Apply ligninases to resolve end-of-life issues of thermoset composite plastics.
Duration: 01/05/2020 - 30/04/2024
Coordinator: Aitiip. 10 partners in total.
The target of the project is to develop a new technology based on the use of mutated enzymes from the family of the ligninases to carry out the degradation of thermostable composites based on epoxy, polyester and vinyl ester resins in order to resolve their current end-of-life issues. This technology will be mainly studied in plastic residues from aviation, transport and construction.
