BioConSepT was a €13 mil EU-funded project which aimed to produce consumer goods out of biomass, i.e. plant matter, which is not competing with the food chain. Non-edible fats & oils and wood was the feedstock (“ingredients”) of the 2nd generation biomass process. Additionally, it aimed to be 30% cheaper and 30% more sustainable than the corresponding chemical routes or the biotechnology processes starting from 1st generation edible feedstocks.
RTDS was leading the Dissemination & Exploitation work package.
