2015-12-03 Spain: VALorization of LIgnocellulosic FRactions Re-covered from Agricultural Waste

 VALorization of LIgnocellulosic FRactions Re-covered from Agricultural Waste

Description of the project offered: 
Under the frame of the Bio Based Industries platform, CONTACTICA is leading together with RTD and Technological partners a project proposal addresed to the following topic:

CONTACTICA has led the preparation of several national and international project proposal having been successfully granted both under FP7 and Horizon 2020 (see ; From this experience we have established long term relationships with research and industrial partners. 

Vallfraw aims at the valorization of lignocellulosic by-products from different origins, enhacing the posibilities that biorefinery offer. 
The first step is the fractionation of the raw material in its three different components: Hemicellulose, Cellullose and Lignin, to extract high added value products searching to overcome current fossil fuel al-ternative.

Deadline of this call is next Decembre 3rd, for what we invite you to contact as soon as possible to:

Thank you very much.
Project proposer:   
Santiago Oc��n Barbas (Spain)
Partner role:  Project coordinator 
Partner organisation:  Consultancy
Call for proposal identifier:  H2020-BBI-PPP-2015-2-1

Description of the collaboration sought: 
The valorization lines for hemicellulose and cellulose is set to the production of building blocks and components for manufacturing bioplastics: 
- Hemicellulose -> Unsaturated Polyester resins (UPR)
- Cellulose -> Polyethylene Furanoate (PEF)

We look for industrial partners interested and capable of producing this polymers with industrial application, from building blocks provided by the consortium technological partners. 

The lignin fraction will be treated by electrospinning technology in order to produce advanced fibres to be the based of nonwoven materials. 
We look for industrial partners that produce these nonwovens, and are capable of integrating the lignin fibres. 
Expertise sought: Intellectual property rights, Business aspects, Innovation. Technology transfer, Materials technology, Industrial manufacture, 
Roles sought: Project participant,
