Biomass Biorefinery Network

Welcome to the Biomass Biorefinery Network (BBNet), a phase II BBSRC NIBB. Our aim is to act as a focal point to build and sustain a dynamic community of industrial and academic practitioners who will work together to develop new and improved processes for the conversion of non-food biomass into sustainable fuels, chemicals and materials. To support this aim, BBNet will offer research funding and organise events. BBNet membership is free and open to all. If you would like to join us, please register now!

This is a Phase II NIBB which amalgamates the Phase I NIBBs: LBNet, P2P and FoodWasteNet.

These networks have built strong research communities and resources covering many aspects of biomass biorefining. BBNet brings these communities together in a single network to build a cohesive and dynamic community that draws on the respective strengths and experiences developed during Phase I.
