BECOOL is a research and innovation project to foster the cooperation between EU and Brazil in the development of advanced biofuels, from sustainable agricultural value chains, based on lignocellulosic biomass. The project is funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission. The activities of BECOOL are aligned with those of BioVALUE, a twin project in Brazil, funded by five State Foundations and five Industrial Companies.
The cooperation between Europe and Brazil on advanced biofuels will bring mutual benefits and will create synergies at scientific level through the development of a series of research and demonstration activities. This cooperation will help exploit the full economic potential of advanced biofuel value chains, while creating unique business opportunities for both Brazilian and European companies.
