Below you will find the project(s) involving work on colouring agents: 

CoE BBE: BioKleur 

The focus of the BioKleur project is on searching for environmentally-friendly alternatives for colouring agents. The fact that synthetic colours are so stable means they are not broken down in the environment. What is more, synthetic colouring agents and excipients are often toxic which implies a cumulative effect for the environment. This causes problems when synthetic colouring agents are used in biologically degradable packaging material and end up in the environment. Natural colouring agents are a possible solution which could prevent this problem.
