A European consortium of 12 different R&D entities and companies have partnered within the framework of the socalled HyperBioCoat project. The project will investigate and develop a new biobased and biodegradable coating for rigid and flexible plastic packaging. This coating, applied to biodegradable packaging, will improve the barrier properties, which are actually insufficient for the application. The new biobased coating will increase the product’s shelf life and contribute to a reduction of CO 2 emissions, Based Industries Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 720736. According to Dr. Stefan Hanstein, coordinator of the project, “the challenge of this project is to impart superior barrier properties to biodegradable packaging materials. This innovation will be carried out by combining the high-performance ORMOCER® concept with oligomeric hemicellulose feedstock. The result will have an impact on the demand of the packaging industry for biodegradable and biobased packaging materials”.
