When someone talk about agriculture, we instantly think about food, right? But if we say to you, we can do so much more with it, specially using waste of it. In this event, we will present the latest use of agriculture wastes for development of technologies to use in medical and health applications

Did you know that agriculture wastes are powering the future of medical devices?

Join us for an extraordinary journey as we delve into the hidden potential of agricultural waste! Did you know that even after the harvest season ends, agricultural leftovers hold the key to groundbreaking discoveries? Our research focuses on harnessing the power of agriculture waste to produce nanocellulose, a remarkable material with endless possibilities. But what makes nanocellulose so special? Picture this: scaffolds for bone tissue engineering, wound dressings for accelerated healing, and filters for hospital hygiene—all made possible by this versatile material derived from agriculture waste. Don't miss out on this chance to witness science in action and discover how agricultural waste is transforming the future of medicine. Join us for inspiring insights and learn how nature's waste can become tomorrow's medical marvels!
