WooBAdh project aims to study the feasibility of replacing formaldehyde in wood adhesives by natural components derived from wood or other vegetable matter. The consortium will develop new bioadhesives which are able to provide a holistic solution to the current emissions challenges facing the wood-based composites industry. The proposed solution is focused on different modifications of polyphenols, namely lignin and tannins, for producing bioadhesives that do not contain formaldehyde in its formulation, eliminating in this way the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC)

The PETzyme project's objective is to develop an enzymatic technology for recycling polyethylene terephthalate (PET) wastes using free and immobilized PET hydrolases. We aim to obtain biocatalysts with enhanced thermostability, and we will take advantage of all recent works where protein engineering was used to improve the stability and catalytic efficiency of these enzymes, thus increasing the competitiveness of this recycling process.
