PNO Chemistry participates as a partner in a wide variety of ambitious innovation projects funded by the European Union. We offer various services within these projects, such as stakeholder analyses, market analyses, business or exploitation plan development and dissemination strategies. Highlighted here are just a few of our projects. Want to know more? Feel free to contact us.

Developing an innovative technology to make the production of alumina, silica and calcium carbonate more environmentally friendly.
Turning industrial waste gases (mixed CO/CO₂ streams) from the steel industry into intermediates for polyurethane plastics.
Developing a new value chain for utilisation of surplus sugar beet biomass by converting glucose and fructose separately into value-added products.
Demonstrating that bio-oxidation processes can be cost-effectively used in other sectors than just the pharma sector, where prices of end products are higher.
Developing a process to recover rare earth elements (REEs) from waste streams, in order to provide Europe with a stable, circular value chain.
Reducing the 20 tonnes deficit in platinum-group materials (PGMs) by developing new processes for recovery and raw material production.
Strengthening EU strategy for critical raw materials through developing a European expert network across the value chain.
Developing processes to produce and recover hydrocarbons and (exo)polysaccharides from algae, as well as to further convert them into polymers.
Increasing the yield and reducing the cost of the enzyme production process, so that enzymes will become widely available for biogas production in Europe.
