Inspired to contribute with solutions for a true circular economy in Europe


About the project

The EU has set itself ambitious targets in the Green Deal.

The use of alternative fossil-free raw materials, such as bio-based or recycled raw materials, as well as recyclable and/or biodegradable materials, plays a central role in achieving these circularity goals.

REBIOLUTION aims to design and synthetize novel fully bio-based and biodegradable polyester blends based on 2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) and other bio-based monomers fit for specific product-market applications.




  • Develop fully bio-based, biodegradable and recyclable plastics for paper food packaging and agricultural films
  • Raw material sourcing from annually renewable sources
  • Biodegradable in home and industrial composting, soil and aquatic environments
  • Recyclable
  • Enhancing circularity in applications where mechanical recycling is not possible – food paper packaging and agricultural films
  • Safe to use

Establish well-defined properties to improve sustainability, using non-toxic substances, reducing the consumption of non-renewable resources while ensuring recyclability and biodegradability, both in home composting and in soil, fresh water and the marine environment.

Interview with Kai Siegenthaler

How do the management procedures established, promote transparency and efficiency in project management throughout the duration of the project? The transparency among the project partners is realized by regular exchange meetings on various levels of the project organization. Apart from that, the project documentation is done via a shared platform.
