Resins

Gum resin is a natural raw material that plays an important role in the bio-economy due to its multiple applications, but in the decade of the 1990s, European production almost stopped and the EU is highly dependent on imports of gum resin and its derivatives. Recently, a change in the global market situation allowed for a revival of resin production in the Iberian Peninsula but here is still much untapped potential in the Mediterranean. The focus of the iNET of Resins is to explore the existing research and innovation knowledge and the best practices across European gum resin value chain in order to deal with the main challenges that the sector is facing.

Objectives of this iNet:

  1. Converting the forests of the Mediterranean arc into a natural resin production system to supply the local industry.
  2. To generate stable and quality employment in the rural areas of the Mediterranean region through of the resin extraction activity.
  3. To commercially and technologically valorize and promote the natural resin produced in the Mediterranean arc forests as a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable resource 

 

LE PROPOS

Le projet INCREDIBLE vise à montrer comment les produits forestiers non ligneux (PFNL) peuvent jouer un rôle important dans le soutien à la gestion durable des forêts et au développement rural, en créant des réseaux pour partager et échanger des connaissances et des compétences. INCREDIBLE (dont l’acronyme signifie “ réseaux d’innovation du liège, des résines et des produits comestibles dans le bassin méditerranéen» encourage la collaboration intersectorielle et l’innovation, afin de mettre en valeur la valeur et le potentiel des PFNL dans les régions méditerranéennes.

Funding

Le projet 'Innovation Networks of Cork, Resin, and Edibles in the Mediterranean basin' (INCREDIBLE) a reçu des fonds du programme Horizon 2020 de la Commission Européenne sous le grant agreement N°774632
