AIMPLAS develops biodegradable and compostable meshes

14, October, 2013

The Technological Institute of Plastic (AIMPLAS) has developed an innovative mesh for packaging citrus fruits, potatoes, onions or mollusks that, unlike conventional ones, it is not necessary to separate from organic waste for recycling.
The new mesh is biodegradable and compostable, it maintains the same properties and the same appearance as the mesh made with conventional materials, and its price is only one cent higher per kilo of product contained.
This innovative packaging is the result of research carried out by AIMPLAS within the framework of the ECOBIONET project in collaboration with the Galician firm Ecoplas, the Murcian Cristobal Meseguer, the German Tecnaro and the Belgian company OWS, and has received funding from the Program Framework for Competitiveness and Innovation (CIP).
