Lange, lene, aau

  1. 1. Trends Bioeconomy: Potentials and Barriers Lene Lange, Professor, dr.scient. Research Director, Aalborg University, Denmark
  2. 2. The potentials of the Bioeconomy • Bioeconomy can deliver most efficiently to the Horizon 2020 Vision: • EU as a Smart, Sustainable, and Inclusive Society, creating – Jobs – Local development –also in rural and coastal areas – Increased resource-efficiency and productivity – Technology Export – Increased competitiveness
  3. 3. The Bioeconomy strategy • To include all relevant and sustainable bioresources – not only crop residues; include also – Industrial by-products and side streams – Industrial and household waste and • To unlock the full potentials of the biological materials – not just bioenergy (bulk/low value)
  4. 4. Biorefinery process technology • Biorefinery technologies must be optimized to allow for recovering the value cascade, e.g.: – Protein recovered upfront – Pretreatment should not decompose Hemicellulose polymer before higher value food and feed ingredients has been recovered – Phosporous nutrients to be rescued
  5. 5. Current obstacles • Uneven playing field for different biomass uses (e.g. subsidizing biogas) • Only market incentives (e.g. blend-in directive) for biofuel • Segmenting energy and food in R&D funding options – NOT giving incentives for optimized biomass utilization
  6. 6. Current obstacles (cont) • Too limited funding for developing support technologies (e.g. ICT for resource efficiency not only ICT for energy efficiency) • Regulatories make barriers for upcycling of waste streams – currently restrictions beyond what is based on safety precautions
  7. 7. Robust og Bæredygtig BioEnergi DSF-ENMI Seminar 05.12 2012 MANY TYPES OF BIOREFINERIES -MANY NEW VALUE CHAINS (NEW ENZYMES NEEDED) THE YELLOW BIOREFINERY (STRAW AND CORN STOVER) THE GREEN BIOREFINERY (FRESH GREEN LEAVES) THE GREY BIOREFINERY (FROM SLUDGE => BIO OIL!) THE BLUE BIOREFINERY (MARIN, SEAFOOD WASTE & ALGAE) THE WHITE BIOREFINERY (AGROINDUSTRIAL WASTE) 8
  8. 8. Most Wanted: • Clear political signals towards increased sustainability – no up front choice of specific technologies • Improved framework conditions – building positive investment climate – stimulating creation of markets • Common decision on future Bioeconomy goals – binding targets for resource efficiency
  9. 9. Præsentation af Aalborg Universitet København 10 af 31 aau-cph.dk The Harley Davidson Principle: Stop dreaming –start driving!
