Spain Invents Bioplastics From Horticultural Waste

It’s made from fruit and vegetable waste and its use should be authorized within the next five years.

Coordinator of The Circular Lab, Zacarías Torbado said:

“the stepping stone for new developments based on the circular design. It is also already an example of what packaging will be like in the future,”.

Now is the time for the industry’s approval and certifications of compliance to be granted. The plastic products resulting from this development could hit the market in about five years.
