From 29 to 31 January 2020, the BABET-REAL5 consortium met for the last time in the South-West of France to discuss the final results achieved during the project. On 31 January, the project meeting culminated with the last workshop, in which the French business case was presented to and discussed with local and national stakeholders from the agriculture and biofuel sectors.
The main aim of BABET-REAL5 is to develop an alternative solution for the production of second generation ethanol based on smaller industrial scale than the already realised plants of first generation ethanol. Such plants of small industrial scale shall be applicable to a large number of countries, rural areas and feedstock.
The target is to reach technical, environmental and economical viabilities in production units processing at least 30 000 tons equivalent dry biomass per year. This approach will definitely enlarge the scope of biomass feedstock exploitable for the production of biofuel and create better conditions for the deployment of production sites, to the benefit of rural areas in Europe and worldwide.
BABET-REAL5 has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme .
