LIGNICOAT presents at the 5th ICBBM

LIGNICOAT presented at the 5th International Conference on Bio-Based Building Materials (ICBBM) in Vienna, Austria. The conference from June 21st  to June 23rd brought together key players from the bio-based materials industry to discuss the latest happenings and trends.

Karolien Vanbroekhoven from VITO took the stage during the June 22nd session on “Innovative admixtures and alternative binders”.

The presentation, titled “Lignin and lignin depolymerization the way to biobased construction materials containing aromatic units,” highlighted lignin’s potential as a bio-based source of aromatics to replace fossil-based chemicals. In LIGNICOAT, VITO plans to bridge the gap from lab to scale, producing samples for development and validating economic potential. The focus was on using lignin’s inherent properties to enhance biobased content in polymers for applications like coatings and insulation in the construction sector.
