CETIM colabora con el proyecto “Future: Fast Forward” para convertir a España en un hub del vehículo eléctrico en Europa

Led by the Volkswagen Group and SEAT S.A., the project is made up of 62 companies, 61% of them SMEs, from 11 autonomous communities.

It’s the largest business grouping in the history of the automotive industry in Spain.

CETIM and its partner ENSO INNOVATION will analyze different technologies for the recovery of high-value metals from used automotive components within the framework of one of the primary projects of PERTE VEC F3, called RELOAD.

The aim of this research, led from Galicia, is to reduce dependence on imports of high-value materials and to promote a sustainable, circular industrial model with a smaller environmental footprint.

The LIGNOPRIZED and REDEFINE projects, both focused on obtaining high added value products from lignin, have been successfully completed.

LIGNOPRIZED has successfully introduced modified lignin into applications as diverse as concrete additives, pipes or textile additives, improving their conventional characteristics.

REDEFINE has succeeded in encapsulating fragrances and developing bio-surfactants with degreasing properties.

La biosolución LIFE REFOREST alcanza hasta el 80% de eficacia para reducir la erosión de suelos quemados por incendios

As it is a prefabricated system, it can be implemented more quickly than conventional systems.

Based on the three pilots installed in southern Galicia and central Portugal, a complete transferability and replicability plan has been developed for other European areas.

These conclusions were presented today during the European conference on forestry strategy organised by CETIM to close four years of R&D&I research applied in the framework of LIFE REFOREST.

CETIM Technological Centre has developed a dozen industrial applications from wood by-products for elements as varied as foam for car seats, cleaning products or Li-ion batteries.

In direct collaboration with fifty companies, it has been offering advanced solutions in circular economy for a decade through biorefinery models and R&D&i from lignin, cellulose or hemicellulose, generating more than €40M of investment.

The “green asphalt” devised by CETIM, additive with nanocellulose, won last November the 1st Innovative Materials Contest of the GAIN (Galician Innovation Agency) of the Xunta de Galicia.
