The Network "Biotechnology for Lignocellulosic Biomass: towards the integral use of plant biomass as a renewable resource" (RED LIGNOCEL,, funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities, is a forum which provides the exchange of knowledge and discussion among working teams with interests in the area of new (bio)technologies for the conversion of plant biomass for the production of highly demanded consumer goods.

The main objective of this network is to facilitate dissemination of the generated knowledge concerning the principles of the microbial and enzymatic degradation of lignocellulose. Furthermore, RED LIGNOCEL aims to contribute to the assimilation of the real problems from the industrial processes to the group research lines and to support the transfer of the results to the participating companies.
