ECOGEL CRONOS aims at the development of an ecological and innovative coating for composite parts which may be able to eliminate the styrene emissions from the workplace. Additionally, this type of coating will deliver improved production performance in terms of quality and dramatic reduction of associated operational costs which currently burden the progress of composite materials worldwide. The combination of new developments in efficiently heated tools, mould design and reinforced preforms with this ecological coating will provide an excellent platform to modernizing current composites manufacturing technologies.

SUSPENS will develop a holistic approach, from bio-sourced and recycled materials to faster and lesser energy demanding processes, to produce sustainable composite structural parts, ensuring their manufacturability from the design conceptualization.
VALUABLE will focus on the demonstration of a platform non-plant-based biomass valorisation process for the production of yeast oils as a viable substitute for fossil-based and plant-based products (such as palm oil) in applications such as cosmetics, adhesives and resins.
SIMPLI-DEMO, the Demonstration of Sonication and Microwave Processing of essential chemicals project, aims at strengthening the chemical process industry and in particular the specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries in its capacity to produce materials and chemicals in a sustainable and competitive way by moving from batch to continuous and modular production with flexibility being ensured by the application of alternative energy forms.
