VITO (BE) - Flemish Institute for Technological Research, a leading EU research and technology organisation will coordinate the project. Through their pilot plant, VITO will ensure the depolymerisation of lignin, the fractionation and the supply of biobased alternatives for BPA to Solvay.
APESA (FR) - a technological centre specialised in environmental assessment - will be in charge of monitoring the different impacts of the project.
CIMV (FR) - a SME with more than 20 years of experience in lignin valorisation - will provide its expertise in lignin reactivity and will produce organosolv lignin.
HP composites (IT)- a manufacturer of composites components for several markets - will integrate the new epoxy resins in composites for both aesthetic and structural car parts. Their role in the project will range from design to final homologation of the car components
Dissemination and valorization of the results will be performed by Polymeris (FR), a cluster with a large EU network in the field of polymers and composites for various industrial sectors.
SOLVAY (UK) - a global manufacturer of materials and chemicals is a key producer of epoxy resins in Europe - will produce in operational environment the lignin-based epoxy resins.
CRF (IT) - a research and innovation centre of Stellantis - will demonstrate the feasibility of these car components
Westlake Epoxy (NL) - production and marketing of epoxy resins for more than 50 years. They will manage the upscale of the epoxy resin production within the project
