To succeed in the ambitious objective of achieving a climate-neutral EU by 2050 the nano-enabled bio-based materials sector shall respond to some specific risks in the short term. BIONANOPOLYS will address the following risks and challenges in order to strengthen the circularity of nano-enabled bio-based materials in the economy:
› Acceptance of new technology by the market.
› Seasonal sustainability of feedstocks.
› Price competition and market.
› Other risks: The existing legislation is costly in particular for small companies. For example, nano-ecotoxicology related to the use of nano-enabled materials in industry and/or food contact.
Considering these challenges, BIONONAPOLYS Open Innovation Test Bed will improve technologies, processes, considering different feedstock. BIONANOPOLYS offers:
› PILOT LINES: Cutting edge technology upgraded at TRL 7 with the objetive to produce nanoenabled biobased materials with multifunctional properties to be dispersed in cellulose and polymeric matrices assuring the best dispersion and the robustness of the final properties. Developed materials will be validated in application such as packaging, cosmetic, medical, foam, nonwoven, coating, 3D printing, textiles and cellulose-paper.
› PRIMARY RAW MATERIALS FROM DIFFERENT FEEDSTOCKS: BIONANOPOLYS will use the most relevant feedstock in Europe to obtain bio-based nano-enabled composites.
› HIGH VOLUME APPLICATIONS: BIONANOPOLYS offer solutions for more than the 50% of the applications that are currently using bio-based materials.
› COMPLEMENTARY SERVICES: BIONANOPOLYS will offer to the industry a wide variety of services for the market uptake of a new bio-based nano-enabled products, such as safety protocols for bio-based nano-enabled materials, training for staff specialization, standardisation, business modelling, access to follow-on finance or IPR protection as a crucial mean of ensuring the capitalisation on the investments made by our stakeholders and other investors.
