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.
