The Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials of the Polish Academy of Sciences earned honourable mention in the 7th edition of the "EUREKA!  DGP - Discovering Polish Inventions" competition for the invention of "Non-woven wound dressing and method for producing the non-woven wound dressing". The invention was developed by the teams from the Centre of Polymer and Carbon Materials of Polish Academy of Sciences and Silesian Medical University in Katowice.

The invention concerns a nano-nonwoven dressing obtained with the use of electrospinning designed to treat slow-healing wounds. Its innovativeness consists in the maximum acceleration of regeneration of damaged tissues as well as the reduction of complications and formation of scars. The dressing is biocompatible and biodegradable. It is absorbed during the treatment process by releasing propolis, an active ingredient and therapeutic agent with anti-inflammatory, analgesic and regenerative properties. The dressing degradation time can be modified by altering its composition, microstructure and thickness, thus making it adjustable to the wound type.

The competition was organised by Dziennik Gazeta Prawna. It was participated by research institutes and scientific units of the Polish Academy of Sciences which presented the inventions filed with the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland in the years 2017-2018.

The aim of this year's competition was to present the inventions which have practical applications and can be used in production.

In short

The Center belongs to category A of scientific facilities in Poland. It was established on January 1, 2007 as a result of a merger of the Center of Polymer Chemistry of PAN in Zabrze and the Institute of Carbochemistry of PAN in Gliwice – two centers of the Polish Academy of Sciences which, for many years, had been conducting systematic work on the production and properties of macromolecular polymer and carbon materials.
