Industry driven Shared Research Center, focusing on technology development for the production of functionalized biobased aromatics for performance materials, chemicals & coatings. Supported by a roadmap & inspired by our community.
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.
Turning waste, that would otherwise be incinerated or end up in landfill, into valuable raw materials for the chemical industry is the challenge being undertaken by a consortium of 12 companies over the next 18 months. Biodegradable waste, nappies, compost and sieving material from wastewater will be converted to aromatic compounds, such as those used in the production of plastics. The innovative Waste2Aromatics project, from the Biorizon Shared Research Centre, will bring the commercial production of cost-competitive bio-aromatics, along with the circular economy, significantly closer.
Wageningen UR and Biorizon founder TNO join forces in a new research project: Furanic Intermediates and Aromatic Derivatives from biomass or briefly FIAD. The project aims to create knowledge for the production of furans, and furan-derived biobased aromatics, from various sources of carbohydrate-based biomass. A number of important partners along the value chain - Avantium, Beckers, Covestro and Klüber Lubrication – will participate in the project.
Recently Biorizon's Waste2Aromatics project was covered in Chemical Industry Digest in India.
