Biodegradable and waterproof take-away containers made of wheat bran

Project description

Novel food packaging technology finds new, eco-friendly uses for wheat bran

Wheat bran – a by-product of the milling industry – has a relatively low market value and is mostly used as feed for animals; otherwise, if not treated, it becomes waste. The EU-funded Branbox project, run by the Polish company Biotrem, will put wheat bran to good use by introducing proprietary technology that makes takeaway food containers from this raw material. These water-resistant, disposable containers are biodegrade within 30 days. Two major issues nowadays for such containers are sustainability and environmental impact, both of which are hard to overcome in a single product. Distributors, food service providers, packaging producers and mills – and all consumers – will greatly benefit from this innovative food packaging solution.
