Call for Participation: Application Development

Biorizon co-initiator VITO is looking for companies that are interested in application development, based on bio-aromatic fractions from the Biorizon portfolio, both lignin and sugar derived. We offer a 'menu' of bio-aromatic fractions that can be used as base building blocks for polymer development. Possible functionalities of lignin fractions include antioxidant properties, thermal stabilization, UV blocking, or anti-static properties.

This call might be particularly interesting for:

  • SME’s active in the field of product development looking to increase their biobased content;
  • SME’s developing innovative technologies for delivering new lignins or hemicellulosics;
  • SME’s searching for a collaboration partner to codevelop products;
  • Young, motivated people willing to join us in our developments and get some experience in this innovative, fast moving field.

What do we offer? 

  • A menu of bioaromatic fractions from the portfolio of Biorizon, including lignin and sugar derived aromatics.
  • Bio-aromatic fractions that can be used as base building blocks for polymer development;

What do we ask? 

  • A clear idea on your needs for product development;
  • Your enthusiasm to co-develop via co-funded trajectory in interregional collaboration innovative bioaromatic containing materials  - with engagement for in kind contribution;
  • Your supply of feedstock raw materials.

For more information, please contact Roel Vleeschouwers at or +32 14 33 69 15 to discuss how your organization could benefit from participating in Shared Research Center Biorizon.
