The European funded project Dibbiopack has taken the first steps in developing bioplastics, which it ultimately aims to integrate with smart packaging functionality.
The €7.7 million project will work on both bioplastics, and smart packaging technologies - to increase shelf life or add security, for instance - until its completion in 2016.
Dibbiopack has so far provided market analysis for bioplastics, and begun to identify and characterise suitable materials.
Project partners include packaging firm Innovia, Spanish technology centre Aitiip, and Slovenian white goods manufacturer Gorenje.
