Summary: The first application of the material developed in the project is the production of a kind of "plastic board", which will be produced by the Colombian manufacturer Compañía de Empaques. The company is already planning the installation of a twin-screw extruder on its factory site. After successful completion of the project, they will be directly in the position to implement the project results with the production of the newly developed compound. The product can be used, for example, in the export of flowers and perishable fruits and vegetables. In addition, the developed material can also be used for other products for the flowering and horticulture sector.
