Summary: 

The main objective of the project is to
investigate in the development of a new
type of nanostructured materials, prepared
from natural, ecofriendly and cheap
natural resources as they are clays and
biopolymers. Both types of components
are abundant in Spain and Morocco, this
research representing an approach to
produce increase of the added value of
such resources. Budget: 200.000 €
