DREAM Project

"To secure the future chemical industry, it is crucial to use new materials from renewable sources or waste. The DREAM project, funded by the European Innovation Council, focuses on turning waste and biomass streams coming from industries like pulp and paper into valuable products. Specifically, it plans to convert black liquor using innovative processes that combine reaction, catalysis and separation. The project emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, drawing insights from philosophy and social science to explore innovative approaches.

The consortium of the DREAM project is composed of 5 European partners:

• Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) – France; with 3 laboratories involved in the project: CP2M, IRCELYON and LRGP,

• National Laboratory of Energy and Geology (LNEG) – Portugal,

• National Institute of Chemistry (NIC) – Slovenia, • NEREUS – France,

• University of Twente (UTWENTE) – The Netherlands.


The DREAM project held its Kick Off Meeting on the 10th and 11th April in Lyon, France. It was an opportunity for consortium members to meet and discuss the project activities and objectives."
