Levulinic Acid to Adipic Acid (LA2AA)

The project team investigates the possibilities to make known building blocks for materials such as polyamides, which are used in a number of applications from car parts to nylon stockings.

The supply of fossil raw materials such as petroleum is being depleted. In order to secure the future availability of industrial materials, we already need to think now about renewable resources which could ensure alternative ways to access these materials. Levulinic acid, which can be made from biomass, could be a key building block for both fuel and material production.
