Launch of BIO-QED, European research project for developing biochemicals from renewable sources

19 March 2014

Opening new industrial routes for the production of important chemicals from renewable sources rather than traditional petrochemical sources: this, in summary, is the aim of the BIO-QED project, financed by the European Union as part of the Seventh Framework Programme, involving 10 partners from 6 European countries (Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Croatia and Spain).
The project, which will last for 4 years, was officially launched on 1 January 2014. BIO-QED fits perfectly with the EU’s Bioeconomy strategy, which is intended to guide the European economic system towards a broader and more sustainable use of resources (Press Release Novamont, 27 February 2014).
