The national CDTI project “Plapack” has been accomplished during the second half of 2014.
Thanks to the PLAPACK Project, a new generation of natural, compostable and biodegradable plastics, suitable for food contact and other applications, has been developed with a low migration and high flexibility.
These bioplastics are a modification of polylactic acid (PLA), so they have a lower environmental impact than the materials currently used. In its formulation, have been used additives, provided by Condensia, of high compatibility with the polymer.
From this new material, different plastic products have been produced, from chothes hangers, to containers for the food sector.
