The Centre for Sustainable Future Technologies (CSFT) located within the Environment Park in Turin has embraced sustainability in its mission statement and is engaged in the global scientific and technological endeavours to address the sustainability challenges, primarily the reduction of anthropogenic CO2 footprint and improved efficiency in the usage of alternative energy and feedstocks. To deliver sustainability-compliant technologies the Centre fosters alternate routes, which include the development of advanced materials for carbon capture and storage along with in-depth characterization of their properties at the structural, chemical, electrical, electrochemical, and mechanical levels. The equally appealing approach pursued by the Centre is based on the development of best-practice biology-based process technologies for carbon transformation into valuable specialty or everyday products. Based on diversified expertise, the Advanced Materials for Sustainable Future Technologies line and the Systems and Synthetic Biology create complementary and converging solutions to meet the demands for sustainability.
