Novel packaging films and textiles with tailored end of life and performance based on bio-based copolymers and coatings.

Term of this project: June 1st, 2019 – May 31st, 2023.


Mr. Steven Verstichel


The project aims to develop a range of complementary bio-plastics and coatings, where possible derived from readily-available agro-food by-products, with improved biodegradability properties. These developed bioplastics, coatings and biocomposites will in the study be validated for their potential use in food and personal care packaging. Finally, also their potential environmental impact and economic feasibility compared with existing products will be determined.
