Fishing industry by-products and municipal solid waste transformed into bioplastics

The European DAFIA Project, coordinated by AIMPLAS, provides the automotive and food packaging industries with sustainable solutions by developing biopolymers, flame-retardant additives and barrier packaging. This project is in line with circular economy criteria because it involves obtaining new resources from marine and municipal waste that respect the environment and human health.

AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Centre, is the coordinator of the European DAFIA Project, whose aim has been to recover municipal solid waste and marine rest raw materials from the fishing industry in order to obtain new, high value-added products and additives. The results have included flame retardants that provide an alternative to halogenated models, sustainable barrier packaging and edible coatings that extend the shelf life of food, and chemical substances that can be used to produce new plastics from renewable resources.
