eThekwini Biomass Application Centre - Lumec

eThekwini Municipality

LUMEC developed a business case for a proposed biomass application centre in Durban for the eThekwini Municipality in partnership with PRM International. The facility will process alien invasive and other biomass feedstocks into bio-based fibres and proteins in order to develop new value chains such as animal feed, bio-based packaging, bio-composites, and other applications such as green concrete.  The approach followed was to unpacking the value chain of each potential application to determine the viability of supporting a processing and application facility in eThekwini.
