BIODEST (UE / H2020)

The project contributes to preserving the environment by synthesising and formulating bio-sourced and biodegradable polyesters (or co-polyesters) that can replace traditional plastics (e.g. plastic bags, water bottles, etc.) as well as plastics in the biomedical field (drug dispensing devices and packaging). This project promotes sustainable chemistry (or green chemistry), an emerging field that supports the design of reactions and processes in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.
