Online workshop - Upcycling bio-plastics of food & drink packaging

On 20 October 2021 UPLIFT, upPE-T and, PRESERVE organised an online joint workshop, “Upcycling bio-plastic of food & drink packaging.

The three initiatives are EU-funded projects under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.

During the session, they presented their work to transform food and drink packaging into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value, ensuring that micro-plastics are avoided.

The event gathered a wide range of experts, where around 150 attendees could enjoy different approaches to implement new sustainable solutions for transforming food and drink packaging into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value, ensuring that micro-plastics are avoided.

The workshop also counted on the presence of Hasso von Pogrell, managing director of European Bioplastics, and Aleksandra Branković, senior researcher for the Institute for Development and Innovation in Belgrade.

A final discussion on the importance of clustering has also been held, with different point of views coming from project participants and invited speakers.

The aim of this event has been to build a high-level meeting point for stakeholders across Europe to showcase initiatives and solutions for the food industry packaging that cannot be recycled.

You can now watch again the workshop on YouTube.
