Nurel sales manager Mr. Carlos Gil and Dr. Lidia Garcia (TECNO) participated this week in the 12th edition of the annual European Bioplastics Conference among an impressive speaker line-up of more than 300 senior bioplastics decision makers from across the bioplastics value chain, policy bodies, NGOs, and brand owners (link to the Conference).
The Technology Centre AITIIP has been invited as coordinators of project Barbara to present the project in the open Conference Days "Verde que te quiero verde" (green, I like you green), held in Zaragoza, Spain. Our coordinator, Dr. Berta Gonzalvo, will join discussion amongst well-known national personalities, journalists and authorities, within the session "food and food waste" on thursday 30th November.
Project Barbara was featured in the most important newspaper in the region of Alicante, Spain (web version). With the original headline "the palette of colours is stretched", the news article focuses on the work performed by the two teams in the University of Alicante, the Nanobiopol Group and the Group of Vision and Colour. The latter one is in charge of creating new colours from the natural extracts provided by the former.
This week, the University of Alicante, Spain, has been in charge of hosting the first meeting of the consortium in the Barbara project after Kick-off. The event has gathered representatives from all partners involved in the project, who have travelled to Alicante to show and discuss the results obtained during these first months.
