ECO-DESIGN of innovative and functional
DESIGNING THE MATERIALS OF TOMORROW
The search for alternatives to fossil resources, and the need to fight against climate change encourage
the development of new materials and a more environmentally-friendly chemistry.
This is why Carnot PolyNat aims to make the best use of biomass
for the eco-design of high-added-value bio-based materials and devices, with unique properties and unrivalled performances.
Hearing of projects: November 4 and 5, 2020 Each year PolyNat organizes a call for research projects on the theme of bio-sourced materials and devices. All researchers from partner laboratories and technical centers are invited to participate. Each project team must be composed of researchers from different entities, in order to take advantage of the […]
PolyNat teams will be present at the 2020 edition of Rendez-vous Carnot, taking place on November 18th and 19th online due to COVID-19 crisis. Organized each year by the Réseau des Carnot, these business meetings allow companies with research and development needs to meet scientific actors with industrial solutions. This event is an opportunity for […]
To miniaturize electronic systems, Redouane Borsali uses surprising materials: nano-organized sugar films. For his numerous works in this field, the director of the Institut Carnot PolyNat and research director at the Centre de recherches sur les macromolécules végétales (CERMAV, CNRS), has been awarded the International Prize of the Society of Polymer Science of Japan (SPSJ).
