Saudi Aramco to support research in Biobased Materials by AMIBM

We are pleased to announce that leading energy and chemicals company Saudi Aramco, is supporting a research programme on the Sustainability of Biobased Materials in a circular economy, at the Aachen-Maastricht Institute for Biobased Materials (AMIBM).

About AMIBM

AMIBM is a cross-border cooperation between Maastricht University, RWTH Aachen and Fraunhofer IME. AMIBM’s vision is to provide the missing link between fundamental and applied research and the market in the field of biobased materials. It aims to do this by changing the relationship between the production of biobased materials and the value chain.

The goal is to achieve this by developing an integrated, interdisciplinary research program. The program focusses on new strategies to produce advanced biobased materials in a sustainable and economical way. It also emphasizes the development of these novel materials into innovative products with high added value for technical and medical applications.
