Breakthroughs in material sciences can contribute significantly to better environmental outcomes in areas such as packaging and pollution mitigation. The STN ecosystem is pleased to be working with two projects that have active capabilities and scientifically validated advanced materials and products, which can contribute to these outcomes. The projects are:
1. Starch-based high-tech packaging technologies, with proven high-impact benefits in terms of carbon capture when returned to the earth. Ongoing laboratory testing and production refinement will see further improvements in impact ranges, with global applications.
2. Activated carbon production utilising unique and patented manufacturing technologies. These systems have been operational for a number of years, and are gearing up for diversified global expansion on the back of robust credence claims.
