A new Industrial Strategy for Europe
The “European Green Deal” is causing a rapid rethink in the handling, use and production of sustainable materials.
INN-PRESSME, funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 framework programme, is developing materials and solutions for industry to replace fossil resources with sustainable, efficient, and cost-competitive bio-based materials. Through a 360 degrees perspective and the participation of 27 partners from 9 countries, the project’s results should ensure a massive change in the handling of bio-based raw materials in the packaging, energy, transport, and end consumer sectors after the project’s four-year implementation.
Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB)
An Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) is a set of entities, providing common access to physical facilities, capabilities and services required for the development, testing and upscaling of nanotechnology and advanced materials in industrial environments.
INN-PRESSME will develop state of the art bio-based materials
The use of bio-based materials – made from biological sources, such as plants – as sustainable alternatives to fossil-based counterparts is growing in various industries, including packaging, transport, and consumer goods. These bio-based materials include both biodegradable and nonbiodegradable polymers.
The Bio-based polymers sector is continuously growing. Plants are an important bio-based feedstock and one of the main “factories” for technical materials.
16 State of the art Pilot-lines
The INN-PRESSME OITB is backed by a network of 16 Pilot-lines established across Europe (ES, FR, FL, SE, DE, PL) integrated in a complete development chain from feedstock conversion to processing of nano-enabled bio-bases materials.
The Pilot-Lines will be upgraded during the project with process monitoring and functionalities together with online quality control. All Pilot-Lines provide materials composition, behaviour or performance characterization support to SMEs.
