This project is the BioButterfly process, which will cover all R&D phases in the process, from scientific concepts, to the pilot phase and validation on an industrial demonstrator. BioButterfly is backed by a €52 million budget extending over eight years. The project was selected by France’s Agency for the Environment and Energy Management to receive €14.7 million in financing.
