Ph.D. course: Historical, technological and societal background to forestry and forest-based biorefining in Nordic countries

events |

This course is a general introduction to the development of forest-based biorefineries. It gives a historical, technological and societal background to forest-based biorefining, with focus on the Nordic countries and on sustainable development.

Forest-based biorefineries process forest biomass into e.g. chemicals, materials, fuels and energy using a wide variety of conversion technologies. This course will cover different aspects of biorefining:

  • Assessment of forest biomass supply chains for biorefining
  • Historical aspects of forestry, forest-industrial processes, and forest-based biorefineries
  • Development of main conversion processes for forest biomass (mechanical, chemical, thermal, and biochemical processes)
  • Environmental impact and sustainability aspects
