Brazil-EU Cooperation for Development of Advanced Lignocellulosic Biofuels


BECOOL is the Brazil-EU Cooperation for Development of Advanced Lignocellulosic Biofuels and a Horizon 2020 research and innovation project.

As stated, it aims to foster cooperation between the European Union and Brazil for the development of advanced lignocellulosic biofuels, produced from sustainable agricultural value chains.

The BECOOL innovative cropping systems not only improves logistics, but also increases the availability of biomass feedstock by at least 50% without negatively impacting food production, soil quality, and customary land uses.

More specifically, efficiency improvements to the gasification of new feedstocks achieve the optimal gas quality ideal from non-conventional sources (e.g. lignocellulosic crops and residues). The use of energy carriers in gasification overcomes a major logistical barrier for the use of low-energy density feedstock, while the valorization of lignin-rich residues dramatically improves energy efficiency of the overall value chain.
