Grupo CARINSA leads the PERFUMIC project: Perfums higienitzants basats in ingredients of biotechnological synthesis (RD14-1-0049) granted by ACCIÓ10 (Generalitat de Catalunya) within the NUCLIS program. This project, led by the Division of Perfumery of the CARINSA Group aims to develop a perfume with antimicrobial properties to be used as an additive with dual functionality in cleaning products. This dual functionality will be based on the ability of the perfume to eliminate odors and improve hygiene in both industrial and domestic environments.
