Conventional plastic packaging is low cost, light weight, versatile, and has good protective properties. But there are several downsides, as conventional packaging depletes our non-renewable resources and challenges are often faced in its recycling. PLA is currently one of the most affordable bio-based and biodegradable plastics, but its biodegradability, and that of many other biodegradable biopolymers, is not granted in every environment. 

In the past 36 months, the experts of the EU-funded project BIOnTop have found ways to develop new bio-copolymers, biocomposites and coating formulations for packaging of food, fruits and personal care products, as well as innovative textiles.

Interested in getting to know more about this innovative packaging? Meet our expert, Dr. Corina Reichert (Hochschule Albstadt-Sigmaringen) for breakfast. Get the chance to learn about the recent achievements in BIOnTop in the field of biopolymer coatings and ask your questions about future developments.

When: 6 December 2022 
Time: from 8:30 to 9:00 a.m.
Where: Maritim proArte Hotel Berlin

The session includes a short presentation on BIOnTop results and a Q&A session with our expert.
