Ilsa identifies the plant and animal biomasses which will be base of the green biopolymers. In the first phase of the LIFE BIOPOL project, ILSA has identified plant biomasses (legumes, cereals, cane, and sugar beet) and animals (wet-blue shaving) that are suitable for the synthesis of biopolymers. After the preliminary phase of study and research, ILSA successfully achieved the pretreatment activities on agro-industrial and tanning by products, transforming them from waste to resource.
The by-products were treated by ILSA though the eco-sustainable process of enzymatic hydrolysis that allowed these substances to be used in biopolymers syntheses. The activities carried out by ILSA took into account plenty of factors regarding the sustainability including economic costs, availability of by-products on the market and the environmental impact of the identified processes. The next period is going to see ILSA commitment to industrializing these pretreatments.
LIFE BIOPOL is a project co-financed by European Union as part of the LIFE 2014-2020 program.
The project involves five public and private members: CODYECO, chemical company responsible for project coordination, DERCOSA and INPELSA tanneries, University Ca’ Foscari of Venice and ILSA a biotechnology company specializing in plant-nutrition products.
Isla start biomass characterizations (05/09/16)
Life biopol project is entirely focused on the re-use of agro-industial and leather by-products.
