COVID-19 impact on the LIPES project

Working restrictions due to the sanitary crisis led to a temporary halt of activities at some partners sites

Work carried out on process optimisation at TUB in Berlin (Germany) was temporarily halted due to the closure of laboratory activities.

So did work planed for the operation of the demo site at OLEON SAS in Venette (France).

Operations were also slowed down at DSM on the polymerisation process and evaluation of applications.

It's been estimated by project partners that this situation would cause a 4 month delay in reaching the stated objectives. 

An amendment will be submitted to the EU in order to take this into account.
