20.09.2013, News

Recently, the four founding partners of BioRefining Alliance were joined by two new members: Aarhus University and Danske Halmleverandører & Danske Maskinstationer og Entreprenører. Now, they are joined by another two members. Welcome to Technical University of Denmark and NIRAS Climate & Energy. Thereby, the alliance has doubled its membership.

In July BioRefining Alliance could welcome its two first members besides the founders DONG Energy, Novozymes, Haldor Topsøe and Danish Agriculture & Food Council. Now, the alliance can welcome another two. 

With its four new members Aarhus University, Technical University of Denmark, Danske Halmleverandører & Danske Maskinstationer og Entreprenører and NIRAS Climate & Energy BioRefining Alliance has not only increased but actually doubled its membership by strong representatives from different parts of the value chain.

Naturally, there is still room for other companies, institutions and organisations, which through a membership wish to support BioRefining Alliance's work to promote advanced bioeconomy in the whole value chain from sustainable use of bioresources to biobased products, and that it is reflected in the EU policies.

The members of Danske Halmleverandører & Danske Maskinstationer og Entreprenører grow, collect and distribute a large amount of the biomass Denmark will need for biorefining on an industrial scale.

Technical University of Denmark has a strong position in conversion, biotechnology and chemical engineering.

NIRAS Climate & Energy are applied engineering consultants and are operating in the field between R&D and realised projects. In short, they turn ideas into reality. In biorefining NIRAS Climate & Energy consulted projects on biogas, bioethanol and jetfuel.
