Unlocking the potential of Sustainable BiodegradabLe Packaging

Project description

A sustainable circular economy uses food processing waste to make food packaging products

Plastic packaging materials have become ubiquitous. They are widely used in the food and beverage, healthcare, cosmetics, consumer goods and home and garden industries. Most plastics start with hydrocarbons from crude oil. The USABLE PACKAGING project plans to turn that process on its head by developing biomass-based, biodegradable raw materials from food processing streams. Scientists will then use those materials to produce packaging that rivals conventional petrochemical-based ones in technical characteristics and performance. To round out the benefits, the packaging can be recycled in two ways, either through conventional organic recycling to yield biogas or through biotech recycling for reuse in USABLE PACKAGING. The end result will be a sustainable, bio-based product within a circular value chain.
