Calls for Participation

Thanks to Biorizon’s high-quality facilities, specialized knowledge, years of experience and the successful involvement of the entire bio-aromatics value chain, we manage to produce bio-aromatics continuously (on a kg/h scale). We are currently validating our continuous processes and working with industry partners toward the next stage: demonstration. This makes Shared Research Center Biorizon the most advanced and valued research program in sustainable bio-aromatics worldwide. We offer the chemical industry an excellent platform to make the transition to a circular bio-economy.

Do you want to contribute to our mission to enable commercial production of bio-aromatics by 2025? Come and join us! Take a look at the Biorizon calls for participation, and reach out to our business development managers for more information.

Biorizon invites manufacturers to test bio-aromatics with premium properties

Biorizon invites manufacturers to test bio-aromatics with premium properties

Biorizon co-initiator TNO has made considerable progress in scaling-up the production of functionalized biobased aromatics via Diels-Alder technology starting from furans. This has resulted in a unique portfolio of various samples that bring premium properties such as durability, stability, and high temperature performance to products such as coatings, adhesives, sealants, elastomers, engineering plastics and polyurethane. We invite you to test these samples in your applications and share your experience with us.

LignoValue Pilot: application testing, feedstock testing & building a demo plant

LignoValue Pilot: application testing, feedstock testing & building a demo plant

Recently, Biorizon co-initiator VITO and partners have launched the EFRO LignoValue Pilot project. By Q1 2021, this € 4.3 million project must result in a functioning pilot line in Flanders for the production of bio-aromatics from lignin/wood. The pilot meets the needs of various companies that have expressed an interest in innovative molecules and a willingness to carry out application testing.

Accelerate the development of bio-aromatics

Accelerate the development of bio-aromatics

In 2017, the province of Noord-Brabant, TNO, ECN and the Flemish VITO announced to jointly invest € 10 million in the development of bio-aromatics. Now we are making plans to use the financing to accelerate the development of bio-aromatics. You can join and benefit from a significant leverage on your contribution as well.
