Energy transition


In the Re4Industry project, energy-intensive industries in Europe are guided towards the application of renewable energy in their production processes and facilities. Together with project partners, BTG is developing a long-term strategy with concrete action plans for different sectors of the energy-intensive industry on the path to total decarbonisation towards 2050.




In the Netherlands and Europe, large amounts of biowaste are released every year, such as organic waste from gardens and public gardens, and food waste from households, restaurants and the food industry. Biowaste is an important raw material for the circular economy and various technologies are available for converting the biowaste into useful products. In the Tech4Biowaste project, a complete database is being developed in which not only existing, but also new promising technologies for the use and valorisation of biowaste are included.



In the Groen goud (Green gold) project, BTG performed a full LCA to determine the environmental impact of pyrolysis oil biorefinery, in which the pyrolysis oil is fractionated and applied as a wood modification treatment to replace fossil creosotes. The LCA shows that the use of pyrolytic sugars as a wood modification treatment has significantly lower environmental impacts than the fossil fuel-based creosotes. The results have been published in a scientific journal.
