Final Report - POLYSACCHARIDES (The European Polysaccharide Network)

Project ID: 500375
Funded under: FP6-NMP


This is the final report for the POLYSACCHARIDES project. Polysaccharides e.g. cellulose and chitin are the planet's most important natural structural polymers. As concern increases about the environment and the limited lifetime of fossil fuels, polysaccharides will become a major source of products in the next decades. The aim was to organise the EU scientific community around a network in order to promote the use of these renewable raw materials as industry feedstock and for the manufacturing of advanced, multifunctional materials. The project aims and objectives were achieved and these achievements are listed in the final report.
