Innovative nanocellulose bioplastic film from fruit waste

Project description

Biodegradable food packaging from food waste

Most food packaging solutions made from fossil-based plastics are produced and consumed in an unsustainable manner, contributing to greenhouse gas emissions as large volumes of food plastic packaging end up as litter. The EU-funded EcoFLEXY project developed sustainable food packaging solutions from food waste through a near carbon-neutral production process. The EcoFLEXY project aims to be a leading player in the EUR 0.9 billion global market for flexible packaging for the food industry with a market share of 2.4 %. The project will conduct a feasibility study to determine customer requirements for sustainable packaging and to explore different food applications.
