December 15, 2022 |

In Spain, Aimplas said that the BIOMAC project is ready to offer its services to European small and medium enterprises, as well as Research Centers working in the field of bio-nanomaterials.

The company noted that BIOMAC is a Horizon 2020 project fostering an Open Innovation Test Bed (OITB), a collaborative ecosystem where technologies and solutions utilizing nano-enabled bio-based materials (NBMs) are upscaled and prepared for market applications.

The BIOMAC Ecosystem provides open access to its facilities (17 pilot lines) and complementary services, covering the whole value chain, from biomass fractionation and intermediate chemicals to final NBMs. Aimplas is in charge of pilot line number 11, a reactive extrusion (REX) pilot plant for polymerization of PLA and its copolymers and the production of PLA based nanocomposites.

The ambition of BIOMAC is to boost and sustain innovation in the field of European bio-economy industries, by reducing the time-to-market of novel nanotechnologies, the company added.
