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.
Biorizon and partners have been granted a European and provincial contribution to organize, coordinate and scale up the research in the field of bio-aromatics in Southern Netherlands.
Ludo Diels, senior researcher sustainable chemistry at Biorizon partner VITO, is very positive about the future of lignin. This wood component used to be a waste product, useful at most for energy production; now, research institutes and companies develop many applications.
Biorizon inspired many representatives from industry at its second Community Event, held on 17 November. It presented a state of affairs about the progress Biorizon is making along the ‘road to bio-aromatics’, and what challenges lie ahead.
