Biorizon focuses on the technology development for the production of functionalized biobased aromatics for performance materials, chemicals & coatings. Its ambition is to become one of the world's top centers in this field within five years.
Global leaders as well as SME companies in the fields of feedstock, conversion, equipment and end-products are invited to join our industry driven, open innovation Shared Research Center.
This week Biorizon is at the BIO World Congress in San Diego. Joop Groen presented Shared Research Center Biorizon on Monday where he also participated in a panel discussion on bio-aromatics. Joop's presentation was well received and was prominently covered in the recap of the BIO World Congress Day I.
Taking the next steps in research into bioaromatics and the building of testing grounds is what Green Chemistry Campus and Brightlands Chemelot Campus are starting to work on together. The total size of the SCeLiO-4B project is €11.4 million. Because greening of the chemical sector is high on the agenda, the European Union has awarded a €4.5 million grant. Four questions to TNO's Joop Groen.
Shared Research Center Biorizon scales up its bio-aromatics research considerably again. For the next 3 years Biorizon, together with 9 partners, will work on the scaling up of technology for the production of aromatics from biomass in the cross-border BIO-HArT-project. By the end of 2018 this must result in functioning bench scale demonstrators that can produce samples for the industry on a kilogram scale. Besides that, the processes for the production of bio-aromatics will be optimized further.
