South Africa Launches Biorefinery Development Facility in Durban

Posted on : 28 May, 2018

South Africa has a lot of wood, pulp and paper wastes that end up in landfills or are burnt, stockpiled and dumped into oceans. The country is already facing a huge challenge in waste management due to lack of landfill space. To address the situation, the South African government has recently launched a Biorefinery Industry Development Facility (BIDF) in Durban.
The facility will cost R37.5 million and will be the first of its kind in South Africa. The facility will extract maximum value from biomass waste while also supporting innovation in a range of industries, including forestry, agro processing and other biomass-based industries.
The facility will explore ways to extract high-value speciality chemicals wastes such as sawmill and dust shavings, while mill sludge can be converted into nanocrystalline cellulose, biopolymers and biogas.
More about biogas and biomass power in Africa will be discussed at CMT’s 2nd Biomass Trade & BioEnergy Africa on 02-03 October, 2018 in Johannesburg.
Contact Ms. Huiyan at huiyan@cmtsp.com.sg or call +65 6346 9113 for more information on the event.
