BioBoost Project Successfully Completed
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.
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.
