We say goodbye to Bizente project! Join us at the Final Conference

After years of research, we say goodbye to our Bizente project.  The Consortium will  be presenting our results in a great event in Madrid, together with the RECOVER and ENZYCLE projects, with which we will combine experience and knowledge in the framework of "three bio-paths, one solution to plastics' end- of-life". The event will [...]

Lab-scale trials on the enzymatic biodegradation of resins-composites

BIZENTE project aims to propose a disruptive technology based on applying enzymes to degrade thermoset composite materials. The proposed technology has the potential to represent a bridge between the recycling of recalcitrant materials, which are still stored in landfills once they reach the end-of-life, and the use of biocatalysts with a low energy demand. To [...]

Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) : going into unknown territory

In connection with our involvement in the BIZENTE project issues around LCA on ”an unknown chemical substance” as the new BIO based Resins, that have been developed in the project. To conduct an LCA on such a newly developed chemical structure, it is necessary to identify the chemical substance and obtain information about its production, [...]
