European project BIOBOTTLE: biodegradable packages for dairy products

26 August 2014

The Technological Institute of Plastic (AIMPLAS) is coordinating research carried out by seven companies and technological centers to develop new materials to manufacture biodegradable packages for dairy products. The project is called BIOBOTTLE and its 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.
Milk bottles and bags are packages which can be use only once, so a big volume of waste is generated. In addition, an exhaustive high temperature washing is required in its recycling (News Item AIMPLAS, 8 July 2014).
