1 SPIRE Brokerage Event December 16, 2013 Brussels Developing and piloting Furfural, HMF and Lignin platform technologies

2 We are building a unique public-private institute: Chemelot Institute of Science & Technology (InSciTe) 2 BUNDLING FORCES InSciTe bundles forces of four leading players in South Netherlands: an international Life Sciences and Materials Sciences company, a technical university, a general university with university medical center and a science park PHYSICAL NUCLEUS AT CHEMELOT InSciTe has a physical nucleus at Chemelot with unique, shared R&D infrastructure and other facilities that attract founding fathers and partners to the same location ACADEMIC & ENTREPRENEURIAL OPEN TO OTHER PARTNERS InSciTe performs internationally leading R&D in which top-academia and entrepreneurs work side by side – meeting and working at the physical nucleus Chemelot InSciTe is open to other parties and actively seeks partners – from academia and industry, and from all over the world – that complement the expertise of InSciTe and share its ambitions

3 The Biobased Building Block program  SPIRE 2 – 2014: Adaptable industrial processes allowing the use of renewables as flexible feedstock for chemical and energy applications  Program: three market-driven pathways and decision support: –Furfural platform: conversion from hemicellulose to furfural, as well as chemical conversion of furfural towards drop-in and new biobased building blocks –HMF platform: conversion from cellulose to HMF as well as multistep conversion of HMF towards drop-in and new biobased building blocks –Lignin platform: multistep conversion of lignin towards drop-in and new biobased building blocks  Process technological disciplines/ competences: - Catalytic-chemical processing - Thermo-chemical processing - Bio-chemical processing (excl. fermentation) 3

4 Activities – Expertise The biobased pilot facility is a full service infrastructure to pilot biobased technologies and processes, open to InSciTe partners and third parties

5 Current Partners….  DSM (NL)  Chemelot Campus BV (NL)  Eindhoven University of Technology (NL)  Maastricht University & Medical Centre (NL) 5

6 Looking for development Partners…. Projects in:  Furfural tree (also upward/ downward over value chain)  HMF tree (also upward/ downward over value chain)  Lignin tree (also upward/ downward over value chain) 6
