The Bio4Cryo project will use synergistic approach presented in the figure to foster innovations and bolster industrial leadership.

The Bio4Cryo project aims to develop multi-layer polyurethane cryogenic insulation with a thermoreflective coating, using sustainable resources from agricultural & forest industry. The Bio4Cryo will focus on industrially feasible and up-scalable technologies while taking into account sustainability of developed products & technologies.

Biobased cryogenic insulation materials are innovation on global level. A big concern for Europe is dependence on fossil feedstock in chemical & energy production due to economic considerations but also due to broader perspective of sustainability.

The Bio4Cryo project aims to focus Europe's common efforts towards a sustainable, high value biobased economy using European origin biobased feedstock and to improve Europe's industrial competitiveness, sustainability and strengthen the industrial leadership.
