CERTH

The Laboratory of Polymer Reaction Engineering (LPRE) was established in 1985 and is part of the Chemical Process and Energy Resources Institute (CPERI), one of the Institutes of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH). The main mission of LPRE is to carry out innovative, collaborative research with an emphasis on advanced multi-scale modeling of chemical and biochemical systems, functional materials, novel micro- and nano-encapsulation technologies, molecularly imprinted polymers for selective recognition and separation of target compounds, nanotechnology applications in targeted delivery systems, as well as, for microbial production of functional biopolymers from renewable sources, the design and application of 2nd and 3rd generation biorefineries and the bioconversion of several types of biomass (lignocellulosic, microalgal, wastes and residues, etc.,) into high value bioproducts.

ICE-HT

The Institute of Chemical Engineering Sciences (ICE-HT) was founded in Patras in 1984 and started its operation as an Independent Academic Institute. In 1987, it was one of the founding Institutes of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH). The ICE-HT laboratories involved in the implementation of the project are the Laboratory of Environmental Biotechnology (LEB) and the Laboratory of Applied Molecular Spectroscopy (LAMS). In LEB, over the past 25 years, significant research is carried out in the design, development and optimization of bioprocesses, focusing on anaerobic digestion and aerobic and anaerobic fermentations to produce biofuels (H2, methanol, ethanol) and bioplastics.  LAMS team is mainly involved in the study and characterization of composite materials, including various encapsulations in polymeric matrices; it has extensive experience in the production of such films by means of film casting, melt blending, phase inversion, etc.

AUA

The Laboratories of Food Engineering, Processing and Preservation of Agricultural Products (LFE), Food Microbiology and Biotechnology (LFMB) and Food Chemistry and Analysis (LFCA) of the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition (DFSHN) of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA), are fully equipped and have the necessary infrastructures to support research programs. Their research teams consist of 3 postdoctoral researchers, 10 PhD candidates and 10 postgraduate students working on research objects such as: the use of renewable raw materials (e.g., food industry wastes) to develop biofuel production plants, industrial biotechnology, development of bioprocesses and biorefineries using appropriate software, and techno-economic assessment and life-cycle analysis (LCA).

UOA

The Microbial Biotechnology Group belongs to the Department of Botany/School of Biology of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (UOA). The group applies combinations of classic microbiology techniques with modern molecular approaches of metabolic engineering and synthetic biology for a) the isolation and the identification of different microbial strains from environmental samples, b) the study of the biosynthesis of enzymes and metabolic products with biotechnological interest by various microorganisms, c) the development of enzymatic and microbial processes and systems for the production of biofuels and intermediate high-added value biochemicals from lignocellulosic biomass (2nd generation biorefinery) and d) the study of biodegradation of xenobiotic compounds and contaminants.

KARAMPOULAS

The G. Karampoulas & Sons CO company (KARAMPOULAS) started as a small and inovative distillery in 1967. Initially, it produced and bottled fine liquors; it was awarded with a patent for its novel ideas. In 1978, by taking into account the new market demands, it adapted a new activity in juice bottling. Soon, the family business expanded significantly. In 1989, the facilities of the company were moved to new building of 1500 sq.m. in an area of 1 acre. In 1989, it also started producing bottled water, which remains the main activity of the company until now. Over the last decade, the company produces packaging materials, specializing in PET bottles and jars. In 2008, a major investment program was implemented that included new machinery, renovation of facilities, new marketing plan and improvement of safety and quality control systems. Now, the turnover of the company is based on the production of a wide range of high quality products.

CHELMOS

CHELMOS company (KALAVRITA CHELMOS SA) is the first Dairy Industry in Peloponnese. Since 1979, the company has been continuously accomplishing success both in Greece and abroad. It steadily rises its growth rates and strengthens its position in the international market. Once a year, the company, following internal review and audits, sets measurable goals in order to improve its products and fully satisfy its customers. By participating in competing research programs and projects, CHELMOS aims to collaborate directly with research organizations and academic institutions, focusing on: improving the know-how and specialization of its executives, upgrading the production and processing lines, improving the production and the quality of products, reducing the generated wastes, developing environmentally friendly technologies and introducing environmentally friendly food packaging products, such as, completely biodegradable plastics.
