Shared Research Center Biorizon has been working since the start in 2013 on research into bio-aromatics; commonly used chemical building blocks that until recently were made exclusively from fossil raw materials. The research is split into three directions or ‘horizons’: the production of bio-aromatics from sugars, lignin and biomass residual flows (via pyrolysis or gasification).
Promising results have now been achieved in all of these horizons. A number were discussed during the Biorizon Event. Ludo Diels: “Together with the chemical industry, we market aromatics that are functional, renewable, competitive and safe. And this is not just about drop-ins, but also about completely new functional molecules and oligomers that can not easily be made with traditional chemistry. ”
