Project description

General purpose: The NIBCON project aims at the successful introduction of unique bio-based primary building blocks future Flemish and European chemical industries, such as the transition to a carbon neutral promote circular bioeconomy. The project is built around inventive lignocellulose-based RCF biorefining and downstream separation technology. NIBCON's ambition is to use this technology to further develop an integrated way with regard to environmental sustainability, technical scalability and economic feasibility.
