Biorefinica 2006, 11/12 October 2006, Osnabrück, Germany 5 Background Role biorefineries Current production costs of biomass-derived products are generally too high to be market competitive without governmental support Biomass is expected to play a major role in greening the Dutch economy Biomass-derived products will be applied in a variety of market sectors Domestic biomass contractability covers less than half of the future needs; the larger part of the biomass or biomass-based products has to be imported (relatively high costs) Development and deployment of high-efficiency Biorefineries unavoidable

Biorefinica 2006, 11/12 October 2006, Osnabrück, Germany 8 Dutch knowledge network on biorefineries “Biorefinery.nl” A close co-operation of different stakeholders (industry, universities, institutes, NGOs, GOs) with a broad variety of disciplines working together in research, development and demonstration of (innovative) biorefinery concepts for implementation in the Dutch economy and abroad Knowledge import and dissemination (www.biorefinery.nl, newsletters, national workshops, …) Definition of a national Biorefinery Vision within an European and global framework Develop a Technology Roadmap, incl. SRA and Technology Deployment Plan
IEA Bioenergy Task 42 Biorefineries (1) IEA Bioenergy Integrated biorefinery concepts convert a variety of feedstocks, including residues, into a portfolio of products with improved energetic chain efficiency, economy and environmental effects, compared to stand-alone processes often producing only one or two products. The methodology of integrated system approach – optimising the overall added-value of the portfolio of biomass-derived products, within an acceptable overall ecological framework – is one of the major aspects in which this Task distinguishes from the other IEA Bioenergy Tasks.
IEA Bioenergy Task 42 Biorefineries (3) IEA Bioenergy 0. Task web-site. 1. Common definition and classification system on Biorefineries. 2. Mapping of existing biorefineries in participating countries. 3. Identification of biorefinery (related) RD&D programmes in participating countries. 4. Financial-economic and ecological advantages and disadvantages of biorefinery- based co-production over single product processes. 5. Fostering multi-disciplinary partnerships of key stakeholders (platform function). 6. Co-production of chemicals and secondary energy carriers, addressing a.o. favourable functionalised chemicals and platform chemicals (building blocks) to be co-produced, incl. market compatibility aspects. 7. Co-operation with ongoing international activities, a.o. other IEA Bioenergy Tasks and EU Technology Platforms. 8. Dissemination of knowledge, including teaching.
