New solutions for recycling thermoplastics

Plastic waste is one of the major threats to our ecosystems and the current end-of-life given to plastics negatively affects the environment. Circular economy is about to optimally manage waste in order to create an effective after-use plastic economy as a main strategy to promote recycling rates of plastics and to avoid further plastic littering [...]

Evaluating potential enzyme candidates for degradation of specific thermoset composites

Within the BIZENTE project, TU Delft is responsible to evaluate the activity of enzymes on low molecular-weight model compounds of representive thermoset composites. The model compounds should comprise the same main structural elements of the target polymers in order to understand how the enzymes could degrade the respective polymer. The chemical structures of the intially [...]

Studying the potential of ligninolytic enzymes in the degradation of complex thermoset composites

From the beginning of BIZENTE, partner EvoEnzyme has been studying the potential of ligninolytic enzymes in the degradation of complex thermoset composites. With the aim of customizing these enzymes (by protein engineering) and adapt them to industrial settings, EvoEnzyme started testing their activity in the degradation of soluble model molecules based on the structure of [...]

BIZENTE gathers requirements and industrial specifications of composites from a variety of sectors

Due to unique characteristics such as their high strength-to-weight ratio (enabling light-weighting) and long durability, thermoset based composite materials provide significant advantages over conventional materials such as steel or aluminium. This makes them very attractive for a growing number of applications across sectors, ranging from aerospace and automotive to construction, railway, energy, and sports. The [...]

Chemical Modification of resins to enhance materials biodegradability

Within the research activities of BIZENTE are those related to customisation and development of enzymes and resins at lab level. In this respect, the consortium has been working on the chemical modification of resins to enhance materials biodegradability. Below we offer a summary of the main findings of this work. Unlike thermoplastic for which effective [...]
