  1. 1. Environmental Assessment of Emerging Bio-based Production - Possibilities in a Future Bio-economy

    Författare :Anna Ekman; Miljö- och energisystem; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Biorefinery; Bio-based chemicals; Life cycle assessment; Industrial biotechnology; Bio-economy;

    Sammanfattning : The bio-economy has been put forward as a strategy to increase economic growth without this leading to increased emissions of greenhouse gases. A key concept behind the bio-economy is the increased use of biomass for applications such as the production of bio-based chemicals and materials but also an increased importance for biotechnology and biorefinery systems in the production of these products.

    Sammanfattning : The role of forest biomass as a replacement for fossil fuels and products is becoming increasingly prominent as a means to mitigate climate change. To guide a sustainable transition towards a forest-based bio-economy, it is important that advantages and disadvantages of forest products are assessed, to ensure that the products deliver environmental impact reduction.

  3. 3. The transition to a bio-based economy : Toward an integrated understanding

    Författare :Therese Bennich; Salim Belyazid; Pål Börjesson; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bio-based economy; bio-economy; sustainability transitions; 2030 Agenda; Sustainable Development Goals; integrated sustainability assessment; systems analysis; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Sammanfattning : The bio-based economy has gained increasing attention in societal and academic debates over the past two decades, and is argued to hold solutions to several pressing sustainability challenges. However, it is not yet clear if the high-reaching aspirations of the bio-based economy can be realized. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Identifying drivers and barriers for market growth within the industry producing wooden multi-family houses : Land allocation process for future growth

    Författare :Fredrik Lindblad; Bengt Magnusson; Tomas Nord; Ritva Toivonen; Linnéuniversitetet; []

    Sammanfattning : Forest biomass is expected to play an increasingly important role in tomorrow´s global bio-economy as one of the main renewable sources of materials, chemicals and energy. In the framework of the biorefinery concept, the forestry industry is looking for new processes to utilize several fractions in the biomass (cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin etc. LÄS MER
