SEALIVE

Strategies of circular economy and advanced bio-based solutions to keep our lands and seas alive from plastic contamination

Term

October 1st, 2019 – September 31st, 2023

Project

The project aims to combine its advanced bioplastic solutions with cutting-edge processing technology and develop sustainable business models for their use. By improving current bio-based formulas as well as developing new solutions made from aquatic biomass and organic waste, SEALIVE’s products will avoid traditional plastic ending up as waste. The new solutions will have increased durability so they last longer, better design enabling more efficient recycling and increased biodegradability so they break down after their use.
