Now available: Final report from Annex XVII

The purpose of Annex XVII has been to support the integration of membrane processes in lignocellulosic biorefineries by providing instructive guidelines how to design and operate membrane plants and  thus to optimize their energy-efficiency and to maximise their fractionation ability in the concept of biorefineries. The final report representing the initial scope of the Annex is now published. However, new tasks have been defined and the Annex will continue its work for three more years.
