We want to thank Ronan who is finishing his work on P4SB at our partner's university in Surrey. Ronan made a successful contribution to the P4SB project by developing a consortium of E. coli and Pseudomonas for PET degradation.
You did great work, Ronan! Good luck for your career!
The plastics we cannot see also hurt the planet. When we think of plastic: bottles, containers, fabrics, toys and foams come to mind. But further, we dump large amounts of plastics into the environment and we are not even able to see them.
A Spanish popular science magazine "universo" for the blind people has published a short article about the P4SB project in which Auxi from our project partner CSIC was interviewed. The story about P4SB (in Spanish only) can be found on pages 10 to 12.
Mexican researchers obtained a particularly high biodedegradation on a polyether polyurethane foam with 65% of dry weight losses. To get this result, they incubated the foam with a fungal strain of C. tenuissimum for 21 days.
The Premier Trade show for all biobased Industries; 15.02-16.02.2017; Cologne, Germany
Exhibiting at BiobasedWorld is your chance to showcase your expertise in bioeconomy to an international audience.
We turn the spotlight on a multi-billion-dollar business with biobased products that are part of our daily lives as well as the supply chain that leads up to them. Look forward to the premier trade show that takes the bioeconomy from "Let's talk about it" to "let's do it".
