Project title: “Biomaterials synthesis for polyesters industry with applicability in the production of ballistic protection equipments”
Project type: National project
The overall objective of this project concern the design of new polymeric materials with three key functional requirements: non-toxic, biodegradable, and minimal impact on waste management. The concept of GREENBALEQUIP addresses the essential questions and challenges of moving toward a sustainable society in which bio-based feedstock, processes, and products are fundamental pillars of the economy. The project approaches not only the importance of preparing bio-polymeric materials and the technical issues related to this, but also the economics, infrastructure and policy surrounding the implementation of these biomaterials to the defense equipment’s industry, and the open market for further implementation to other polymers industry.
