Novel packaging films and textiles with tailored end of life and performance based on bio-based copolymers and coatings

Project description

A new shopping bag made from bio-based plastic

The plastic shopping bag we use today was invented in 1965. By the 1980s, the plastic bag revolution was in full swing with grocers and department stores around the world using them. It was a simple decision since plastic bags are stronger and cheaper compared to paper. Reducing plastic bag use is a priority for the EU today. The EU-funded BIOnTop project will help shape the future of the plastics sector via recyclable-by-design cost-competitive packaging solutions. The packaging will be made from renewable resources and will be biodegradable in home-composting conditions as well as recyclable for secondary packaging.
