RUBIO provides bio-booster for the plastics industry in Central Germany

Regionally available raw materials are to be turned into plastics that can be used in a variety of ways, thus making Central Germany a showcase region for green chemistry: With this goal in mind, 18 partners have joined forces in the "RUBIO" project, which covers the entire value chain from raw materials to recycling. The Fraunhofer Institute for Microstructure of Materials and Systems IMWS in Halle (Saale) is contributing its expertise in the development of bioplastics and the characterization of polymer materials.
