We would like to invite you to our last webinar titled: “Biorefineries from a chemical industry perspective”, on October 17, 2022.
The LIBERATE initiative, a project under the European Commission Horizon 2020 SPIRE (Sustainable Process Industry through Resources) programme will held a webinar entitled “Biorefineries from a chemical industry perspective” on October 17, 2022.
LIBERATE has developed a pilot plant for the conversion of low-cost lignin feedstock into high-value and sustainable chemicals as vanillin and mixed phenolic derivatives through an electrochemical process. The outputs of the pilot plant and other processes implemented at bench scale are being evaluated by five European chemical industries: Evonik, Oxiris, Chimar and Megara. In this webinar, these four chemical industries will review their activities in the replacement of fossil-based by bio-based chemicals
Evonik is one of the world’s leading specialty chemicals companies. Oxiris is a leading manufacturer of antioxidants with a state of the art manufacturing facility. Chimar is an innovating SME that develops chemical technology, R&D and engineering services for the industrial production of adhesives and chemicals, primarily for the manufacture of wood-based and composite panels. Megara is a diversified manufacturer and supplier of raw materials for industrial and architectural coatings as well as rosin-based and other synthetic resins for the paint, adhesive, paper and construction industry.
