Bioenergy Retrofits for Europe's Industry
EU-funded BIOFIT project will facilitate bioenergy production by retrofitting Europe’s industries.
Enschede - Bioenergy is an essential form of renewable energy, providing an estimated 60%
of current renewable energy supply in the EU28. Anno 2018 the production of bioenergy
takes on many forms. Spurred by innovation, bioenergy technologies are becoming ever
more advanced and diverse, leading to the energy-efficient production of power, heat and
cooling and a variety of transport fuels. Retrofitting – which means replacing a part of an
existing facility or installation with state-of-the-art equipment – can be a cost-effective
solution to expanding bioenergy use in industry. Retrofitting is one of the fast ways to
increase Europe’s renewable energy share by making the energy production of existing
industries more sustainable.
