Coherent and unifying projects in the field of green chemistry

The portfolio revolves around green chemistry through the lifecycle of a product: from its design to the end of its life, and including its economic valuation. The axes of development identified are: BIOTISS (white biotechnology, that is the sustainable production of chemical substances), POLYTISS (bioplastics with controlled biodegradability), VALORISS (green chemistry at the service of very small enterprises and SMEs) and EXTRUDISS (reactive extrusion producing biomaterials, an environmentally friendly process).
