Production of bioproducts from agrofood wastes
The objective of this project is to design and scale up at the industrial level a process to transform by-products of the agro-food industry sector into biodegradable plastics via biotechnological methods The main raw materials of the process will be high starch content flours, which are generated as a by-product of maize production industry, and which currently finds limited utility in animal feed. In the project, these substrates will be conditioned to be used as base for the culture of microorganisms able to produce, Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), polyester thermoplastics of bacterial origin. The PHA, produced inside microorganisms cells , are then subjected to processes of extraction and compounding to obtain degrees of biodegradable thermoplastics which can be processed by injection and extrusion for obtaining final applications in packaging and agriculture sectors.

Development of hybrid materials by intramolecular bonds without external adhesives. INTRAUNION
The INTRAUNION project will develop hybrid antivibration parts by intramolecular bonds without the use of adhesives, with the purpose of achieving the required specifications in the automotive industry. As a result, the adhesive deposition stage and the consequent emission of volatile organic compounds will be avoided so that business competitiveness will increase due to the removal of one step in the manufacturing process.
