Last month our project coordinator Cristiano Varrone from the Aalborg University organised a joint session with our colleagues from PRESERVE h2020 and Uppe-t Project in the framework of the plastic biorefinery and upcycling as part of the International Engineering PhD Summer School celebrated in August.

During this joint session, several groups of students developed several initiatives and proposals to face some of the challenges within the plastic industry. Find them below:


GROUP 1: The PLA Biorefinery – Jan, Marina, Thomas O., Ioana.


Group 2: From lignocellulosic biomass to a biodegradable rubber – Jin Gao, Katharina Steiner, Kuba Bomba, Salvador García Chumillas.


Group 3: Plastic Biorefinery – Mikhail, Passanun and Emil
