The technology centre that specialises in Polymers Technology has developed a proprietary characterisation method in its advanced mechanical testing laboratory that yields results that do not depend on the expansion coefficients of external components such as fasteners or supports. Leartiker thus ensures that these external components have no impact on the property being analysed.

Leartiker Esneki Zentroa, the first Dairy Centre in the Basque Country, was born around this time three years ago in collaboration with HAZI and the Basque Government, and because of a long trajectory of almost 15 years within the specialisation of the Leartiker dairy sector. Its birth was a great milestone for the dairy sector in the Basque Country, becoming a reference centre where producers go to carry out technical consultations, training, carry out innovation projects and, above all, do so in a personalised, efficient, and collaborative way. The data speaks for itself.

BIRSARE project, in which Leartiker is participating together with Aclima, Birziplastik, MIK, Plásticos Clossa and the CEP (Spanish Plastics Centre), aims to analyse and develop new circular value chains in the blue economy through the recycling of fishing nets. With this initiative we pretend to generate the new knowledge that is required to develop data and information exchange tools, based on 4.0 technologies, which will serve to consolidate new recycling chains for used fishing nets.

Exploring Latin American cheeses: A trip to Argentina to visit artisan dairies and attend the debut of the ALQA association
Exploring Latin American cheeses: A trip to Argentina to visit artisan dairies and attend the debut of the ALQA association

2023-12-05

Recently, two researchers from the Leartiker Dairy Centre had the opportunity to travel to Argentina and learn more about the reality of artisanal dairies in several Latin American countries. This trip coincided with the first meeting of the newly established Latin American Association of Artisan Dairies (ALQA, Asociación Latinoamericana de Queserías Artesanales), which was held in the city of Las Flores (Buenos Aires), and to which we were honoured to be invited. In addition to producers from different regions of Argentina, the event was also attended by producers from Mexico and Uruguay.
