HORIZON 2020 CALL FOR BIO-BASED PACKAGING SOLUTIONS

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.

  • They must produce superior,reusable or recyclable, bio-based plastic solutions for a specific application that demands reusability or recyclability as the best end-of-life option to prevent environmental damage. The targeted bio-based plastic solutions must be integrated in a circular value chain operating at demonstration level.
  • They must produce superior bio-based plastic solutions that are biodegradable, industry compostable, home-compostable or degradable in specific environments. These solutions must be superior for a specific application that demands degradability/compostability as the best end-of-life option to prevent environmental damage. The targeted bio-based plastic solutions must be integrated in a circular value chain operating at demonstration level.

The deadline for this call is 3rd September 2020.
