Monday, 17 June 2019 to Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Last 17th-19th June BARBARA project had a complete special session at the 7th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable polymers in Stockholm. We also had one stand with the last samples, the new BARBARA project leaflets, a box to let the contact revive more information, the newsletter subscription request, and a computer to make the subscription on-site if someone would like to do it. The BARBARA project stand was next to the Conference sponsors stands, next to the conference rooms, and in front of the coffee breaks. Many people have shown interest in the project and ask the staff for more information about the BARBARA project.
On Tuesday (18th), the BARBARA project-special session with the Keynote Lecture “Agro-food waste valorisation as a source of value biochemical towards a circular economy” by Maria del Carmen Garrigós Selva from de University of Alicante. Then the session continued with the following talks:
- Blaz Irme from KTH: “Organocatalytic esterification of corn starch for materials applications.”
- Luigi Torre from the University of Perugia: “Polyester-based biocomposites with enhanced properties by using natural additives obtained from agro-food wastes.”
- Lidia García form AITIIP: “Filament development for 3D printing based on BARBARA biocomposites.
Our staff gave the audience the new leaflets at the room entrance, and many people show their interest in the talks about the BARABRA project.
We want to thank all the local organising committee in KTH for their excellent job in making the conference and BARABRA project-special session running smoothly.
