We are happy to announce that the BioBoost project which has been completed in July 2015 is now also formally finished. BioBoost is focussed on boosting bioenergy through biomass-based energy intermediates using a de-centralized infrastructure for conversion of biological residues to bio-oils. HEAL developed a simulation and optimization software for optimizing plant locations, capacities and logistics.
The resulting software tool is now available as an add-on for HeuristicLab.
A short summary on the project has been published on the EU commission websites: "Biomass for for energy: from field to fuel" and on the Horizon2020 websites
The main goals and challenges as well as results are explained in a 10-minute long documentary video on BioBoost.
A European R&D project funded under contract 282873 within the Seventh Framework Programme by the European Commission.
