Bioendev want’s to inform about an interest project that we have been a part of during 2016. The project is called Bio4Metals and is lead by Swerea MEFOS in Luleå and financed by EU. The main purpose is to explode if biomass can replace fossil carbon in metal production. The project is also looking at to increase the profitability of northen Sweden as a large supplier of biomass by strengthening opportunities for local processing of biomass into biocoal that can be used as a substitute for fossil carbon in metal production. This also means reduced climate impact and a great contribution to the promotion of both Sweden and the EU’s environmental objectives. Other partners in the project is Umeå University, Processometri AB and BioFuel Region AB.
