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.
Before the global problems derived from marine contamination, strategies have been proposed to replace conventional polymers as alternatives for biodegradable bioplastics, among which are highlighted: starch, cellulose, polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHBV) a type
On 1-2 March 2023, AIMPLAS will hold the eighth edition of its International Seminar on Biopolymers and Sustainable Composites, with the sponsorship of Waker, IMCD, Kompuestos, Primebiopolymers, Clariant and Asobiocom
The raw material that will be used to obtain organic products will come from both cultivated and wild species. The research and selection of underutilized species […]
The GUACAPACK Project, funded by the Valencian Innovation Agency, aims to use renewable sources to develop an innovative biodegradable packaging system that includes barrier labels and antioxidant additives from avocado waste that will extend food’s shelf life by 15%.
One of the keys for a successful implementation of the European Circular Economy is the increasing reliance on bio-based products derived from biomass. A wider adoption of such products can solve several problems linked to solid waste disposal
