Chromatogeny: green chemistry to make paper water-repellent

A lab discovery leads to the industrialisation of a solvent-free technology allowing to make cellulose-based materials hydrophobic, using the breakthrough process of chromatogeny.

CAPWA - CAPture WAter – A new source of water

The CAPWA project has developed a novel water capture technology capable of extracting water molecules from water containing gas streams emitted from fossil fuel power plants or papermaking plants.

Environmentally friendly enhancement of cellulose based materials such as wood, textiles and paper products.

An alternative method for the enhancement of cellulose based material such as wood, textile and paper, Organoclick reduces energy and toxic chemical usage through the use of bio-based catalysts. The method, which is based on organocatalysis and click chemistry, is already implemented in several commercial products within different application areas.
