Innovative and sustainable materials, processes and technologies for a GREENer and circular economy


GreenX3 is a multidisciplinary and innovative project designed to use chemical tools to address the current global environmental challenges. The research objectives will focus on: i) the study of greener materials including polymers, plastics, alternative feedstocks, natural substances and their environmental impact; ii) the development of novel environment-friendly industrial processes for isolation; iii) the recovery and production of these materials with key enabling technologies (KETs) designed to enhance resource management and product quality. The GreenX3 network will create a research and training environment supported by 16 teams (beneficiaries and associated partners) for the international, intersectoral and interdisciplinary training of 13 researchers equipped with multidisciplinary skills allowing them to work across disciplines, to gradually shape and lead to a greener and sustainable chemical industry within the Research & Development/Innovation framework. Six industrial pioneers offer the necessary skills to become the future ‘technology transfer’ experts thanks to the close and frequent exposure of the researchers to private sector and to KETs to significantly enhance their employability. Environmental and economical sustainability requires a multidisciplinary approach to fill the gap that is currently significantly limiting technology transfer from research to marketable innovation. The multidisciplinary expertise boosted by the presence of industrial partners, the main drivers of the scientific objectives to respond to a real gap in knowledge, with complementary knowledge, will offer a superior training opportunity. GreenX3 will contribute EU Green Deal by ensuring acquisition of the knowledge and skills needed to promote sustainable development through research and training for responsible production, sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources, reduced waste generation through prevention, reduction, recycling and reuse.
