The Marisurf team took part in the Edinburgh International Science festival family fun day at Heriot Watt university on 13th April 2019. They put on a series of experiment highlighting the use of emulsifiers and gelling agents in every day life from hand creams to […]
During the first 36 months, the MARISURF team has screened more than 500 marine bacteria strains for surfactant / emulsifying activity. The industrial end users have identified the desirable properties for the bio-surfactants & 79 have been identified with promising properties that could potentially replace the current mainly petroleum-based, chemical products. LEITAT & ULSTER have […]
