Idalina Gonçalves, a researcher on the Division of Supplies and Ceramic Engineering, College of Aveiro, gained the celebrated worldwide award from FEMS
The Supplies Science and Expertise Award issued by the Federation of European Supplies Societies (FEMS) goals to acknowledge younger supplies scientists or engineers who’ve made contributions within the subject of supplies science and expertise. This 12 months’s honor was awarded to Idalina Gonçalves, a junior researcher on the Division of Supplies and Ceramic Engineering (DEMaC) and CICECO-Institute of Supplies on the College of Aveiro (UA).
“Received the FEMS Materials Science and Expertise Award additional motivates me to proceed to review the event and flexibility of bioplastics extracted from agricultural meals by-products, and make its industrialization a actuality. I hope this may have a big impression on the group and assist Contribute to a real round bioeconomy”, the researchers hypothesized in a press launch.
Idalina Gonçalves holds a Ph.D. in chemical and organic engineering from the College of Minho, and is at the moment conducting analysis on the processability of bioplastics derived from agricultural meals by-products in laboratories and pilot scales, and its expertise is suitable with industrial plastic processing. Its work strengthens the cooperation between the African Union and agricultural, meals, and plastic processing corporations which might be looking for different methods so as to add worth to agricultural meals by-products and develop biodegradable plastics.
Because the winner of this award, Idalina Gonçalves was invited to offer a plenary speech throughout the FEMS EUROMAT 2021 convention from September twelfth to sixteenth.
