The Green Chemistry Campus multiplies the chances of biobased business success for entrepreneurs who work on biobased innovations on the cutting edge of agro and chemistry.
Shared Research Center Biorizon focuses on the technology development for the production of biobased aromatics for performance materials, chemicals & coatings.
Today TNO, VITO and ECN signed an agreement to collaborate in the Shared Research Center Biorizon, with ECN incorporating its thermochemical research on the production of bio-aromatics within Biorizon. This research center works with industry on the technological development for the production of aromatics from biomass. Aromatics are one of the main building blocks for the chemical industry. By replacing fossil resources with biomass, Biorizon makes a significant contribution to the emergence of a sustainable economy.
The province of Noord-Brabant received an honourable mention for its bio-based innovations at the Green Chemistry Campus in Bergen op Zoom during the presentation of the AER Regional Innovation Award on 30 November. The Biorizon Waste2Aromatics project was specifically mentioned.
Green Chemistry Campus tenant Michael Boot from Progression Industry has recently successfully filed a patent for using lignin for liquid fuel composition.
