Lactic acid and biosurfactants sourced from sustainable agricultural and industrial (food) WASTE feedstocks as novel FUNCtional ingredients for consumer products. The WASTE2FUNC project aims to resolve supply chain hurdles towards the efficient conversion of food (crop) waste into two types of biobased functional molecules for use in home- and personal care applications: lactic acid and microbial biosurfactants.
Advanced chemicals production from biogenic CO2 emissions for circular bio-based industries Biorefinery industries are in a unique position to lead the way in turning CO2 emissions into added-value chemicals due to their intrinsic keenness towards innovation and their potential to transform their biogenic CO2 waste streams into bio-based chemicals that can be integrated within their […]
Raising disruptive bioeconomy ventures, start-ups and spin-offs to the top The BioeconomyVentures project aims to build the reference platform for bioeconomy-based start-ups and spin-offs seeking to gain access to finance, becoming the main meeting point in the European bioeconomy. Our solution, aligned with the European Bioeconomy Strategy (2018) and the vision and strategy of the […]
Tech4Biowaste will set-up a database providing a comprehensive technology overview (TRL4-9) for the valorisation of bio-waste (food waste and garden waste) into value added applications.
UPLIFT seeks to develop industrial scalable enzymatic and microbial degradation processes to selectively depolymerize and upcycle plastic packaging waste materials, which are currently considered unrecyclable; on the other hand, the project will manufacture at pilot scale new renewable eco-polymers specifically designed to ensure easier end-of-life processing.
The BIOMAC project aims to build a sustainable OITB (Open Innovation Test Bed), composed of 17 pilot plants and supported by several technical and non-technical services spread across Europe for the scale-up of new bio-based materials.
The first green, non-toxic antifouling agent for sealants, coatings and paints to transform the construction and marine industries.
Glaukos will develop innovative textile fibres and textile coatings that reconcile an excellent environmental performance with adequate technical characteristics.
BioSFerA aims to develop a cost-effective interdisciplinary technology to produce sustainable aviation and maritime fuels. Thus, biogenic residues and wastes will be gasified and the syngas will be fermented to produce bio-based triacylglycerides (TAGs).
The conventional meat production system is not sustainable and climate neutral. The increasing concerns regarding animal welfare have also pushed the meat market to look for different means of production for instance of vegan “meat”.
USABLE PACKAGING project will establish a new value chain for bioplastics. This will be based on low-cost and widely-available feedstock, such as by-products and sidestreams from the food processing industry.
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.
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.
Providing innovative microbiome solutions to increase food security, nutrition, and help address key societal challenges.
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).
The Prolific project will apply a range of processing technologies to agro-industrial residues of legumes, fungi and coffee in order to recover significant amounts of proteins/peptides, fibres and other value-added compounds.
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.
iFermenter will render production of high value products with residual sugar stream highly efficient and cost-effective contributing to circular economy.
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.
SPICY aims at creating a new and profitable value chain in the Flemish bio-economy by connecting sugar feedstock suppliers with fermentation-based and chemical biorefinery companies to end-users active in chemical and polymer production.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) bouwt infrastructuur voor de ondersteuning van de technologietransfer tussen bedrijven en BBEPP.
Bio Base Europe Pilot Plant (BBEPP) is building infrastructure to support the technology transfer between companies and BBEPP.
BIOtechnological processes based on microbial platforms for the CONversion of CO2 from iron&steel industry into commodities for chemicals and plastics
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.
The AFTERLIFE project proposes a flexible, cost- and resource-efficient process for recovering and valorising the relevant fractions from wastewater.
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.
