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.
BioSFerA is a research project, funded by the Horizon program, proposing an innovative model based on the combination of two thermochemical-biochemical processes for the production of advanced biofuels for the aviation and maritime industries. One of the main results of the project will be the realisation of a pilot process with the two above mentioned units for the gasification and fermentation processes and the final production of 2 barrels of advanced biofuels from second generation, together with cost-effective analysis and market introduction.
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.
PYROCO2 project will demonstrate the scalability and economic viability of carbon capture and utilization (CCU) using the innovative PYROCO2 bioprocess. Aim is to produce climate-positive acetone out of industrial CO2 and renewable electricity derived hydrogen, as a platform for manufacturing chemicals and materials with a negative carbon footprint. The demonstrator plant to be built in the project will have a capacity of using 10,000 tonnes per year of industrial CO2 as a raw material, equivalent to the annual CO2 emissions of 2,200 conventional cars.
