BIO-BOARD will deliver sustainable coating material and process for paper and paper-board based packaging. After validating the resulting laminates for their suitability as packaging material to replace the currently used fossil fuel based plastics (principally PE) in laminate packaging materials for both solid and liquid food products as well as the resulting facilitation of the recycling process, the uptake of the novel BIO-BOARD system among the packaging industry holds benefits for increased environmental protection, consumer satisfaction and demand in an increasingly environmentally aware market.
