RESEARCH PROJECT: Bio2Bottle
Novel biodegradable bottles made from bioplastics with high bio-based content and high barrier
Together with four other partners, FKuR Kunststoff GmbH is conducting research into bio-based and recyclable plastics. The aim of the joint project “Bio2Bottle” is to develop a bio-based, recyclable material for the production of bottles.
During the project, the value chain from additive synthesis and material development to the production of plastic bottles will be covered. The plastic bottles should be suitable for keeping innovative cleaning agents and biological agricultural soil additives, meet high standards and at the same time be biodegradable and recyclable. In particular, the recyclability of the bottles is being investigated and evaluated experimentally using various methods, since the plastics currently available from renewable raw materials have too high a permeability for this application and therefore do not meet all the requirements.
