Biorizon scales up its bio-aromatics research again

Shared Research Center Biorizon scales up its bio-aromatics research considerably again. For the next 3 years Biorizon, together with 9 partners, will work on the scaling up of technology for the production of aromatics from biomass in the cross-border BIO-HArT-project. By the end of 2018 this must result in functioning bench scale demonstrators that can produce samples for the industry on a kilogram scale. Besides that, the processes for the production of bio-aromatics will be optimized further.
