The project

Environmental sustainability in plastic for agricultural and food use


In agriculture, plastic mulch films are used to improve crop growth, save water, and reduce the need for chemicals. However, there is a risk of residual mulch film being left in the field during farming activities, especially when the film is too thin and hard to recover.

The agricultural plastics market accounts for 3.2% of the total plastic demand. As the world’s food supply is expected to increase by 50% by 2050, the demand for plastics, especially for mulch films (currently mostly made of non-biodegradable plastics like PE), will also rise significantly.

The project

The project aims to establish well-defined properties to enhance sustainability, utilizing non-toxic substances, reducing non-renewable resource consumption, and ensuring recyclability and biodegradability at the same time, both in home composting as well as in soil, freshwater and marine environments.

ReBIOlution strives to enhance functionality while ensuring the safety of products and processes. The project is dedicated to eliminating barriers to market penetration by offering a drop-in replacement that facilitates a smooth transition for the downstream value chain. This approach avoids the need for additional investments in plastic processing lines and reduces extra costs for consumers.
