Foams are lightweight materials where a matrix encloses air filled cavities. The foams can be solid or flow depending on the targeted use. As with all materials use, also with foams, there is a challenge of being mindful of the used resources. BreadCell Project work towards making polymer foams more sustainable. Come and learn about foams, their properties, uses and how we work towards foams that can be part of sustainable solutions.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 964430.
