Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01437

AcronymHEMPACK

Proposal titleProject on the Cycle/chain of plant fibres starting from production up the

processing and transformation into biodegradable packing products.

AbstractThe proposal is aimed at design of a complete Cycle/chain for plant fibres (hemp, linen,

kenaf, sorghum etc.). The successive stages of the cycle are: cultivation and harvesting;

processing and conversion to obtain a part-processed product for use as a raw material in

the manufacture of biodegradable packaging for "organic" food products. The Project is

proposed with a view to offering a final product/result obtained from plant sources and

biodegradable as an alternative to the throw-away plastic packaging currently widely used.

The resulting product will contribute to reduction in waste arising in both manufacture and

at the consumer level, in addition to reducing the health risks involved in processing,

handling and contact with plastic raw materials. Attainment of the final result (Step 2,

CRAFT) will be guaranteed by the strategies and work methodologies adopted for carrying

out of the project, aimed at integration between research and production and synergies

between the various European partners (the SME proposers of Step 1 and the partners to be

sought for Step 2, to complete the consortium) working in the fields of agriculture,

industry and commerce.
