INN-PRESSME aims at developing and implementing a sustainable Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) to support European companies to scale up their nano-enabled biomaterials and processes from TRL 4-5 to 7. The project will focus on (nano)cellulose, bioplastics and natural fibres, combined with nanotechnology approaches to tailor biobased materials with properties and functionalities (barrier, antibacterial properties, improved corrosion or chemical resistance, etc.) that equal or outperform their fossil counterparts at competitive prices. INNPRESSME gathers 16 pilot lines, organized in routes and processes for feedstock conversion (PLA, PHA, fibre-based, cellulose-based), formulation and transformation and processing of bio-based material to high added value products.
INN-PRESSME is a joint collaborative network of 27 partners from 10 EU countries from North (FI, NOR, SWE, UK, BE), South (SP, IT, FR) and Central Europe (GE, PO) with the goal of creating an entity (Single Entry Point) for characterisation of nano-enabled biomaterials. ANSYS provides digitalization services for the OITB, specifically by implementing GRANTA MI, an enterprise materials information management system, accompanied by tools for assessing material and product sustainability.
