SSAP: a fully natural solution to petroleum-based absorbent plastics

The Sustainable Superabsorbents (SSAP) aims for the creation of novel plant protein-based superabsorbent polymers (SAP), which are mostly produced from non-sustainable petrochemical sources.

Plant Breeding Agriculture

Plant breeding will contribute significantly to future crop production systems because new cultivars must have an increased resistance to bacteria, fungi, insects, nematodes and viruses, improved

Plant Product Quality Horticulture

Plant Product Quality Horticulture

The content and composition of different components in fruits, berries and vegetables naturally have a great variation and this can be used for end products with different properties. We investigate

Plant Product Quality Agriculture
