BIOMAT-biopolymeric materials

Koro de la Caba, from Biomat research group, has been appointed to the scientific committee of EUCHIS 2023. The 14th International Conference of the European Chitin Society (EUCHIS 2023) and the 15th International Conference on Chitin and Chitosan (15th ICCC) will be held in Siglufjörður, Iceland, from September 11-14, 2023. EUCHIS 2023 is open to abstracts covering the spectrum of chitin and chitosan research, including (but not limited to) research on chitin and chitosan production and modification, technological applications, nanotechnology, industrial, food, agricultural, biomedical, and other novel applications. Deadline for abstract submission can be found on the EUCHIS 2023 website.

The BIDEKO project consortium meets at BCMaterials to study the progress of the program. This project aims to create, through ecodesign, biodegradable and compostable batteries for precision agriculture and decentralized energy systems. Consequently, BIDEKO seeks to create a change in the current battery paradigm, moving from a single battery model for multiple uses to a tailor-made battery model. For this, from its initial conception, the requirements of the device that will feed the battery will be taken into account. And all this with a life cycle perspective based on the circular economy.

Koro de la Caba and Pedro Guerrero, Biomat researchers, ranked among Top 2% of world’s most-cited scientists. Stanford University (California, USA) has published the list 'Ranking of the World Scientists: World's Top 2 % Scientists', which identifies the most influential researchers in the world.

ICED hosted an online meeting with Prof. Koro de la Caba (Head of BIOMAT research group) and Dr. Pedro Guerrero, from the University of the Basque Country in Spain to discuss the potential for collaboration.

Progress in the development of biodegradable packaging. The Biomat group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and the company Yon Mikel Janariak are adapting the methodology for producing ready meals to the use of biodegradable packaging as a genuine alternative to plastic

The Biomat group of the UPV/EHU-University of the Basque Country and the company Domotek have produced personalised biomaterials using native collagen

Thanks to the progress made in producing biomaterials that can be processed by 3D printing developed by Biomat, and in acquiring and processing data for 3D printers carried out by Domotek, the biocompatibility of the products manufactured means that they can be used as tooling components or prostheses.
