KoM celebrated in Valencia (Spain)

The kick-off meeting of PERCAL project “Chemical building blocks from versatile MSW biorefinery” was held last 4th and 5th July 2017 in Valencia (Spain). The project is coordinated by IMECAL and has received funding from the Bio Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 745828. With a budget of 3.4 M€ and 3 years of duration, the objective of PERCAL project is to develop intermediate chemical products with huge industrial interest (bioethanol, lactic acid, succinic acid) at high yield and purity from the organic fraction of municipal solid waste (MSW). These products will be used as chemical building blocks to manufacture eco-friendly ethyl lactate, hot melt adhesives, biopolyester-polyols for the production of polyurethanes, as well as for the fabrication of biosurfactants from lipid and protein remaining fraction of biowaste. The international PERCAL consortium is composed of 12 organisations: IMECAL, AIMPLAS and CENER (Spain), Agricultural University of Athens (Greece),  ATB Potsdam and Covestro (Germany), Ghent University (Belgium), TBW Research (Austria), VISUM (Ireland), SOFTER Group (Italy), Hayat Kimya (Turkey) and Exergy (United Kingdom).
