R&D projects

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 Russian 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. Read more about Mitas participation.
