Summary: The first application of the material developed in the project is a kind of "plastic board". This will be produced by the Colombian manufacturer Compañía de Empaques who are already planning the installation of a twin-screw extruder on its factory site. After successful completion of the project, they will be immediately in a position to implement the project results with the production of the newly developed compound. The product can be used, for example for such applications as the transport of flowers and perishable fruits and vegetables. In addition, the developed material can also be used for other products in the cut flower and horticulture sectors.
