Maria Eugenio Martin
Dr. Martin is a Senior Researcher at INIA-CIFOR. Her research focuses mainly on the use of agricultural residues and annual plants for pulp and paper production and on the development of sustainable processes for the production of cellulose pulps applying biotechnology specifically in the processes of biobleaching and bio pulping. She also started researching biorefineries of lignocellulosic materials focusing mainly on the production of bioethanol and nanofibrillated cellulose. Dr. Martin is currently studying the use of both nanofibrillated cellulose and lignin in the production of biodegradable grasses, asphalts, graphene, etc. She has been the main researcher of three research projects from which two patents have been granted and is an author of more than 60 scientific articles and has participated in more than 40 national and international congresses.
