Please register for Biorizon’s 7th Annual Event on Bio-Aromatics: 3 December. Over the past years, this event has developed itself into a ‘must visit’ event for anyone who’s interested in renewable aromatics. Last edition attracted 156 participants from 14 countries that engaged in 180 matchmaking sessions and valued the event with an 8.3. Due to COVID-19 we decided to host this year’s event online. By popular demand, we will still arrange virtual matchmaking sessions that can be scheduled as from now.
Major industrial players, small to medium‑sized enterprises, and research and technology organisations from all over the world will join us online to discuss the latest progress in the field of bio-aromatics and to elaborate on opportunities to accelerate biobased business together.
Currently, we are finalizing the program of our plenary 1:30h webinar. It promises to be an interesting, interactive and energetic virtual event. Because we know our community values the matchmaking part where they can meet representatives of the entire bio-aromatic value chain from all over the world, we decided to give you the opportunity to register to the event already and plan virtual matchmaking sessions. We’re looking forward to meeting you online.
Biorizon: The profitable way to biobased aromatics
Biorizon is the most advanced and valued research program on bio-aromatics worldwide. Shared Research Center Biorizon, an initiative of TNO and VITO, has been co-creating technologies for the production of bio-aromatics at the Green Chemistry Campus in Bergen op Zoom since 2013. Together with industrial partners, Biorizon creates and develops innovative chemical processes for the production of renewable aromatics from residual biomass.
Aromatics are important building blocks for the chemical industry: no less than 40% of chemicals are aromatic, and they bring essential functionalities such as durability and thermal and UV stability to products like plastics, resins and coatings. Bio-aromatics provide new functionalities and an impactful and green alternative for current petrochemical products that are difficult to re-use or recycle, including paints, adhesives and lubricants. Our aim is to enable commercial production of bio-aromatic building blocks by 2025.
