GREEN CHEMISTRY and Sustainability
Our aim is to face different aspects of sustainability with our expertise in chemistry, biochemistry, industrial biotechnology, and material chemistry. We work for the development of efficient and environmentally compatible solutions for the innovative chemical industry, exploiting new processes to produce molecules and macromolecules of interest for the chemical, pharmaceutical, agro-food, and cosmetic sectors, also through the transformation of raw materials from renewable sources into a bio-refinery perspective. We fit the circular economy approach also by developing/formulating new materials and processes for biomass and polymer waste upcycling. We design functional materials to develop methods for decontamination from toxic chemicals and radiological contaminants and for the development of sustainable agriculture.
