by in Conferencias on 12 October, 2015

Biopol 2015 Conference was held in San Sebastian (Spain) on 6-9 October. The conference has the aim to provide a forum for researchers, students and companies from all over the world to exchange up-to-date ideas and opinions on current research and new applications of biopolymers and biocomposites.

The conference was orginized by Basque Country University, Perugia University, Alicante University and European Centre of Nanostructured Polymers (ENCP).

Important investigations from universities and companies were presented, focused in the industrial application of multiple biobased polymers. GAIRESA was there.

The opening conference of BIOPOL 2015 taked about an investigation carried out by GAIRESA in collaboration with French researchers and was held by Professor J.P. Pascault, from INSA (Lyon, France). The work entitled "EPOXY PRECURSORS BASED ON ISOSORBIDE: FOR WHICH APPLICATIONS IN THERMOSETTING MATERIALS?" explains the good properties of a new biobased epoxy resin and its industrial applications as a substitute of petrol based products.

With this participation in BIOPOL Conference, GAIRESA mantains its influence and close contact with the international scientific community, making our company a leader in innovation and research within our industrial sector of coatings, paints and resins for composites. Our aim is to give our costumers always the best and newest technological solutions.
