The demand for biobased polymers is growing fast. According to the current state of the art, metal-containing catalysts are needed to improve the polymerisation rate of lactones, posing a hazard to health and the environment. InnoREX will develop a novel reactor concept using alternative energies for the continuous, highly precise, metal-free polymerisation of PLA.
Development of the PLA productivity/Quality
Industrialization of the PLA
The InnoREX consortium consists of 5 RTD partners, 6 industrial partners and an association. All the partners share a common business strategy. They will participate actively in the project management and decision making structure to ensure that the involved industrial sectors are the main beneficiaries of the project’s results.
