Today the plastic processing industry and wood-based industry are facing major challenges related mainly to the scarcity of sustainable raw material caused by the overconsumption of fossil resources and also to the lack of breakthrough innovation in process biotechnology. The overreaching objective of the present project is to propose an innovative approach to alleviate these issues. To this end, novel vegetable oil UV-curable polymeric resins, whose bio-based components are derived from biomass side-streams, will be formulated and used for UV-curing coatings as well as for additive manufacturing (AM). This will help to enlarge the range of bio-based materials in sustainable coatings and 3D printing materials. This concept will be discussed in close collaboration of the Latvian and German participants at LV-GE meetings.
