ButaNexT project ends with a bang

Brussels – After 3 years, the  ButaNexT project comes to an end this month. Partners have successfully developed and demonstrated, at pilot scale, a more cost-competitive, efficient and environmentally friendly process to convert sustainable renewable feedstocks into biobutanol: a highly promising biofuel and building block chemical.

 

 

The Greenovate! Europe secretariat are leading dissemination activities and have worked hard over the last months to widely promote the results of the project. This culminated in a very successful  ‘Innovation in the bioeconomy’ conference in Brussels on 12 April. Over 60 bioeconomy stakeholders joined us to hear the outcomes of the project and discuss the regulatory framework and market barriers impacting the widespread uptake of bio-based products. Edd Jones from C-Tech Innovation moderated the panel session. At the event we distributed the  ButaNexT final publication, produced by Greenovate! Europe, which summarises the achievements of the project partners.

 

 

Aditionally,  Euronews has produced a video about the project as part of their ‘Futuris’ series, filming with CENER at their Second Generation Biofuels Centre. Our CENER colleagues are currently featured on the Euronews home page next to the Trump-Macron state visit, and the new Royal baby. Bio-based World News, the leading bioeconomy media outlet, have also produced a feature article on ButaNexT, writing enthusiastically about the achievements of the project and the prospects for biobutanol.
