BM#11/20 - Disposable tableware and biodegradable packaging

Product description


Bio-based and biodegradable packaging based on apple pomace is a highly promising alternative to existing conventional plastic products in order to reduce environmental pollution caused by plastic waste. Its relevance will become even greater when single-use plastic products will be forbidden due to EU legislation by 2021. Disposable tableware and biodegradable packaging made from apple pomace is likely to be accepted by consumers due to their increased awareness of this topic and their increasing need for better alternatives to conventional plastic.
