ABOWE Biorefinery Final Seminar 30.10. in Helsinki
Wednesday, 08 October 2014 11:12

Warmly welcome to the Final seminar of ABOWE Baltic Sea Region Biorefinery project in Helsinki Viikki Campus area on 30.10.2014.

In the Final seminar will be heard test results of a novel biorefinery in three countries (Sweden, Poland, Finland) as well as future trends of biorefining. Moreover, it is possible to visit the mobile research station which has been constructed in a Finnish co-operation. The biorefinery has been innovated  by Adj. Prof. Elias Hakalehto (Finnoflag Oy and University of Eastern Finland) and the research station has been designed and constructed  in the co-operation project in Savonia University of Applied Sciences.

The topic is “Biorefining around the Baltic Sea and Global Ecodevelopment“. The topics integrate the regional and global aspects of developing biorefining. Then acting locally would produce global ecodevelopment.

The seminar will be held in Lecture Hall 1 of the B-Building in Latokartanonkaari 7-9. The exhibition of the mobile Pilot A biorefinery pilot plant will be organized in the area of Tropical Garden in the address Koetilantie 1.

Reservations are kindly wished to be done until 24.10. to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Output from testing period in Poland and Introductory seminar in Wroclaw
Thursday, 10 July 2014 12:27

Introductory Seminar was held in Wroclaw on 2.7.2014. There were also presented results from the two-month testing period of Pilot A.

The production of 2,3-butanediol and some other organic compounds were at high levels. This was remarkable achievement by the Polish-Finnish co-operation. In fact, Finnoflag biorefinery method has now been producing successful yields both in Finland and now in Poland by the Polish group led by Assistant Professor Emilia den Boer from Wroclaw University of Technology.

The director of the testing site ZGO Gac Ltd Andrzej Sobolak gave fine presentation on the construction of their new waste treatment plant.

Moreover, Professor Ryszard Szpadt from Wroclaw University of Technology gave lecture describing the potential biomasses in the Lower Silesia region which turned out to contain huge potentials of bioenergy production.

The 2,3-butanediol Downstream processes have been studied in co-operation with Ostfalia University of Applied Sciences (Eng. Tim Freidank and Professor Thorsten Ahrens).

Researcher Tuomas Huopana from University of Eastern Finland was characterizing the joint uses of biomass sources in biochemical and biogas production.

Adjunct Professor Elias Hakalehto introduced potential applications of Finnoflag technology of various fields, including microbiological purification of brown coal for environmental friendly combustion.

All news with respect  to ABOWE tests and potential future applications have produced very potential indications.
