USABLE PACKAGING webinar – Portuguese

The objective of the Usable Packaging project, launched in June 2019 for a three-year programme of research, is to develop a compostable packaging material using food industry by-products and food waste, to be used as an alternative to fossil-based, environmentally harmful equivalents for food, pharmaceutical and clothing packaging. The project is funded by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking as part of the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

On 30 June, BBIA hosted a webinar in Portuguese in partnership with Nova-Id.

Practical application of bio-based compostable product

USABLE PACKAGING project reaches new milestone with first practical application of bio-based compostable product. Spanish family enjoys meals using re-usable plates made from new PHA compound material. A family in Spain has been the first to use a new bio-based, re-usable and compostable plate manufactured as an outcome of the USABLE PACKAGING project – an EU-funded project launched last June as part of the Horizon2020 innovation programme. Governed by the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking (under Read more…
