BIO-TIC is a three year project, funded by the European Commission (FP7), aiming to identify the hurdles to industrial biotechnology and to develop solutions to overcome them, thereby unlocking the massive potential for this key technology in Europe.
CyclicCO2R aims to develop a continuous process that converts CO2 and bio-based renewables into high value-added products in a way that is sustainable and competitive with conventional fossil-based processes. The highly efficient integrated process will remove the dependency on fossil fuels and increase the energy efficiency such that it creates a reduction in CO2 emissions.
Enabling CO2 utilisation (European Climate KIC Flagship programme). Under the leadership of Bayer MaterialScience, the enCO2re programme will further broaden the approach for CO2 re-utilisation, connecting technology leaders as well as leading European universities and institutes in order to leverage a broad utilisation of CO2 as feedstock for chemical value chains.
Chemical Regions 4 Resource Efficiency (R4R)
Launched in November 2012 under the funded Research and Innovation Programme from the European Commission for a three years period, Chemical Regions for Resource Efficiency (R4R) is the project that will overcome the European fragmentation of ambitious and innovative regions. Through its methodology, R4R could lead the path to promising and positive impacts on resource efficiency.
