Published on 05/05/19 · Categorised as LBNet, News & Updates

This report was commissioned by the LBNet, a phase I NIBB, and the  newly funded Biomass Biorefinery Network (BBNet), a Phase II BBSRC NIBB

This report summarises:

  • The current status of compostable plastics;
  • How the market for compostable plastics could grow;
  • What the most suitable biomass resources are that could be used as feedstock; and
  • How bio-plastics could contribute to targets for plastic packaging as set out by the UK Plastic Pact for 2025 along with a strategy for how this could be achieved.

The focus of this study is on consumer-based single-use packaging
