On October 18, 2022, the CATCO2NVERS consortium partners held its third General Assembly meeting in Istanbul, Turkey hosted by our partner EVYAP.
There, the different partners had the opportunity to discuss and analyse the progress carried out in the last semester of this initiative that seeks to reduce greenhouse gas from the bio-based industries.
The first part of the agenda was to explain the activities, tasks, challenges and risks conducted and encountered in the last six months in the scientific framework as well as in the project management, communication and exploitation. During the work package presentations, the consortium partners could also exchange fruitful ideas and methodologies revolving around the project’s technical development.
The third consortium meeting ended with a tour through the EVYAP facilities where Asli Ozge Avci Tuna, Global R&D Manager showed the labs and some of the scientific materials that the company uses.
The role of EVYAP within the CATCO2NVERS project is to contribute to CO2 utilisation by integrating and validating lactic acid (LA) and glyoxylic acid (GA) as additives in cosmetics formulation which will result in valuable properties such as anti-ageing for skincare, buffering and antibacterial agents in cosmetics, and biocidal products, respectively.
