On the 20th and 21st of September 2017, P4SB held its 5th General Assembly in Strasbourg. During this highly successful meeting, the attending participants defined the project's goals for the next 18 months.
The General Assembly had all of the project partners in attendance, with the exception of BacMine. Many thanks go to everyone involved for an enjoyable, productive, well-organized meeting in a great location, and especially to SOPREMA for so kindly hosting the event in their rooms.
Niall Beagan gives poster presentation at 9th European Symposium on Biopolymers
At this year's European Symposium on Biopolymers (ESBP 2017), the P4SB Project was well-represented: Not only attended CSIS the event in Tolouse this July, but the UCD Dublin, too, had Niall Beagan in attendance, who presented a poster on behalf of himself and his colleages at UCD.
The poster focused on 'The conversion of polyethyleneterephthalate (PET) monomers into polyhydroxyalkanoate', and can be seen here!
Prof. Lars Blank from RWTH Aachen University has been interviewed by WIRED, an American magazine, published in print and online editions, that focuses on how emerging technologies affect culture, the economy, and politics about the degradation of plastic by bacteria and caterpillars.
