Today there is a wide range of results and demonstrations of biobased solutions that are produced in lab scale, and that show large potential. However, technical processes for realization of these are often lacking, as are funding for process development. Simultaneously, market actors are needed to take an active role in this development to speed up the commercialization of the research results.
New products and materials demand new processes. We want to support development of enabling process steps in this call. These are expected to unlock new possibilities for:
- Use of raw material and energy
- Manufacturing of new materials and chemicals
- Manufacturing of materials and chemicals with superior properties
- New ways to utilize existing or new biobased streams, including issues on circularity, sustainability and customer needs
The purpose of this thematic call is to offer an opportunity to companies and research organization to jointly develop process steps that one way or another are critical for commercial manufacturing of biobased chemicals and materials with large market potential. The goal is upscaling of exciting solutions from TRL 3-4 to TRL 5-7, thus taking them from lab scale to pilot or demo.
