Movie: First Biobased Industrial Coating Demonstrated in the Bright Coatings Project

An important milestone has been achieved: the successful demonstration of bio MPA in industrial coatings. Biorizon spin-off company Relement teamed up with Worlée Chemie and Baril Coatings to successfully demonstrate this game-changing industrial coating: a first of a kind, high performance, waterborne alkyd coating; incorporating Relement's ingredient bio MPA to replace the fossil-based ingredient phthalic anhydride.

LigninPLUS Project: Expand Pilot Line for Lignin-Based Bio-Aromatics

Within the LigninPLUS project, Biorizon co-initiator VITO aimed to expand the existing pilot infrastructure platform built around LignoValue Pilot (EFRO Flanders) and PILLAR II (Moonshot LSI) for demonstrating innovative lignin processes at an industrially relevant scale to achieve faster innovations in the lignin-to-aromatics value chain.

Dutch public-private sponsored project AROMATICS kicks-off

Fourteen partners join forces in the AROMATICS project, which stands for Aromatic Renewables as an Opportunity for Materials with Improved Circularity and Sustainability. They aim to reduce the dependence of the existing value chain on fossil-derived aromatic chemicals; from the chemical industry up to brand owners. The project partners will accomplish this by developing processes to produce aromatics from renewable feedstock. This 3-year project is performed with MOOI-funding from the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs & Climate.

Cross-border BIO-CAPPP project started: working together on building blocks for sustainable products with premium properties

In June 2023, six partners from Flanders and the Netherlands started the BIO-CAPPP project. Over the next 3 years, together with companies, experts and students, they will develop sustainable chemical building blocks and apply them in products for the construction and textile sectors, among others. The application of these bio-aromatics not only makes the products more sustainable, but also provides premium properties. In this way, BIO-CAPPP contributes to the transition to a circular economy. The project has a total budget of €4.3 million and is co-funded by Interreg Flanders-Netherlands, VLAIO, the provinces of Antwerp, East-Flanders and North Brabant and the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy.
