Project BIORES

Fecha de inicio: 16 Oct 2019 Fecha de finalización prevista: 20 May 2020

The aim of the project is to carry out research in order to develop more sustainable wood coatings, with a high renewable origin, as well as to investigate the substitution of toxic raw materials used during the synthesis and/or development of wood coating formulations.

Expected results:


Definition of specific chemical routes of interest for the synthesis of NIPU-type resins with high renewable content, taking into account their transfer potential on an industrial scale, definition of experimental variables of the NIPU synthesis process to be analysed and fine-tuning of the process on a laboratory scale.


Obtaining cyclic carbonates from renewable sources and understanding the optimal experimental conditions for obtaining them, as well as the final properties that characterise them.


Synthesis of NIPU-type resins with high renewable content and knowledge of the relationship between the variables of the synthesis process and the chemistry of the NIPU-type resin obtained in the final properties of the latter.


Optimisation of the formulation of wood coatings from NIPU-type resins with high renewable content.


Knowledge of the physical and mechanical properties of NIPU type wood finishes; coatings already applied.


Definition of biological systems, mainly enzymes of the oxidoreductase family, with promising oxidative capacities for their application as biosecants in alkyd-type wood coatings.


Knowledge of the curing process of alkyd resins, commonly used as a finishing product in the furniture and wood sector, by means of an oxidation process catalysed by enzymes of the oxidoreductase type.


Contribution to improving the sustainability of materials commonly used in the furniture and wood sector by addressing the search for alternative raw materials to fossil sources.


Strengthening of the technical capabilities of CETEM’s Materials R&D&I area through the acquisition of knowledge related to the synthesis technology of alkyd resins with high renewable content as a potential alternative to conventional coatings for wood.
