The COST Action FP1306: lignin valorization issues


The joint meeting of WG1 and WG3 of the COST Action FP1306, October 14th and 15th in Litvínov, Czech Republic.

Our participation:

  • Nanoengineering photocatalysts for lignin-based model molecules upgrading”, Juan C. Colmenares, Agnieszka Magdziarz, Ewelina Kuna. Institute of Physical Chemistry, PAS, ul. Kasprzaka 4452, 01 – 224 Warsaw, Poland.
  • Environmental and Techno-economic Assessment of Micro-cogeneration Systems based on Biomass: Background and Project Proposal”, Fernando Colmenares1, Janka Dibdiakova2, Simona Merola3, Juan Carlos Colmenares4, Adrian Irimescu31Research Group TERMOMEC/​Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia, Calle 50A No. 41 – 34, Medellín, Colombia. 2Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, PO Box 115, NO-1431 Ås, Norway. 3Istituto Motori/​CNR, Via Marconi 4, 80125 Napoli, Italy. 4Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, ul. Kasprzaka 4452, 01 – 224 Warsaw, Poland.

The objective of the joint meeting is to discuss issues that are at the interface of lignin isolation and pretreatment, and lignin upgrading (valorization) and to share intensively knowledge from both points of view. It should allow us making good progress when designing upgrading routes for lignin valorization.


We are using this opportunity to express our gratitude to the Universidad Cooperativa de Colombia, the Norwegian Institute of Bioeconomy Research, the Istituto Motori/​CNR, the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the Polish Academy of Sciences, the WG3 and the WG4 of COST Action FP1306 who supported us.

This research was partially supported by the National Science Centre (NCN) in Poland within research project 2013/11/N/ST5/01923.
