A Biorefinery is termed as a facility that integrates conversion processes and low-environmental impact technologies to produce fuels, power, and chemicals from biomass.
The biorefinery of the future will combine a series of (bio)chemical processes and technologies of the low-environmental results. In this regard, heterogeneously catalyzed reactions will act a significant role in the processing of the so-called platform molecules to important chemicals, biofuel precursors, and energy by means of aqueous-phase processing and environmentally sound methodologies.
Integrated biorefineries distribute with various biomass feedstocks and their conversion technologies to create biofuels and bio-based chemicals. Bio-based chemicals can be a substitution for a high fraction of industrial chemicals and materials from fossil resources.
