On October 4th, 2021, several companies, public and private knowledge institutions will organise the workshop GREENER. The event takes place online via Zoom from 1 PM to 5 PM. During the workshop, the project partners will present the interdisciplinary project GREENER and you will have the opportunity to meet all project partners during several brainstorm sessions.
In the GREENER project, several knowledge institutions and companies based in Belgium and the Netherlands work together to contribute to a reduction of the microplastics pollution. Within GREENER, biobased and biodegradable polymers are investigated as sustainable alternatives for the widespread and water-soluble polymer polyacrylic acid. In this way, the amount of microplastics that enter our environment can be reduced and only non-toxic naturally occurring compounds are released upon degradation of these polymers. Next to development of these polymers, they will also be valorised in a plethora of applications, ranging from superabsorbent materials for construction and healthcare to biomedical materials (tissue regeneration, 3D printing of patient-specific implants), cosmetics and coating applications.
