Research into bioplastics continues to make progress and significant growth is expected in the world bioplastics market in coming years. This increase is due to the need for companies to offer sustainable solutions to consumers who are more and more demanding, as well as the application possibilities of bioplastics, especially in the packaging, transport and mobility industries.
AIMPLAS, in its biodegradability and compostability laboratories, carries out the necessary analyses to demonstrate that materials or products are biodegradable and/or compostable. We are certified by TÜV to obtain different eco-labels, and we are also accredited by ENAC and EMA
AIMPLAS has coordinated a project that has allowed developing a new generation of biodegradable and compostable packages for cheese and fresh pasta, with a lower cost up to 25 % and a reduction of the final carbon footprint up to 29 %.
The FIBFAB project, coordinated by AIMPLAS, will allow obtaining sustainable textile fibres to replace polyester with advantages such as higher breathability, lower weight, better tinting and UV rays resistance.
The Plastics Technology Centre participates in a project to develop new biopolymer synthesis and modification routes in a single stage by means of reactive extrusion processes.
AIMPLAS role within the project OSIRYS is mainly related to the functionalization of graphene for its use with thermosetting resins and pultrusion process with natural fibers and bioresins
AIMPLAS will contribute with its experience, acquired in more than 25 years working on innovative projects, focused on the increase of food’s shelf life and […]
With the aim of guarantee sustainability within the plastics’ sector is crucial the development of new biopolymers together with new routes and efficient synthesis processes […]
