Main Research Lines / Participation in SusPlast:

  • Enzymatic degradation of plastics (including PE, PET and epoxy resins, thermosets, composites)
  • Production of bioplastics and/or the enzymatic synthesis of plastics from renewable sources (PEFs from biomass). In all these projects, its
  • The main goals are always the design of more efficient enzymes through directed evolution approaches
