HyGear has become a member of the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC). The consortium is committed to invest in collaborative research, development and demonstration of bio-based technologies to come to a sustainable bioeconomy in Europe.
The Bio-based Industries consortium is a Public Private Partnership (PPP) in the form of a Joint Technology Initiative (JTI) initiated by the European Commission to reach the Horizon 2020 goals. The PPP is an instrument to support industrial research and innovation, to overcome the innovation ‘valley of death’, the path from research to the marketplace. It encourages partnership with the private sector to fund and bring together the resources needed to address the challenges involved in commercializing major society-changing new technologies. Currently, the consortium brings together more than 60 European large and small companies, clusters and organisations across technology, industry, agriculture and forestry.
HyGear will contribute to the work programme of BIC by offering its expertise in on-site (V)PSA technology, its expertise in gas cleaning-, upgrading and conversion and its knowledge in energy efficient processes.
