On 17th August 2017, a new research project was launched at the Fraunhofer WKI in which the participating partners will develop an innovative concept for the material utilization of recycling and waste wood. For the duration of three years, the Fraunhofer Institute for Wood Research WKI, Green Sugar AG, GNS mbH, ORmatic GmbH and the Leibniz Institute for Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy ATB will work together within the HyAlt4Chem project on the extraction of bio-based chemical products from waste wood. The project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) within the framework of the “KMU-NetC” funding program for small and medium-sized enterprises. The project partners came together in Braunschweig for the ceremonial signing of the cooperation agreement.more info
