The first project will focus on valorization of protein waste into biodegradable plastics. The successful candidate will have a strong profile in biopolymers, plastic processing and manufacturing technologies, biodegradable polymers and materials science in general.
The second project will focus on CO2 capture via protein-based porous materials. The successful candidate will be experienced with CO2 adsorption and separation processes, aerogels, porous materials design, chemosorption processes and materials functionalization.
