A meeting was held with partners in the PLAPACK project at the Erum group headquarters in Alcoy on 19 December. The project consists of developing biodegradable, high impact resistant, low migration transparent plastic projects.
The event was organised to analyse and verify the results obtained during the first year of this three-year project, which is receiving funding from the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI).
Representatives from all the companies and entities taking part in the project were there, these being Plásticos Erum, Condensia Química, Nanobiomatters, Envaplaster, Papel Plast, Criimpla, the Technological Institute of Plastics (AIMPLAS), the Chemical Analysis, Nutrition and Bromatology Department at the University of Alicante, and the ICTP-CSIC.
After presenting the outcomes and research conducted during the first year, the first stage was considered satisfactorily concluded. Now it is the time to tackle the second phase during which new bioplastics will be developed to obtain sustainable solutions in injected and extruded products for several sectors.
