                                     BBRI –

                                        Biomass and Bioenergy

                                     Research Infrastructure
             Unidade de Bioenergia

                                      BBRI is a new Research Infrastructure which was approved in July 2014 by
                                      FCT-Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia of the Ministry of Education and
                                      Science, as the first Research Infrastructure of national strategic interest in
       Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia
                                      Biomass and Bioenergy awarded for integration into the National Roadmap
                                      for Research Infrastructures (RIs) in the field of Energy.

          Francisco Gírio             The BBRI shall contribute for the excellence of research in Portugal in the field
                                      of Bioenergy fully aligned with the main value chains of the Strategic Energy
          Alberto Reis
                                      Technological-SET  PLAN  and  the  implementation  plan  of  the  European
          José Carlos Roseiro         Industrial Bioenergy Initiative (EIBI).
                                      BBRI  did  recently  integrate  an  European  application  to  H2020  INFRAIA-01-
                                      2016 aiming to be a key promoter for a new European RI (acronym: BRISK II)

          Ed. F  - R/C
                                      The BBRI intends to contribute to the excellence of research in Portugal in the
          1649-038 Lisboa, Portugal
                                      field of bioenergy. It is aligned with the main value chains of the European

                                      Strategic Energy Plan (SET PLAN) and in particular the implementation plan of
          Tel.: +351 210 924 721      the European Industrial Initiative on Bioenergy (ELBI)

                                      Scientific, training and dissemination goals
     The  scientific  BBRI  activities  are  focused  on  biomass  -  biochemical  and
        thermochemical conversions - for the production of biofuels, chemicals and
        other biomaterials inserted in the following research sub-platforms (sub-Ris):
                                      • Sugars (biochemical conversion of biomass)
                                      • Thermochemistry (thermochemical conversion of biomass)

                                      • Microalgae
                                      • Sustainability Bioenergy
                                      • Analytical Sciences for Biofuels
                                      The training activities will be directed at professionals working in the ranks of
                                      Biomass  and  Bioenergy  and  the  graduate  students  (master,  doctorate)  in
                                      order to increase the number of skilled people in Bioenergy in Portugal.
                                      The dissemination activities will promote R & D work, training and services
                                      provided  by  the  BBRI,  raising  public  awareness  to  the  technological
                                      challenges  and  the  progress  already  made  in  the  area  of  biofuels  (next
                                      generation), biomass and bioenergy.
