The use of plastic products in agriculture has led to an authentic revolution in farming and society in general that has made it possible to convert land with little potential into productive farmland. The versatility of agricultural plastics makes them ideal for use in a number of applications, such as mulch films, crop protective netting, plant covers, irrigation systems and seedbeds.
The project BIOVEGE, in which AIMPLAS participates, has been successfully completed, since the first results from horticultural wastes in the form of biodegradable films and nets have been obtained.
The European poultry sector generates 3.6 million tonnes of waste feathers each year, of which only around 25% are collected separately and valorised for feather meal and fertiliser applications. A new European funded collaborative project, UNLOCK, was launched on 1 May to generate new value from a waste stream that contains nearly 90 % keratin, a valuable protein that can be a source for biodegradable materials.
The AGRO+ Project, funded by the Valencian Innovation Agency (AVI), aims to develop new compostable plastics for the agricultural sector with improved degradation rates to ensure high-quality compost.
