BIOMAT is a highly innovative 4-year European Project aiming to establish an Open Innovation Test Bed (BIOMAT-TB) for providing services to a wide range of European industries and SMEs in order to accelerate and facilitate the uptake of innovation in nano-enabled bio-based cellular materials.
BIOMAT consortium has identified a large demand for nano-enabled bio-PUR foams with very large markets. Thus, the BIOMAT project selected five of these targeted markets for proof of concept: Building, Construction, Automotive, and Furniture & Bedding.
Thus, BIOMAT will develop a set of multidisciplinary technologies to produce biobased polyurethane foams, including the production of high-performance nano-fillers, adhesives, or bio-polyols that will be complemented with processes for inline monitoring, digital twin pilots, nanosafety, and characterization methodologies. Furthermore, different relevant services such as business plans, LCC and LCA studies, and funds raising will also be provided at fair conditions and cost.
