BioSupPack aims to deliver versatile and competitive bio-based packaging solutions based on PHA suitable for food, cosmetics, homecare and beverage sectors utilizations and to establish a new value chain including the development of logistics and management of both brewery and packaging waste

Renewable resources

Increase the use of renewable resources (beer spent grains) for PHA formulations up to >85%

PHA-based rigid packaging

Crafting highly-performing PHA-based rigid packaging with properties similar to those of conventional petrochemical plastics present in the market

Upscale the production

Upscale the production of new PHA-based products to demostration level

Plasma technology

Integration of plasma technology throughout the value chain for the pre-treatment of brew spent grains, packaging treatment and finally, for the pre-treatment of packaging waste

Sort BioSupPack waste

Development of a system able to identify and sort BioSupPack waste (>90% of BioSupPack materials identified)

BioSupPack recyclability

Ensuring BioSupPack recyclability. Mechanical and enzymatic recycling processes to reintroduce materials in the production step and/or recover carbon sources for the fermentation process (>30% carbon source supply)

Acceptance of the new BioSupPack products

Demonstrate end-user validation and acceptance of the new BioSupPack products

Value chain

Creation of the new value chain by managing both brewery and packaging waste flows

EU-standards compliance

Sustainability and EU-standards compliance assessment

Maximisation of impact

Maximisation of impact after the end of the project by exploiting results
