Residual Biomasses for Eco-compatible and Sustainable Food Packaging
11-12 September 2019
This two-day workshop will highlight approaches and projects aiming to produce more sustainable materials, such as biodegradable and bio-based polymers for food packaging.
With this workshop we highlight one particular aspect of the PROLIFIC project. PROLIFIC seeks new technological and industrial solutions to transform agrifood waste into food products, animal feeds, packaging materials and cosmetic ingredients.
Illycaffè as partner of the PROLIFIC consortium hosts this workshop to trigger the discussion about the potential of biorefinery concepts based on residual biomasses. We bring together research and industry to exchange on strategies and promising paths to convert food residues into valuable ingredients and components for food packaging material.
Participation is free of charge. But registration is mandatory.
