Project ALGRIPLAST

Logo natureplast

ALGRIPLAST: recovery of algae, cereal and vegetable derivatives and by-products as matrixes or fillers for biodegradable applications in circular economy.

OBJECTIVES

The Algriplast project aims to develop new materials and biodegradable plastic finished products by valorising derivatives and co-products from agro-food productions. The work will focus in particular on the research for new functionalities that can be provided by the use of these by-products and derivatives in the plastics industry.

  • Design of new bioplastic formulations from biomasses or derivatives
  • Development of new rigid, semi-rigid and flexible applications
  • Control of lifetime by modulating the kinetics of biodegradation
  • Implementation of industrial processes for the production of prototypes
  • Environmental impact study using life cycle assessment
