Monday 22 February – 14.00-15.30 CET (13.00-14.30 GMT)

      The Usable Packaging project, funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking as part of the EU Horizon 2020 programme, aims to significantly reduce the use of fossil-based, environmentally harmful packaging by developing a bio-alternative derived from food industry by-products and food waste. 

      Crucially, this bioplastic , at the end of its life, can be recycled and used to produce the next generation of bio-based packaging materials – creating a perfect bio-based, circular economy model for the plastics sector.

      As we reach mid-term in the three-year project launched in June 2019, French partners will be presenting the latest developments during a webinar taking place on Monday 22 February from 14.00 until 15.30 CET (13.00-14.30 GMT).

      Hosted by BBIA in partnership with Euramaterials, the webinar will feature the following line up of speakers:

      • Frédéric Merle, Euramaterials – An introduction to the Usable Packaging project
      • Valérie Guillard, University of Montpellier – The scientific aspects of the projects and the alternatives to fight against plastic pollution
      • Pascal Mélois, Sphere Distribution – The need for new materials for the packaging industry
      • Stéphane Merlet, Fleury-Michon – Effects on relations with consumers

      It will conclude with a Q&A session.

          PLEASE NOTE: the webinar will be conducted in FRENCH
