Biofuel Production from Lignocellulosic Materials

    Project Details

    Description

    The overall objective of the 2GBIONRG project is to develop sustainable technologies for production of 2nd generation biofuels (biogas, bioethanol and biodiesel) from lignocellulosic waste material in developing countries in Africa. In addition it is also to utilize residuals from the production as fertilizer improving soil fertility and food security. The suggested technologies will make it possible to switch from a society depending more and more on fossil energy to a modern biomass based society. Ghana will be used as a model country. We will develop and adopt sustainable biofuel production systems for three different types of communities: rural villages, cooperatives and large towns.
    The project is supported by the Danida Fellowship Centre.
