Biorizon: The profitable way to biobased aromatics

Aromatics are among the most important resources for the chemical industry. Currently virtually all aromatic building blocks are made from fossil oil.

Shared Research Center Biorizon, an initiative of TNO, VITO and ECN part of TNO, develops technologies to produce bio-aromatics derived from plant-based waste streams. This diminishes the dependence on fossil fuel, it lowers CO2-emissions and it provides the chemical industry a profitable and sustainable perspective.

We create renewable aromatics that outperform their fossil counterparts, in sustainability as well as functionality. Biorizon includes global leaders in the fields of feedstock, conversion, equipment and end-products as participants, as well as Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SME’s). We aim to make commercial production of bio-aromatics feasible for industrial partners by 2025. Please join our community!
