Bizente’s summer course lands at Teruel’s airport

After months of online sessions, Teruel Airport has hosted the practical session of the summer course of the BIZENTE project. Dozens of participants traveled to PLATA's facilities to attend a day of lectures and a visit to the airport hangars, where plots of land have been set up to carry out different aircraft recycling processes. [...]

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, [...]

The use of vitrimers in the BIZENTE project

In this project, SPECIFIC POLYMERS will notably be in charge of the chemical modification of thermoset resin composition to ease the enzymatic degradation of composite materials without affecting their mechanical properties. To do so, we will custom-designed building blocks containing enzymatically degradable moieties or functional groups easing such degradation mechanisms. In order to achieve this [...]

Towards enzymatic degradation of recalcitrant epoxy-polymers

Today’s society is based on synthetic polymers; practically every area of our daily life is permeated with polymers. Unfortunately, the first generations of polymeric materials surrounding us today have been designed for durability rather than recyclability and/or degradability. The very common poly vinyl products such as poly ethylene, poly propylene and poly styrene comprise hydrocarbon [...]

Teruel, a strategic enclave for the areospace industry

In the last decade, Teruel airport has become a worldwide known aeronautical hub in the aviation industry. Aircraft painting business will shortly be added to aircraft parking, maintenance and recycling services that are already available. The present of the airport is linked to these activities, to services provided by drones, to the training of professionals [...]
