CBIMO is an interdisciplinary group working within Faculty of Food Sciences and Fisheries (West Pomeranian University of Technology in Szczecin). 
CBIMO R&D activities are mainly focused on following topics:
- bioimmobilization and microencapsulation of living cells, bioactive substances and food-additives (encapsulation from macro- down to to nano- scale)
- biodegradable food-packaging materials (mainly cellulose, starch and PLA based materials)
- characterization and various methods of food packaging
- isolation, chemical modification and purification of biopolymers (specifically polysaccharides and their hydrophobic derivatives)
- physico-chemical characterization of biopolymers.

See the presentation of CBIMO R&D activities and recent projects.
