On March 17 took place in IK4-CIDETEC the final meeting of the ECLIPSE project. The project, which began in 2012 and has lasted for three years, was aimed at developing new concepts for packaging (or packaging) Sustainable derived from renewable sources, more specifically, of different biomass residues.
The spring is starting with multiple chances for networking, the first of those being the traditional MRS Spring Meeting in San Francisco. This year, Graphenea participated in the meeting at two levels: Amaia Zurutuza, Graphenea’s Scientific Director gave a talk, and the company had a stand in the exhibit.
Today, Graphenea is embarking on a new phase in its development: it has begun to “fly solo”. Five years have elapsed since the setting up of the company (9 April 2010), and its promoter and scientific founder, CIC nanoGUNE, is no longer one of Graphenea’s shareholders, thus complying with one of the stipulations of the foundational agreement with Nanotechnology Investment Group SL.
Ceramics, hard crystalline solids, have been utilized by mankind for thousands of years, with earliest applications in pottery. In modern times, new ceramic materials were developed for use in advanced ceramic engineering, for example as semiconductors. One popular ceramic is alumina, an oxide of the metal aluminium.
