GER Research Group

  Green Engineering and Resources is a Research Group formed by researchers from the University of Cantabria (Department of Chemistry and Process & Resource Engineering, ETSIIT).

Vision & Mission

  Integration of the technology, ecology, economics and social aspects in our teaching, research  and communication  activities with stakeholders to promote sustainable development and Green Engineering. We are involved in the use and application of strategies and practices related to knowledge management in an integrated framework of R&D&i teaching-real world applications promoting the decision-making process to solve problems in a context of international cooperation.

Areas

 We specifically address the synthesis, analysis, simulation and optimization of systems that include interconnectivity with available energy and material flows. These include design of waste valorization processes, application of lines of evidence for risk assessment and technical decision-making  processes.

  • FEASIBILITY STUDY OF SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDE EXTRACTION AND CHARACTERIZATION FROM MARINE MACROALGAE BIOMASS: POLIEXTRALGA
    FEASIBILITY STUDY OF SULFATED POLYSACCHARIDE EXTRACTION AND CHARACTERIZATION FROM MARINE MACROALGAE BIOMASS: POLIEXTRALGA

    On October 1st, 2018, the Project entitled “Feasibility of Sulfated Polysaccharide Extraction and Characterization from marine macroalgae: POLIEXTRALGA“ kicked off. The project, commissioned by Spanish biotech company INVESTALGA AHTI S.L. will have a duration of 8 months and will be developed by the GER group, with Dra. Tamara Llano Astuy as Researcher in charge. The main goal of this research project is to study the feasibility of sulfated polysaccharide extraction from marine macroalgae biomass analyzing parameters affecting the auto hydrolysis such as residence time or temperature, among others. Sulfated polysaccharide extracts will be characterized in terms of monosaccharides, uronic acids, molecular weight distribution, total sulfates and total ashes.
