New Work Programme 2019-2021 started

The aim of IEA Bioenergy Task42 ‘Biorefining in a Circular Economy’ is to facilitate the commercialisation and market deployment of environmentally sound, socially acceptable, and cost-competitive biorefinery systems and technologies, and to advise policy and industrial decision makers accordingly.


In the 2019-2021 triennium, Task42 will focus on:

  • Provision of quantitative, scientifically sound, and understandable data on technical, economic and ecological added-value of biorefining to co-produce bioenergy and bio-products in a sustainable way – WP1
  • Provision of global biorefineries implementation status, major deployment barriers and market data – WP2
  • Provision of an international platform for cooperation and information exchange – WP3
