Breu explicació del projecte / Brief explanation of your project
The overall objective of ECOFUNCO is to select, extract and functionalise molecules such as proteins, cutin, polysaccharides, polyphenols, carotenoids, and fatty acids from readily available, low-valorised biomass sources. This will be used to develop new bio-based coatings for application on two different substrates, specifically cellulosic and plastic based. This will deliver materials for food and personal hygiene use that will offer better performance than currently-available products, as well as delivering more sustainable end of life options.
