NOVEL GREEN POLYMERIC MATERIALS FOR MEDICAL PACKAGING AND DISPOSABLES TO IMPROVE HOSPITAL SUSTAINABILITY

Project description

Circular opportunities for the medical sector

Derived from renewable feedstocks, such as starch, cellulose, vegetable oils and vegetable fats, bioplastics are plastics that can also be biodegradable. Bioplastics play a key role in the transition to a circular economy by replacing fossil with renewable resources and increasing recycling targets as well as resource and waste management efficiency. Responding to this need, the EU-funded GREEN-MAP project will enable a circular economy in hospitals – within the disposable medical device industry. It will develop novel bio-based, biodegradable polymers that can be used in medical device packaging as well as for disposable medical devices/components. Specifically, the project will form an intersectional and international research network, bringing together experts from inside and outside academia to ensure a high level and effective sharing of new knowledge.
