The results will be achieved through close collaboration between research groups, companies and technological centers, while integrating communication and outreach to the general public. The TRIPyr consortium is made up of 7 partners from Nouvelle-Aquitaine, Aragón, Catalonia, Navarra and Occitanie: the Fundamental and Applied Heterochemistry Laboratory (Laboratoire Hétérochimie Fondamentale et Appliquée LHFA-CNRS / UT3 Paul Sabatier, Toulouse), the Catalan Chemical Research Institute (Institut Català d'Investigació Química, ICIQ, Tarragona), the European House of Innovative Processes (Maison Européenne des Procédés Innovants, MEPI, Toulouse), the Navarra Industry Association (Asociación de la Industria Navarra, AIN, Cordovilla), the Ecocene association (Pau), the PME Sapoval (Albi) and the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Homogeneous catalysis (Instituto de Síntesis Química y Catálisis Homogénea, CHESO , Zaragoza).
TRIPyr focuses on the transformation of industrial wastes present on both sides of the Pyrenees arising from the food industry (fatty waste) and the production of pesticides (lindane and its derivatives).
TRIPyr focuses on the improvement of the quality of the Trans-Pyrenean environment by transforming toxic industrial waste and its residues into products with high added value (polymers, fatty alcohols, fatty amines, etc.).
Sustainable development will be upheld in the execution of the project through circular chemistry strategies, green engineering and industrial eco-intelligence.
TRIPyr project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) through INTERREG-POCTEFA Spain-France-Andorra program. POCTEFA participates in the development of cross-border economic, social and environmental activities through common strategies in favour of sustainable territorial development.
