Bio4Energy is an international research environment based in northern Sweden that develops methods and tools for conducting efficient and sustainable biorefinery based on woody raw materials and refuse, as well as organic waste.

In March 2015, 250 researchers were members of Bio4Energy, each affiliated with one of the five founding members of the research environment. They are Umea University, Lulea University of Technology, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and the research institutes Innventia and the SP Energy Technology Centre at Pitea.

Bio4Energy also has an extensive network of industrial actors in the biorefinery and bioenergy sectors.

The idea behind Bio4Energy is to bring together the best Sweden-based brains active in the specific field of biorefinery research and development based on feedstock from the forest and some (other) types of organic waste, and to fill knowledge gaps by recruiting top class scientists from all over the world into the research environment. Bio4Energy is world leading in some focal areas of the research which its members perform.
