About the project
The ReSolute project’s overall objective is to create a first of its kind industrial plant and downstream value chain for the adoption of 99% pure Cyrene™ – a non-toxic solvent made from certified, renewable, waste cellulosic biomass, which is a high performing alternative to NMP, DMF and DMAc. The plant will be sited in the Grand-Est Region (France) and will scale-up the current Cyrene™ production process to achieve 1,000 metric tons of output per year.
ReSolute brings together 11 key actors from 6 European countries representing the entire value chain, from feedstock to market uptake. The project will be carried out over 36 months, from October 2020 to September 2023, with an overall budget of € 23M including €11.6 M funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC).
