Integration of efficient downstreaM PRocessEs for Sugars and Sugar alcohols

Project description

Producing chemicals through sustainable raw materials

Industry is changing its thinking, moving away from finite resources towards sustainable production that conserves resources. The EU-funded project IMPRESS is accelerating this transition by working on a novel biorefinery concept, which allows the conversion of plant-based non-food materials into important base chemicals. The process involves the use of liquid chromatography purification technology, including a very efficient continuous separation technology. If successful, this never-before-seen kind of biorefinery integrating disruptive upstream and downstream technologies will contribute to a significant decrease in greenhouse gas emissions (20 %), and capital and operational expenditure (20 %).
