INRA Scientists Create First Agro-Waste Food Trays from Oil and Dairy Liquid Effluent

This project was started to help provide the foodservice industry with customizable, eco-efficient and biodegradable packaging.

A team of scientists from European agriculture research institute INRA have completed its four-year EU EcoBioCap project to create the first biodegradable food trays from oil and dairy liquid effluent. This project was started to help provide the foodservice industry with customizable, eco-efficient and biodegradable packaging.

Now that the scientists have completed this project, they are turning their focus over to a new project entitled H2020 NoAW. With this project, they will aim to create a circular economy approach for converting agro-waste into bio-energy, bio-fertilizers, bio-packaging and bio-molecules.

Scientists from European agriculture research institute INRA have completed a four-year EU EcoBioCap project to develop the first biodegradable trays from oil and dairy liquid effluent.

The trays are composed of bio-polyester PHS (PHBV) (from liquid effluent from the oil and dairy industry) and lignocellulosic fraction (WSF) from dry fractionation of wheat straw (grinding and sorting).
