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.

As follow up of the webinar in French held in February 2021, a webinar in Italian was held on 15th April 2021.
