Integrated biorefineries Biorefineries are defined as facilities designed for processing biobased feedstocks into value-added products showing potential for replacing fuels, polymers, commodity chemicals and other products currently manufactured from fossil resources, such as from oil.1-3 The main aim of the biorefinery concept is to create a cost-effective and sustainable way for reducing the reliance on
