Research

The products offered by CellMat Technologies are based on our specific know-how that has been acquired along the years during the carrying out of several research projects and novel developments in the fields of cellular materials and bioplastics. Therefore, R&D has for CellMat Technologies a strategic relevance.

Nowadays our efforts are focused in the following topics:

nanocellularDevelopment of nanocellular polymers by means of physical foaming processes.

 

 

 

cellular nanocomDevelopment of multifunctional cellular nanocomposites with improved physical properties.

 

 

 

Development and optimization of low density open cell polyolefin based foams. OpenCellMat Technology.

 

 

 

Development and optimization of cellular materials with high specific stiffness and strength for structural applications. AniCell Technology

 

 

 Production of lightweight elements with large size using a cheap technology. Stages Molding Technology.

 

 

Optimization and development of blowing agents and micro- and nano-sized nucleating agents for foaming processes.

 

 

Improvement of the foamability of polymeric matrices by using additivation.
Development of biodegradable foamed products for the packaging sector.

Optimization of products based on thermoplastic starch to be used as biodegradable materials.

CellMat Technologies is interested in the participation in R&D projects in which our experience could result in a significant contribution.

CellMat Technologies leads the project “LOW DENSITY NANOCELLULAR POLYMERS FOR THERMAL INSULATION IN BUILDINGS. BASIC HEAT TRANSFER MECHANISMS AND LCA”
In addition to  CellMat Technologies other project partners are: National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan) and Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Brasil).

R&D PROJECTS IN INTERNATIONAL COLLABORATION WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE M-ERA.NET NETWORK (CALL 2020). Project financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union and the Junta de Castilla y León, through the Institute for Business Competitiveness of Castilla y León (ICE).

R&D PROJECTS IN SMEs. Project financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) of the European Union and the Junta de Castilla y León, through the Institute for Business Competitiveness of Castilla y León (ICE).

CellMat Technologies participates in the project “BIONANOPOLYS: OPEN INNOVATION TEST BED FOR DEVELOPING SAFE NANO-ENABLED BIO-BASED MATERIALS AND POLYMER BIONANOCOMPOSITES FOR MULTIFUNCTIONAL AND NEW ADVANCED APPLICATIONS”

HORIZON 2020 PROJECT funded by the European Union within the framework of the H2020-EU.2.1.3 programs. and H2020-EU.2.1.2.

CellMat Technologies participated in the project MODAIS – “Development of heat and moisture transference models for constructive elements included integrated insulating elements”.

The MODAIS project was developed in the frame of CLEANTECHBLOCK – “Sustainable Multi-Functional Building Block Basics” that was carried out by the consortium integrated by Jozef Stefan Institute (Slovenia), the Centre for Industrial Ecology of University of Coimbra (Portugal) and CellMat Technologies SL (Spain).

CLEANTECHBLOCK project received funds from M-ERA.NET 2016 program and it was co-funded by the ADE (Agency for Enterprise Innovation, Funding and Internationalization) and by the Research and Innovation Program Horizon 2020 of the European Union.
