GREENER is an interdisciplinary project in which several knowledge institutions and companies based in Belgium and the Netherlands work together to contribute to a reduction of the microplastics pollution. By using biobased and biodegradable polymers as sustainable alternatives for polyacrylic acid, the amount of microplastics that enter the environment can be reduced. Only non-toxic, naturally occurring compounds are released upon degradation of these polymers.
The workshop will be informative and offer the opportunity to meet all project partners during several brainstorm sessions, about superabents, coatings, biomedical materials, processing via 3D-printing, electrospinning, etc.
Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory.
