GLOPACK Project –New generation of bio-based and fully degradable composite food-trays made of biopolymers and fibresfrom agrowastes. Materials optimization for upscaled productive solutions

Abstract : Current environmental awarenessregarding wastes managementhas driven the development of new biodegradable materials, especially for the substitution of single use plastic items. The European Horizon 2020 innovation actionGLOPACK (Granting society with LOw environmental impact innovative PACKaging) is involvedin this dynamics, raising an issue which representsa strong requirement of today’s food industry and society in general: how can we acceleratethe transitionto a circular bio-packaging economy concept? To tackle this question, this project aims at developing efficient solutions to produce biodegradable food packaging materials derived from the conversion of agro-food residues. Such an approach offers a double benefit: (i) it first creates added value to non-valorised bio-wastes and (ii) participates to theemergence of a new generation of food packaging with lowenvironmental footprint.
