National Stakeholders Event in Croatia – Bionanopolys
WHEN: 17th March 2022, 12:00 – 14:00 CET
WHERE: online – Meeting Link
On 17th of March 2022, Particula Group d.o.o. and Miscanthus d.o.o. will organize a joint Horizon 2020 BIONANOPOLYS and Horizon 2020 BIOMAC projects presentation for the Croatian stakeholders. The goal of the virtual event is to disseminate both projects among academic and business partners in the Republic of Croatia. The working language will be English, and more information about the projects is available on the official websites:

Bionanopolys unites European experts in this field to transform these bio-based materials to nano-scale and, moreover, develop an Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB) environment. The aim is to manufacture innovative bionanocomposites from sustainably sourced feedstocks in Europe as well as bio-based nano-products for packaging, textile, agriculture, cosmetics, pharma or food.
For this purpose, Bionanopolys will use high lignocellulosic feedstocks for the production of cellulose nanofibers, cellulose nanocrystals, nanolignin and metallic nanoparticles on the one hand. On the other hand, high sugar content feedstocks will serve for the production of building blocks, organic acids, PHA and active compounds to create nanocapsules.
