The Norwegian Biorefinery Laboratory

The Norwegian Biorefinery Laboratory (NorBioLab) is a national research infrastructure for bioenergy and biorefinery research.

NorBioLab aims to strengthen the cooperation between national stakeholders involved in the development of processes for sustainable conversion of Norwegian land and sea-based biomass into new, environmentally friendly biochemicals, biomaterials and bioenergy products. With advanced research tools, the laboratory aims to help develop new climate- and environment- friendly processes and products based on forest, agricultural and marine biomass, and to verify new technological processes before further implementation. NorBioLab focuses in particular on providing testing and demonstration services within biofuel and energy, but the area of food and feed and biochemicals is increasingly becoming important business areas.

NorBioLab is available both to national and international stakeholders (universities, institutes and industries), providing its services to companies on commercial contract basis as well as engaging in research and development projects with co-financing from national (e.g. the Research Council of Norway) and international Public funding (e.g. H2020).
