REDUCING THE C-FOOTPRINT: DOING MORE WITH LIGNIN
Sustainability and new special features of PUR foams
Lignin is the second most abundant biobased compound and nowadays, huge amounts of this natural resource are produced as a waste or low value by-product. "Doing more with lignin" is a Regional Dutch Consortium Project (integrated by Attero, Bio Treat Center, Chemelot InSciTe, INDRESMAT, Vertoro and Vito) aiming to produce CLO (Crude Lignin Oil) as a high value building block for chemical and plastic industries.
