End of year 3 update

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 […]
