“Plastics in the Bioeconomy” – Executive Summary
This report was commissioned by LBNet, a Phase I BBSRC NIBB, and 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 Plastics 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.
