We recycle and upcycle plastic packaging

Asasas

PRESERVE is a European research project that develops solutions to improve the recyclability of plastics. The 4-year project started in January 2021 and receives funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 multiannual financial framework.

PRESERVE is committed to develop bio-based plastic packaging and textiles by enhancing bio-based coatings in order to improve their recyclability and, at the same time, make sure these materials can be upcycled into new packaging for non-food applications.

PRESERVE will develop 10 common packaging items that are 100% based on renewable resources with a minimal environmental impact and improved recyclability in order to easily reintroduce the materials in a circular economy.

The consortium is formed by 26 partners from 10 countries. It covers the whole supply & value chain and brings together comprehensive interdisciplinary pockets of knowledge, assessing the performance of developed solutions and upscale them to introduce new viable circular bio-based packaging solutions into the market.

Are you interested in collaborating?

The PRESERVE project is keen on new collaborations with partners from other EU-funded projects and platforms, both on technological aspects as well as to organise joint activities such as information sharing, events or initiatives that can build on project results. Let’s explore our potential synergies for a cleaner future.
