Banus

The aim with the EU-project was to define multilayer structures for food packaging applications, and evaluate their properties as functional barriers, using conventional polymers to achieve functional barrier properties that may open new potential markets for recycled materials in Europe.

Challenge:
The Banus approach was to ensure highly efficient functional barriers in order to guarantee food safety, even when using recycled plastics and paper coming from non-authorised recycling processes in food packaging structures.

Solution: The substitution of virgin material by recycled material in some selected types of packages, in order to develop more environmental friendly food packaging structures.

Partners:
The project consortium consists of five small and medium partners, two associations and two research centres: RISE Bioeconomy, Bobino Plastique, MTM Plastics, Delta Print & Packaging, Bumaga and Heliomur Scoop, Fundacion Cluster Agroalimentario de la Region de Murcia, Asociacion Valenciana de Empresarios de Plasticos (AVEP) and AIMPLAS as the project co-ordinator.

RISE Bioeconomy is the leader of WP3 - Case study 2: Flexible paperplastic laminated multilayer structure and WP4 - Case study 3: Coated paperboard and a partner in WP6 - Economic, regulatory and environmental studies.

This project received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration with a planned duration of 24 months and a budget of €1.1 million.
