About the Project

The SurfSAFE project focuses on the field of surface modification and biofilm analysis, necessary to enable development of tailor-made antifouling and antimicrobial, non-toxic surfaces inspired by nature

In critical zones of food processing plants, where biofilms are an issue, surface modification may reduce biological fouling and facilitate the removal of deposits formed. This approach will guarantee safer and higher quality products to consumers while minimizing cleaning downtimes and thus enabling substantial cost benefits to food processors.
