Our Research Centre

AIMPLAS is a Technology Centre located in the Valencia Technology Parc in Paterna (Valencia) in Spain, with more than 25 years of experience helping companies in the plastic sector. Our centre is a reference in Europe in plastic materials and related technologies being the technology centre with more accreditations in plastic materials in Spain. Between our mission are adding value to companies to generate wealth and employment, and adding value to the society to improve the quality of life and ensure environmental sustainability. We are a team of more than 125 highly qualified professionals, and we dispose of over 9,500 m2 facilities with state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation. AIMPLAS has a current portfolio of more than 145 R&D projects, being around a third of them international projects, and managing a revenue of around 10 million € and a portfolio of clients of more than 2400.

As part of our Strategic Action Plan, AIMPLAS has a Talent Program to promote the recruitment of talented researchers and professionals in different areas of work, and a permanent training and education to develop workers careers in parallel to AIMPLAS growth and development. As part of this program, the work schedule is based in flexible bases and workers enjoy multiple benefits to promote a life healthier and richer based in its Corporate Social Responsibility.


Our Research Capacities

AIMPLAS main technological areas of work are Compounding, Composites, Design & Injection Moulding, Extrusion, Functional Printing, Sustainability & Industrial Recovery and Synthesis. Its technological developments and its research are focussed in the main Societal Challenges as health, industry 4.0, circular economy, climate change, food security, agriculture and silviculture and sustainable mobility.

AIMPLAS has a wide experience in transformation processes through European and National projects working in areas as nanofibers, cellulose, lignin – based materials, in the production of biopolymers from lignocellulosic waste, in the conversion of different streams from biorefineries into acids used as precursors for bio – based and biodegradable polymers, and in the development of multiple biobased solutions to create different industrial applications from different kind of waste. Several European projects in which AIMPLAS has taken part related to this area are FP7 NMP projects as Bugworkers (246449), KBBE projects as BRIGIT (KBBE – 2012 – 6 – 311935) and BIOREFINE – 2G (613771) and H2020 BBI projects as AGRIMAX (720719) or ENZOX2 (720297). In addition to European cooperation projects, AIMPLAS has been participating also in R&D National cooperation projects as LIGNO-PRIZED funded by CDTI.


Our interest

AIMPLAS is interested in recruiting an experienced researcher with a recognised expertise in lignocellulosic biomass treatments (thermal, mechanical, chemical and enzymatic) and downstream for chemicals production: separation, purification and characterization of their main components and inhibitors for a long term position.

The applicant should be a compromised researcher, willing to be part of AIMPLAS team and contributing to our aim in the transformation of the plastic and materials industry and in the promotion of the circle economy through this challenging project. In this position, the researcher recruited would be able to develop a new knowledge area with the support, the expertise and the knowledge from AIMPLAS to grow as a researcher and as part of our team.


How to apply

Anyone interested has to send by email a motivation letter with a CV and some recognised references to fmarti@aimplas.es.
