About 311 million tons of petroleum-based plastic materials are produced in Europe every year and all types of packaging account for nearly 40% of this. There is an urgent need for a new era in the field of packaging in order to make them CO2 neutral and deriving from sustainable, biodegradable and suitable for composting sources. The project aims at looking for methods to replace fossil based non-degradable plastic polymers used as barrier coatings in paper and cardboard packaging with bio-based biodegradable polymers from wood biomass.
