Computer based modeling for improved protein-based superabsorbents from waste

One of the main aims of the Waste Refinery Excellence Center is to produce new useful materials from waste. One example is zygomycetes funghi that can produce a variety of products when degrading lignocellulose, except fuel compounds also chitosan and protein materials which can be act as superabsorbents can be produced. The aim of this project is to model the protein superabsorbents produced and to propose treatments of the material to enhance the absorbing properties.
