March 2023 – Consortia on Bio sustainable materials in Italy established!
Groupe Curie and Italian manufacturer Collaborate on Sustainable Bio-Materials Production Facility
Groupe Curie is pleased to announce our collaboration with an Italian manufacturer, a leading producer of sustainable bio-materials for industrial use and the car industry. Together with the subsidiary BIOSYNTHETIX, we will be building a prototype of a Sustainable Bio-Materials Production Facility in Italy, which will be powered by green hydrogen and renewable energy. The facility will use an electrolyzer system to generate green hydrogen from renewable sources such as solar and wind energy. With 25 MW solar plant and 1 MW of wind-turbines, the facility will be able to produce several tons of green hydrogen per year, which will be used in the production process of sustainable bio-compounds.
Our team of engineers and scientists, in collaboration with the Italian fabric will work to optimize the production process to minimize waste and energy consumption. The prototype facility will also utilize cutting-edge technology in the production process, including high-pressure fermentation and bioreactors, to produce bio-plastics from organic waste materials.
The facility will be one of the first in Europe to produce bio-compounds in a truly sustainable way, using organic waste materials to produce eco-friendly, biodegradable bio-compounds with a low carbon footprint. The bio-compounds will be marketed to industrial customers and the car industry. Our goal is to create a prototype that is not only environmentally sustainable, but also economically viable. We believe that by leveraging our expertise and our commitment to sustainability, we can create a prototype that will be profitable and attractive to investors.
Once the prototype is established, we plan to replicate it in other locations, both in Italy and in other countries. Our aim is to create a network of sustainable bio-materials production facilities that will contribute to the development of a more sustainable and circular economy.
Overall, we are excited about this project and believe that it represents a unique opportunity to create a more sustainable future for ourselves and for future generations. The collaboration between the Italian fabric, BIOSYNTHETIX and Groupe Curie, and our commitment to building a prototype of a sustainable bio-materials production facility that can be replicated in other locations, represents a major step forward in our collective effort to combat climate change and promote sustainability.
