Usable Packaging Partner Bioinicia has produced a biomask using new PHA technology akin to that of Usable Packaging to help with the Covid pandemic.
The plastic crisis that the Usable Packaging project is addressing has been exacerbated by the massive increase of mask waste that the Covid 19 Pandemic has created. Produced or containing non- biodegradable plastics of petrochemical origin such as polypropylene (PP), their widespread use since the outbreak of Covid 19 pandemic is now posing a serious environmental issue.
Usable Packaging partner BIOINICIA has developed an alternative biomask that replaces polypropylene with biobased and compostable polymers
that is biodegradable in the environment.
