Opening new industrial routes for the production of the important chemicals BDO and IA from renewable sources rather than petrochemical sources is, in summary, the aim of the BioQED project. 13 partners from 7 countries bundled their strengths to successfully create value chains starting from the renewable resource all the way to the finished product such as latex polymers from alkyl itaconates.
The BioQED workshop will start with a short overview of the project and the market for the BioQED platform chemicals BDO and IA, the rest of the workshop will focus on the applications of these value chains. The programme is available at http://bio-qed.eu/workshop/programme
Workshop participants will not only have the chance to network and discuss at the workshop coffee break together with the participants of the „10th International Conference on Bio-based Materials“, at the end of the workshop they will also have the possibility to get to know other promising technologies and innovative ideas at the presentations for and the election of the “Bio-based Material of the Year 2017“.
Speakers at the workshop will be: Maria Dani (Novamont), Raj Chinthapalli (nova-Institute), Alessandro Gallazzi (Mater Biotech), Filip Miketa (Mi-Plast), Sander van Loon (VLCI), Daniël Turkenburg (TNO together with Itaconix).
