The main objective of this project has been to industrialize the process related to the fabrication of different types of biodegradable-compostable nets, obtained by Extrusion Melt Spinning process for agriculture (citrus fruits, potatoes, onions) and shellfish packaging products.
The main output of the ECOBIONET project has been the industrialisation of the production of four different biodegradable packaging nets: oriented and non-oriented nets of two or three filaments in combination with plastic sheets, in a conventional one-step extrusion process using as a base material the biodegradable compounds developed in a preliminary project.
Besides maintaining all of the properties of conventional nets, this new biodegradable packaging is also compostable. This means that after 6 months in conditions of industrial compostability they turn into fertilizer for plants, therefore being introduced once again into the product growing cycle.
