Project to develop sustainable raw materials chemical industry

19 December 2017

Biorizon partner, TNO, ECN and VITO and the Province Noord-Brabant are jointly investing 10 million euro in the development of bio-aromatics. Bio-aromatics are sustainable raw materials for the chemical industry which can replace raw materials from e.g. petroleum. Shared Research Center Biorizon will use the funds to finance various projects designed to bring the ultimate aim closer: enabling the commercial production of bio-aromatics for industry in 2025.
The research lines are TNO: From sugars to aromatics; ECN: Thermochemical conversion of biomass into aromatics and VITO: From lignin, which gives wood its stiffness, to aromatics (News Item TNO, 1 December 2017).
