Ilsa start biomass characterizations
Life biopol project is entirely focused on the re-use of agro-industial and leather by-products.
Ilsa has selected the following raw materials for biopolymer syntheses:
- Plant derived matrices: leguminous crop, cereals, sugar crane and sugar beet
- Animal derived matrices: hides and skins from tannery (wet blue)
Vegetable biomasses are suitable sources of compounds of the carbohydrated family. While animal derived biomasses are known to have a high content in essential amino acids. For the first analytical screening and characterization, the selected raw materials we five:
- four raw materals from soybean
- one raw material from corn
The biomass characterization will be performed using the official anatytical fertilizers methods according to the Itilian regulation (D.Lgs.75/2010) or other specific methods.
