Call for Participation: Test Samples of Tailored Lignin Fractions in Industrial Polymer Applications

Biorizon co-initiator VITO is looking for parties that want to test samples of tailored lignin fractions in industrial polymer applications and that are willing to share the results under confidentiality agreement. When the technical results are promising we would like to jointly develop this via (co)funded trajectories, either bilateral or in consortia of partners.

Biorizon co-initiator VITO offers tailored bio-aromatic lignin fractions that can be used as functional additives for polymer formulations. Possible functionalities of lignin fractions include antioxidant properties, thermal stabilization, UV blocking, and anti-static properties.

The call might be particularly interesting for 

  • Product/Material developers in CASE markets (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers), foams, and packaging.
  • Lignin suppliers (or derived mixtures containing lignin) – depending on the speed by which the market entry of the material is targeted.

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.
