EU joint project BIOnTop - Research and development of more sustainable packaging concepts - Article in magazine Plastverarbeiter
BIOnTop’s partner Albstadt-Sigmaringen University has published an article about the project at Plastverarbeiter magazine. This publication supports plastics processors in designing production in a cost and resource-efficient way as well as recognizing new market opportunities at an early stage. Innovative products and production strategies are also presented, as are concrete practice problems.
The article gives an overview of the project, focused on polylactic acid material, explaining how different teams work on coating technqiues as well as on composites to increase the barrier and mechanical properties of polylactic acid based films and textiles to develop an environmentally friendly alternative to the plastic packaging currently produced from crude oil.
