Research Organisation


As independent and customer-oriented research organisation, VITO provides innovative technological solutions as well as scientifically based advice and support in order to stimulate sustainable development and reinforce the economic and social fabric of Flanders. VITO provides Sustainable Chemistry as one of its five technology platforms. In this platform we focus on the biobased economy and on process intensification. A strong focus is given to the integration of all kinds of conversion processes (chemical, enzymatic, microbial, electrochemical) with separation processes (focus on membrane technology and development).
