Cooperation and knowledge exchange with other EU-funded projects and initiatives is an important asset in VIVALDI project. The consortium is committed to develop synergies that can help tackling common issues and share best practices.
CATCO2NVERS is a Horizon 2020 project aiming to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from the biobased industry by developing five innovative and integrated technologies based on three catalytic processes (electrochemical, enzymatic, and thermochemical). The project’s goal is to transform waste-CO2 from two biobased industries into five added-value chemicals: glyoxylic acid, lactic acid, furan dicarboxylic methyl ester, cyclic carbonated fatty acid methyl esters, and bio-methanol, with application in the chemical, cosmetics, and plastic industries.
CO2SMOS project develops solutions to transform the carbon emissions generated from bioprocesses into different sustainable bioproducts: durable polymers, renewable biochemicals, and biodegradable materials. With these compounds, it is possible to produce greener end-products such as packaging, coatings, textiles, and materials for biomedical applications. CO2SMOS toolbox will help biobased industries to achieve zero or even negative carbon emissions as well as replace fossil-based chemicals with more sustainable ones.
