By | Chemistry, H2020 | No Comments

The Polymer and Advanced Materials research group of the Universitat Jaume I in Castelló (UJI) participates in a European project, financed by the Horizon 2020 programme, which investigates the design of biodegradable containers that may reduce the use of petroleum and greenhouse gas emissions, in addition to advancing towards finding a solution for avoiding plastic waste pollution. The UJI is part of the consortium of 21 members from 11 countries that develops, until the end of 2020, the YPACK initiative, led by the group directed by José María Lagarón from the Institute of Agrochemistry and Food Technology (IATA) of the Spanish Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (CSIC).

By | Natural Sciences | No Comments

The aim of the project was to identify the organic binding agents and the bacterial communities of the sites through omic technologies, that is, those that study the totality of genes, organisms or proteins. It has been done through metagenomic techniques (science that studies the DNA of microorganisms, directly extracted from environmental samples) and proteomics (the massive biochemical study of proteins).
