PackagingBiotechnologySustainable materialsCircular economyExtrusionEuropean

Objectives:

To demonstrate environmental and socio-economic benefits of a biodegradable food packaging material with a lower environmental impact through the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in comparison with current petrol-based food packaging materials.

Description:

The biodegradable food packaging material selected is Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) that will be obtained from a by-product (whey) that comes from the cheese industries; PHB will be produced using a process of microbial fermentation.

The project has been co-funded by the PLAN DE ACTUACIÓN IVACE during 2017. This programme has been supported by the Regional Ministry of Sustainable Economy, Productive Sectors, Trade and Employment of the Valencian regional government through the Valencian Institute of Business Competitivity (IVACE).
