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.

ZCORE Call for Participation: Bio-Aromatic Sample Evaluation and Seaweed Bio-Refinery

ZCORE Call for Participation: Bio-Aromatic Sample Evaluation and Seaweed Bio-Refinery

Seaweed-derived (pseudo) aromatics are currently being tested as an additive in six different applications. Initial results are promising. Therefore, Biorizon's ZCORE project partners are looking for companies that are willing to test bio-aromatic samples in resins or coatings and/or to jointly assess the feasibility to industrialize seaweed bio-refinery concepts and commercialize the product streams.

Call for Participation: Application Development

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.

Call for Participation: Continuous Processing of Lignins in Solvents & Characterization

Call for Participation: Continuous Processing of Lignins in Solvents & Characterization

Biorizon co-initiator VITO is looking for parties that are interested in continuous processing of lignins in solvents and characterization of the obtained fractions. We are able to offer continuous processing of lignins in solvents at lab scale (10 – 20g/hour output) from February 2022. Continuous processing of lignins in solvents with pilot scale equipment (1 kg/hour output) will be possible from September 2022. The aim is to obtain tailored bio-aromatic lignin fractions that can be used as functional additives for polymer formulations. Furthermore, we are able to offer the characterization of obtained fractions and functionalities of derived lignins.

Call for Participation: Hemicellulose Valorization via Furfural

Call for Participation: Hemicellulose Valorization via Furfural

Biorizon co-initiator TNO is looking for parties that are seeking to increase the valorization potential of their residual hemicellulose via versatile platform molecule furfural. TNO has the network, expertise, facilities and IP to realize this by converting hemicellulose into furfural, aligned with its upgrading to stable renewable building blocks. These buildings blocks have the potential of reducing the environmental footprint and improving user properties when used in applications such as coatings, resins, insulation foams, lubricants and surfactants.
