As a leading independent European research organization, VITO develops sustainable processes that provide answers for today’s industrial challenges.
When it comes to developing a biobased industry, VITO has a two-track approach.
We focus on creating new biobased value chains using biomass (lignin, insects, algae, organic waste….) and CO2 as raw materials for the production of chemical building blocks via fermentation and enzymatic processes but also via (bio)electrochemical processes.
On the other hand, we develop technologies for process intensification that enable a more efficient and profitable production. Key is the integration of separation technology within the conversion process to achieve a one step process.
As an R&D partner, VITO has a wide range of unique testing infrastructure and expertise, supports with specialized analytics and techno-economic assessment. We are in brief a one-stop-shop for your R&D challenges.
