As part of the LIFE program Konrad Rosén, GAIA BioMaterials visited the final conference of the BAQUA project on the Gran Canaria in October 2019 . The purpose was to learn more about the BAQUA project, present the Biodolomer for LIFE project and to exchange experiences. Both projects show case products benefitting from using locally sourced bio-based resources as raw material. Konrad shared the experiences of using bio-based filler material and the challenge in using fibres in compound manufacuring. The aim was also to make new connections and find potential collaborations between the project participants for the future. The conference included 50 attendants from academy, compounding business and investors.
