Chemical recycling and new materials
Valorization of plastic materials coming from industrial wastes and end-use materials can be achieved through the reconversion into monomers, oligomers, intermediates, and new materials with increased value by using also biocatalysis and chemical catalysis.
SCITEC works on the production of biocatalysts for the depolymerization of plastic wastes and on the development of an efficient recycle of the enzymes in order to improve the process sustainability.
