The DECOAT project will allow to avoid landfilling 75% of the volume of textiles and plastics with coatings that until now were difficult to recycle. Thanks to the incorporation of smart additives they will be recovered and used in new applications and will generate a turnover of 150 million euros in Europe in the medium term.
Companies from the entire plastic food packaging industry such as Danone, SP GROUP, Klöckner Pentaplast, Knauf Industries, Comexi, Cadel Deinking, Artibal or Plásticos Romero showed the attendees and the media their latest developments in a space designed to exhibit their innovations.
The BIO-VECTORS project will help develop a functional coating with insecticidal and repellent properties against flies and mosquitos for cardboard containers and packaging suitable for food contact.
Industry leaders such as AMC Juices, Enplater Group, Novamont, Grupalia Pack and TÜV AUSTRIA, among others, will talk about their success stories on the incorporation of the Circular Economy and sustainability in their production processes.
