Research lines

The main research interests of BIOMAT group address various aspects of biodegradable materials from the extraction of raw materials to the end of life of products:

►   Valorization of by-products and wastes to obtain raw materials

►   Modification of biopolymers to improve functional properties

►   Characterization of polymeric materials

►   Optimization of processing conditions and methods to manufacture films and biocomposites

►   Composting as the end of life of bioplastics

►   Life cycle analysis of products and processes to assess environmental impact of biodegradable/compostable plastics

►   Development of cross-linked proteins for bioprinting and 3D printing in tissue engineering

►   Development of cross-linked protein bioinks for bioprinting and 3D printing of scaffolds, tissues and organs
