Project Proposal

The call HORIZON-JU-CBE-2023-R-02 has been scheduled to close, so this opportunity is no longer current.

The University of Bologna, 1st Italian University in the Bioeconomy sector and 4th in Europe, is interested in contributing as a partner to a consortium in the JU-CBE-2023-R-04: Development of novel, high-performance bio-based polymers and co-polymers.

Expertise offered by UNIBO:

- Research group focuses on physical-chemical characterization of waste streams and residues, their management and treatment for potential valorization; environmental sustainability assessment of product-systems and industrial processes through a life cycle approach; material flow analysis applied to the characterization of anthropogenic cycle of resources, their reserves in use and to analyze future scenarios of material supply; analysis of the criticality of resources; environmental monitoring activities; analysis of the effects of environment and pollutants on traditional and modern materials for artistic, architectural and industrial applications.. Expertise in - Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of different bio-based products and comparison with fossil-based chemicals - Use of sustainability indicators to assess chemical processes at both industrial and early design stage - Assessing the environmental sustainability of waste management strategies and EoL technologies - Environmental footprint of products/processes/systems, such as carbon footprint and water footprint.
