The 12th edition of the annual European Bioplastics Conference will showcase just how biopolymers are ‘Making the Difference’ in driving innovations forward for more sustainability, resource efficiency, and functionality.
This week, the 6th International Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable polymers (BIOPOL 2017) took place in Mons, Belgium. he team at the University of Alicante presented several works on PLA and gelatin based multifunctional nanobiocomposites, along with their progress in other European projects (e.g. the valorization of mushroom waste streams into functional additives and polymers, FUNGUSCHAIN project).
As scientific manager in the Barbara project, the principal investigator in the partnership at KTH, Prof. Vilaplana, along with Dr. Balazs Imre (KTH, Sweden) were this week at the 6th Conference on Biobased and Biodegradable Polymers (BIOPOL 2017) in Mons, Belgium. Dr. Imre succesfully presented a poster summarizing the tasks that the Swedish Royal Institute of Technology will accomplish within the time frame of the project, along with their starting results.
SPIRIT Slovenia and the Ministry of economic development and technology organize the Innovation day 2017, presenting opportunities and possibilities within a circular economy offers – from waste over different materials and technologies to various applications (advanced materials, alternative sources, advanced production technologies, nanotechnology and biotechnology) and more.
