The biobased economy poses new questions. In stead of huge homogeneous raw material flows, the new raw material is (often) scattered and heterogeneous. For this reason REWIN and Proefboerderij de Rusthoeve, organize the workshop “The Collaboration Plan(t)”, because the solution is found in collaboration.

This forum event aims to introduce innovative approaches in technology transfer for the bioeconomy, taking into account the specific requirements of life sciences. Therefore the forum will compare diff erent approaches in Germany and the Netherlands and will not only focus on the transfer from lab to industry, but will also take a broader view on open innovation approaches to create favorable conditions to stimulate collaboration between companies.
This workshop will be an opportunity to have a look at what is new in biobased paint. The day will start with a short state of the art realised by the CORI (Coatings Research Institute). Then, two topics will be studied in detail, one on the paint itself and the other on ingredients. Ingredients are the focus for development, they will lead us to 100% biobased paint.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant and BioBase4SME will be represented at and involved in EFIB 2016 in several ways. Find out more here!
The workshop will give an overview of current developments in the field of bio-based materials.

Eco Treasures BVBA is a company specialising in the revalorisation of natural side streams. It specializes in extraction technology more specific supercritical CO2 extraction. Supercritical CO2 extraction is a green extraction technology with a lot of potential for natural “waste streams”.
The main goal of the project is to facilitate the transition of the Flemish industry to a sustainable, biobased economy by building a competitive biocluster of companies that are able to build new value chains.
The project is primarily aimed at companies from the agro-industry, technology developers and the chemical sector.
The aim of BIOKATALYSE is to acquaint traditional chemical industry with the Key Enabling Technology Biocatalysis. Biocatalysis is a technology that uses enzymes instead of chemical catalysts to catalyse or speed up chemical processes. The target group is the Flemish chemical industry that is mainly making use of conventional chemical conversion techniques.
The project aims to accelerate the growth of the biobased economy, EU and local partners joined forces by providing financial, technological, training, networking and political support to enterprises in North West Europe (NWE) innovating in biobased products and processes.
