This project will involve the recovery of raw materials from bio-based waste. The focus may be on formulating new “degradation-on-demand” strategies for the hydrolysis of bio-based and biodegradable materials, such as polylactic acid, or investigating the recovery of natural catalysts, enzymes, and their subsequent employment in material processing. The aim is to create more sustainable catalysts and processes for a circular economy.
