Sustainable biobased products for the construction industry
NewWave is a Horizon Europe funded research project which will contribute to building a circular economy by introducing sustainable raw materials in 4 manufacturing lines, replacing toxic chemicals, and lowering the environmental footprint of the products.
The innovative approach of NewWave is to apply Thermo-Chemical Fractionation (TCF) to unlock and fractionate residual biomass. TCF combines fast pyrolysis of the biomass with subsequent liquid-liquid extraction of the obtained fast pyrolysis bio-oil (FPBO), keeping the key chemical functionalities in separate, depolymerized fractions.
