IMPROVED PACKAGING PRODUCTS FROM RENEWABLE MATERIALS

Objective

The overall objective of the project is to improve packaging products (for favourable quality and favourable environmental performance) manufactured from:

- paper-based and paperboard-based sheet material and -forms,

- starting from renewable resources and recycled materials.

- Favourable quality : improved packaging products

- Packaging materials and -products will be identified that will benefit from:

- enhanced stiffness, with and without paper waste in their fibrous furnish;

- enhanced barrier properties (moisture, liquids) from applying polymer resins, manufactured from naturally occurring organic substances

The research programme will explore

- the suitability of fibrous raw materials (FRM) and other resources for targeted produce and products

- the applicability of some polymer compounds, from plant materials, for the same purpose and the research programme will endeavour to feature:

- re-use, extended life cycle and

- ability to recycle, bio-degradability.
