NOVAMONT is an Italian industrial company and worldwide leader in the sector of bioplastics and is involved in the development of biochemicals obtained through the integration of chemistry, the environment and agriculture. NOVAMONT promotes a bioeconomy model based not only on the efficient and sustainable use of renewable resources but also as a factor for regeneration of local areas. Research is the driving force of its industrial development and is constantly improving the performance and environmental profile of its products.

Novamont products are the result of innovative proprietary technologies, and provide environmentally sustainable solutions to minimise the risks of these products being dispersed in the ecosystem.

Within Rehap Project, NOVAMONT will mainly be involved in a Pilot scale validation of upstream and downstream technologies for 1,4 BDO production, through a fermentation process feeding by second generation sugars. The 1,4 BDO produced will be used in the development of Biobased PU adhesives for composites.
