A packaging revolution | EcoBioCap: a safer, greener kind of food packaging
Description

Food packaging can be very harmful and often contaminates the food it contains. With EU funding, researchers at France’s National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) have developed EcoBioCap packaging using waste from the agri-food industry. It is 100% safe, preserves perishable foodstuffs and has virtually no environmental impact. 5 million tonnes of packaging are discarded each year in France, less than 1% of which is biodegradable The EcoBioCap project has a budget of €4.2 million, of which €3 million was provided by the EU over 4 years 16 partners from 8 countries, including 6 private companies Market potential of €110 billion
