SMARTBOX

May 2019 - April 2023

SMARTBOX will develop an advanced computational engineering platform specifically for oxidative enzymes. Relying on this platform, SMARTBOX will develop the one-enzyme conversion of HMF into FDCA and intermediates, and the one-enzyme conversion of lignin monomers into a potential biobased building block for polycarbonates and vanillin.

SYLFEED

September 2017 - August 2021

The grand challenge of the SYLFEED demonstration project is to scale-up and validate the bio-refinery process that converts lignocellulose into SCP suitable to formulate fish feed.

iFermenter

May 2018 - April 2022

iFermenter will render production of high value products with residual sugar stream highly efficient and cost-effective contributing to circular economy.

SHEALTHY

May 2019 - April 2023

SHEALTHY aims to assess and develop an optimal combination of non-thermal sanitization, preservation and stabilization methods to improve the safety (inactivation of pathogens and spoilage microorganisms), while preserving the nutritional quality (up to 30%) and prolonging the shelf-life (up to 50%) of minimally processed F&V products.

BioRen

November 2018 - October 2022

The objective of BioRen is to develop competitive drop-in biofuels for road transport from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (OFMSW). A higher value fuel is targeted: glycerol tertiary butyl ether (GTBE) is a promising fuel additive to both diesel and gasoline that improves engine performance and cuts harmful exhaust emissions (e.g. fine dust).

Newpack

June 2018 - May 2021

A new circular economy value chain will be generated from agro-food wastes that will be exploited for the production of PHB, while designing and validating the process up to pilot scale.

SIMBA

November 2018 - October 2022

Sustainable innovation of microbiome applications in food system As the world population is continuously increasing, the supply of food with equal accessibility has become a major issue and future challenge. Microbes are an unexploited tool to increase food productivity and quality. The objective of SIMBA project is to harness complex soil and marine microbial communities […]

KET4CleanProduction

January 2018 - February 2021

KET4CleanProduction will ensure access of manufacturing SMEs to technology services and facilities situated in other European member states and enable cross-border cooperation. The project will also foster the use of advanced manufacturing technologies and related key KETs by SMEs to upgrade their production processes towards resource- and energy efficiency and sustainability.

CO2PERATE

March 2018 - February 2022

CO2PERATE aims to develop catalytic technologies to convert CO2 into formic acid, using renewable electricity. Formic acid will subsequently be used as building block for the biosynthetic production of value-added chemicals, as a building block for the chemical industry, or as a potential carrier for energy storage.

SmartPilots

April 2016 - March 2020

Improving policies in support of shared pilot facilities to increase their impact on the Key Enabling Technology Industrial Biotech and the European Bioeconomy SmartPilots EVENTS We invite all stakeholders (managing authorities, intermediate bodies, regional funding authorities and applicants, funding beneficiaries, innovation organisations, cluster organisation, users of SPF…)  with an interest in shared pilot facilities (SPF) and […]

Falcon

January 2017 - December 2020

Falcon: Fuel And chemicals from Lignin through enzymatic and chemical CONversion.
FALCON aims to convert this lignin-rich industrial waste of 2G biofuel plants to higher value products, in particular shipping fuels, fuel additives and chemical building blocks. This would be the next consecutive step in turning waste to products, thus minimizing waste and simultaneously providing new alternatives for fossil resource based processes.

NanoPack

January 2017 - December 2019

NanoPack: Pilot line manufacturing of functional polymer nanocomposites from natural halloysite nanotubes: demonstrating controlled release of active antimicrobials in food packaging applications.
NanoPack aims to develop and demonstrate state-of-the-art antimicrobial packaging solutions for perishable foods based on natural nanomaterials that will prevent food-borne illness outbreaks and reduce food waste caused by early spoilage.
