November 2013
Nonwovens Industry;Nov2013, Vol. 44 Issue 11, p30
The article reports on the potential of the Europe-wide Bacteriosafe project to increase the recovery chances of burn sufferers. The project, which involved major nonwovens companies and research institutes, was initiated in 2010 with the aim of constructing, testing, and developing an active wound dressing that incorporates a colorimetric sensor and active therapeutic processes. The project was coordinated by Max Planck Institute until 2014.
