The AFTER-BIOCHEM project brings together 12 key bioeconomy actors and was successfully launched online, on June 11, 2020. Over the next 4 years, it will develop the first of its kind flagship biorefinery in France and so create innovative and more sustainable value chains from non-food biomass feedstock, by producing multiple high added-value products. Applications will target various markets such as fragrances & flavorings, personal care, food & feed, pharmaceuticals, and industrial chemicals.
Duration: 48 months (May 2020 – April 2024) | Total budget: € 33 M
AFTER-BIOCHEM is financed with 20 million euros from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (BBI-JU) under the grant agreement No 887432. BBI-JU is a public-private partnership between the European Union (H2020 program) and the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), an organization that connects large and small/medium enterprises, research institutions, universities and public and private bodies at European level involved in the development of the circular bio-economy.
