Abstract

The use of nanofibers is expanding from academic into industry as these lightweight and highly porous materials are advantageous in many application areas. The main objectives of this roject is to reveal the potential of the bioeconomy in Europe, to decrease the use of fossil-based products, lead to greener and more environmentally friendly growth by fighting against climate change. For this purpose, nonwovens are prepared from bio-based polymers using solution electrospinning method for cosmetics and wound-care applications.

Keywords: Bio-based polymers, electrospinning, nanofibers, wound-care, face masks
