We are pleased to send you the first newsletter of BECOOL, a Horizon 2020 research and innovation project to foster the cooperation between the European Union and Brazil, for the development of advanced lignocellulosic biofuels, produced from sustainable agricultural value chains.

Developing Sustainable Value Chains for Advanced Biofuels
Launched in June 2017, BECOOL is based upon three pillars covering the whole value chain: production and harvesting of non-food crops and crop residues, efficient biomass logistic and optimization of conversion pathways.

Innovative cropping systems and lignocellulosic crops - Field updates
An overview on the ongoing agricultural research activities.
A novel system to collect maize cobs
An assessment of the performance of a mechanized system to collect maize cobs.
Logistics - defining full biomass supply chains
From the field's edge to the plant's gate.
Optimizing conversion processes - first year updates
An overview about the research activities in thermochemical and biochemical processing.
A slurry of charcoal and bio-oil for an efficient gasification of lignocellulosic feedstock
A potential strategy to increase biomass-to-advanced biofuels conversion efficiency.
A workshop to harmonize data for integrated sustainability assessment
Matching biomass characteristics with feedstock requirements.
One year of project meetings
The annual meeting of BECOOL was held on 13 and 14 June in Borgo San Lorenzo, Italy.
BECOOL presented at INEA workshop
BECOOL was presented at the clustering meeting on H2020 projects in the area of Biofuels and Alternative Fuels.
