We recycle and upcycle food packaging

PRESERVE is a European research project that develops solutions to improve the recyclability of food packaging . 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 developing bio-based food packaging by enhancing bio-coatings in order to improve packaging recyclability. At the same time, PRESERVE makes sure that these materials can be upcycled into new containers and textiles 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.
