The main challenge of the OPTOBIO project is to manufacture 100 % biodegradable glasses from by-products generated in the fruit juice industry.


Firstly, the project contributes to reducing the impact of the agri-food industry by recovering the waste it generates. Secondly, it transforms this waste by manufacturing totally biodegradable glasses thanks to the development of a new bioplastic. This bioplastic, in turn, is easier to manage at the end of the glasses’ useful life.
