QEW Engineered Rubber is research partner in the European DRIVE4EU project

DRIVE4EU project to natural rubber dandelions

 

Natural rubber is a sustainable material that is used for more than 40,000 products, among others natural rubber is applied in construction (adhesives, sealants), medicine (gloves, tubing) and transportation (matting, tyres) industries. Because of the high quality of natural rubber in many products it cannot be completely replaced by synthetic rubber.

 

DRIVE4EU - 'Dandelion Rubber and Inulin Valorization and Exploitation for Europe', a demonstration project, aims at the development of the production chain of natural rubber and inulin from Rubber dandelions. The objective of the project is to set up a new European chain for the production and processing of natural rubber. This will enable the EU to become less dependent on the import of natural rubber and at the same time to respond to the threat of a global rubber shortage.
