Ambition  

BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE will deliver sustainable strategies and solutions for bio-based plastics to support the EU-Plastic Strategy and promote circularity in the economy. It serves not only as a research project but also as an intervention that takes into account the transformations triggered by a new awareness of bio-based plastics. BIO-Plastics EUROPE aims for a participatory research and innovation process. 

 

Objectives for 2021  

BIO-PLASTICS EUROPE has seen a successful 2020 where it strengthened online communications, developed and started testing first bio-based and biodegradable materials, established a network and watched it grow to include more than 1000 stakeholders. In 2021, BIO-PLASTIC S EUROPE will strengthen the stakeholder network by organizing more workshops on bio-based and biodegradable materials. They are also aiming to make a Life-cycle Assessment (LCA) report available, as well as preliminary safety protocols and business models.
