Project EnzOx2 Aims to Obtain Chemical Compounds from Biomass

The Plastics Technology Centre Aimplas, Valencia, Spain, participates in the European project EnzOx2, coordinated by CSIC (Spanish National Research Council), whose objective is to develop new technologies to obtain chemical compounds from biomass.

During the three years of project, the centers and companies involved will develop new bio-chemical technologies based on the use of oxidative enzymes to obtain high added value products from biomass as an alternative to petrochemical-based raw materials. Specifically, it is expected to obtain 2, 5-furandicarboxylic acid. This is a building block, which plays a significant role in the polymerization process for the subsequent formulation of PEF derivative. This material presents high performances and it is a substitute for PET, with the advantage of coming from renewable sources.

Aimplas will be responsible for validating the industrial applications of the new compounds and its features as a monomer in the formulation of a PET substitutive material.
