Exploratory Award

Proposal number EXAW-1999-01086

Acronymbiopack

Proposal titleBIOdegradable extruded starch based plastics for PACKaging material

AbstractPackaging manufacturers cannot address the users need for biodegradable packaging

material. A diversity of users like industry, retailers, farmers and medical care are faced

with growing pressure to minimise non -degradable packaging waste . The driving force

powering the development of biodegradable materials is the sheer quantity of packaging

waste. The EC has defined this waste stream to receive priority attention. At present

there is no biodegradable alternative for disposable plastics combining all the features,

functionalities and economics to become real competitive. Current biodegradable

packaging material lacks the combination of required biodegradability, properties, shape

and product costs. This project however will develop a competitive alternative through a

novel approach introducing micro-scale blends of starches and synthetic polymers using

compatabiliser techniques. In Europe, the market potential is estimated up to about 500

000 ton/year .
