The automotive industry is constantly looking for new materials in order to reduce the vehicle weight and comply with legislation while Buildings consume large amounts of resources to construct and operate. Europe’s construction and automotive industries are seen as having strong potential when it comes to implementing the EU’s Bio economy for Europe action plan.
The ReInvent project aims to deliver novel bio based rigid moulded and spraying insulation foam systems for the construction industry and novel bio based soft and semi-rigid foams for the automotive industry.
The products derived in the ReInvent project will be validated for their enhanced properties, sustainability and low cost, and compared to currently available petroleum- and bio-based counterparts. To enhance the sustainability of these products and materials, new energy and cost-efficient recycling technologies will be developed.
This project has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 792049”
