Provides is a research and innovation project (RIA) within the Biobased Industries Initiative. Provides, officially started on 1 July 2015, aims to develop Deep Eutectic Solvents (DESs) to be used in a radically new, sustainable and techno-economically feasible pulping technology for wood and agro-based lignocellulose raw materials. DESs are a new class of natural solvents which have the unique ability to dissolve and thus mildly fractionate lignin, hemicellulose and cellulose at low temperature and atmospheric pressure for further processing into high added value materials and chemicals.

This helps the European Pulp and Paper industry to achieve the low-carbon bio-economy.
