Technology's influence on our lives and the world has reached unprecedented levels. Its advancements affect both humanity and the environment, underscoring the necessity to harness it for addressing global issues. By focusing on environmental protection, green transition, sustainable development, healthcare, agriculture, energy, climate change, and more, we can steer technological progress towards positive outcomes.

The EcoPlastiC project was at the center of it all, where various tangible bioplastic materials (PHA, PLA) and bacterial nanocellulose (solubilized or dry) were presented as possible solutions of the worldwide problem of plastic waste.

The EcoPlastiC project also attracted media’s attention, so our colleague Dr Sanja Skaro Bogojevic gave a statement for the EKOVIZIJA television, the first Serbian TV channel dedicated especially to ecology.
