Materials and new products


Obtaining materials and products based on the knowledge of the fundamentals of the production processes. Renewable materials, based on natural polymers, and products obtained from their depolymerization. Active compounds obtained from natural extracts, and their fractionation.

Our technology is available to develop final products up to the commercialization stage. Liquid and solid phase formulations, using technologies such as spray drying or emulsion formulation. Technologies that operate in moderate temperature conditions using CO2 in supercritical conditions.

Operation with pilot plants to obtain between 50 and 500 g. With TRL between 3 and 5.
