BioPost aim is to develop sustainable environmentally friendly plastics to address the real-world problems of current plastics. BioPost will focus on using commercially available and indigenous novel biodegradable polymers and develop composites suitable for packaging applications and evaluate their end-of-life options; separation from mixed plastic waste, recyclability, compostability and biodegradability under standard industrial conditions. This stakeholder event is at the start of the project and will look to get feedback on aspects on labelling of compostables products, where compostable products be used and identifying what policies are needed to support compostables.
