The 2nd networking event, project Blow Up “Industry and academic synergy for strengthening of raw materials research”

In the framework of the project “Blow Up”, project partners, Faculty of Science University of Banja Luka and LIR Evolution organized the 2nd networking event on 4th of September 2018.

The topic of the event was the elimination of pollution caused by the processing of raw materials.

The seminar was organized in cooperation with the City Development Agency (CIDEA) Banja Luka, an important regional partner supporting local development and links with industrial sectors.

Particularly interesting were the presence of two representatives of SES Nordic company from Denmark. This company produces biological agents for decomposition and elimination of pollution by lubricants and petroleum products. The day before the seminar, the technology was demonstrated in the field on a stationary water surface. Considering that an experiment is being carried out within the Blow Up project for the development of domestic lubricants (company Tehnosint), improved with additives from nanoparticles, the topic of eliminating possible pollution by lubricants was very significant.

Representatives of SMEs, research institutes, universities, regional development agencies and civil society organizations attended the seminar and were able to engage in debate and exchange their ideas and experiences.
