the AFORE Workshop in Stockholm

Clarion Sign Hotel, Stockholm, Sverige

At the last day of the Nordic Wood and Biorefinery Conference in Stockholm next year the EU-project AFORE holds a local workshop.


AFORE is an EU-project coordinated by VTT, Finland. Its aim is to develop novel bio-based solutions for the separation, fractionation, and primary upgrading of green forest-based chemicals. These will be used as starting materials for current and novel value-added applications. At the workshop in March some results from the project will be presented.


The workshop is free of charge.
