Bio-based packaging materials: better functional performance than their fossil-based equivalents
Field: Innovation; EnvironmentalAwareness
The European Commission laid out plans to make all plastic packaging on the EU market recyclable by 2030 reduce single-use plastics and restrict the intentional use of microplastics in the 2018 Plastics Strategy. Products made from oxo-degradable plastics will be banned from the EU market from July 2021.
In a step towards this, Horizon 2020, a European Commission initiative, is holding an open call for innovators and organisations developing technologies for superior bio-based packaging solutions with minimal environmental damage.
Proposals should address one of the following objectives.
The deadline for this call is 3rd September 2020.
