Bio4Energy is a research environment that develops methods and tools for conducting efficient and sustainable biorefinery based on forest-sourced materials and organic waste, and bioenergy technology.
In doing so we aim to promote a new generation of industrial innovations when it comes to making biofuels or other bio-based products based on "green" chemicals.
The Bio4Energy research environment includes researchers in the fields of bioenergy and biorefinery across three universities in northern Sweden: Umeå University, Luleå University of Technology and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences.
A number of industrial partners and research institutes are also part of the research environment. Bio4Energy has been selected by the Swedish Government's as "strategic research initative" in the field of bioenergy and biorefinery.
