BIOnTop: Novel packaging films and textiles with tailored end of life and performance based on bio-based copolymers and coatings
BIOnTop, Grant agreement ID: 837761,
Only 31% of plastic is currently recycled and plastic packaging still have a deficient end of life. Thus, improvements are needed to provide cost effective solutions with high bio-based contents and suitable performances for demanding packaging applications while still achieving compostability in mild conditions.
- BIOnTOP delivers recyclable-by-design cost competitive packaging solutions that can be mechanically recycled, industrially/home composted or even suitable for anaerobic digestion.
- BIOnTOP packaging, based on >85% renewable resources, will be compatible with a broad range of packaging applications’ requirements but also multiple end of Life options. Our materials will be biodegradable in home composting conditions but also recyclable for multiple use secondary packaging.
- BIOnTOP will generate growth for EU bioplastics and end users’ industries in the food and personal care sectors with potential in many fields
- BIOnTOP production is estimated to reach close to 9.6 Mton per year by 2030, overall leading to €40 M turnover and 170 new jobs. All in all, reducing the environmental footprint of plastics, our new bio-based packaging will have a significant positive social and environmental impact.
