We focus on ten societal areas.
TNO cooperates with companies, the public sector and other organisations, to apply our knowledge and expertise with and for others.
We develop knowledge not for its own sake, but for practical application.
TNO offers you the chance to do groundbreaking work and help customers and society with innovative, practical and smart solutions.
On TNO Insights you can read in-depth interviews and articles. Get inspired by TNO’s innovations!
In Biorizon TNO, VITO and ECN are developing technologies for the production of functionalised bio-aromatics and BTX.
At the annual event, large companies, small and medium-sized enterprises and research institutions from across Europe will discuss the latest developments.
All the chain partners will be in attendance: from companies making raw materials from biomass, such as sugars, lignin or heterogeneous waste streams, to chemical companies using aromatic compounds in their products, such as coatings, lubricants and plastics. The organisers are particularly proud to have the cooperation of keynote speaker Dr Guido Naberfeld, Senior Vice President of Covestro. Dr Naberfeld will explain why the emergence of bio-aromatics is so important to the chemical industry, and for Covestro in particular.
In addition, the participants will see presentations on the latest research results, such as the upscaling of the TNO Continuous Flow Diels-Alder Skid: a demonstrator that produces bio-aromatics from furfural. There will also be bilateral ‘matchmaking sessions’ in which participants of the Biorizon Annual Event can discuss the options for (further) cooperation and upscaling. And, of course, there will be plenty of opportunity to talk to companies, stakeholders and researchers.
All the companies and knowledge organisations participating in Biorizon are personally invited. Perhaps you have not received an invitation but are interested in the developments and in possible cooperation? If so, please register stating why you are keen to attend! The number of parties cooperating in Biorizon is ever growing. We look forward to meeting you too.
