BIO-SUSHY KICKOFF MEETING

BIO-SUSHY KICKOFF MEETING

The EU-funded project BIO-SUSHY has just kicked off its efforts towards a sustainable future in surface protection. The project aims to develop alternative surface coatings that replace PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances), a widely used but environmentally damaging group of substances. Our CTO, Eva Serrano, and our International Project Manager, Patricia Serrano, recently attended the kick-off meeting in Mons, Belgium. This meeting brought together the consortium members to plan the next steps for achieving the project goals. Over the next four years, the BIO-SUSHY project will focus on the development of sustainable surface protection through the use of glass-like hybrid and biomaterial coatings. These coatings have the potential to replace PFAS […]
