Stahl partners with CHAMPION project to replace conventional polymers

  6/30/2020 - Waalwijk, The Netherlands – Stahl will be one of the partners in a research and innovation action aiming to replace conventional polymers with novel bio-based polymers for their application in coatings, textiles, home care uses and structural adhesives, named CHAMPION (circular high-performance aza-Michael polymers as innovative materials originating from nature). Polymer-based products are essential to our modern lifestyle. CHAMPION, which will launch its activities for three and five years starting in June 2020, is geared towards making them better suited to modern expectations in terms of their sustainability credentials. The project has been awarded Horizon 2020 BBI JU funding, and includes 14 partners from six European countries coordinated by the University of York. Professor James Clark, coordinator of the CHAMPION project, said, “The current approaches to polymer production are not compatible with the EU’s circular economy and green ambitions; the CHAMPION project will develop suitable, even superior replacements.” The majority of conventional polymers are not fit for recycling and end up being incinerated or landfilled. Some of the chemicals used in their production may result in toxic emissions, depending on the end of life process they go through. These characteristics stand in contrast to the EU’s green credentials and its ambitions to create a circular economy. Novel CHAMPION bio-based polymers result from the aza-Michael addition reaction, and are expected to be suitable replacements for polymers used in resistant kitchen counter coatings, laundry detergents and other home care products, car interior surfaces and structural adhesives. Recovery, chemical recycling and organic recycling (with the option of controlled energy recovery) are the end-of-life options planned for the design of products using CHAMPION polymers. The CHAMPION project receives funding from the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement no. 887398.
