The aim is creating multilayer and monolayer plastic bottles, as well as bags to package dairy products which are not required to be separated of the rest of the organic wastes at the end of their brief lifespan.
Developing a biodegradable material that will allow manufacturing of big multilayer bottles or bags, like the ones of milk or milkshakes, as well as smaller monolayer bottles, used to package probiotic dairy products.
One of the main difficulties the researchers of this project are facing is getting a biodegradable material which complies with the same requirements than the traditional packages used nowadays, including resistance to thermal treatments such as sterilization or pasteurization. For this, it is expected to modify the current commercial biodegradable materials through the reactive extrusion to overcome the thermal limitations thereof..
