From May 6th to May 9th Novacart Group wil be participating to Seeds&Chips, a food innovation summit held in Milan to present the bioplastic created in their research and development lab Punto Rosso, collaborating with IIT (Italian Institute of Technology of Genoa).
Novacart Group and IIT have been working together for a long time at the Punto Rosso lab to study new eco-compatible materials to be used in the food industry, specifically products that substitute plastic. The bioplastic that is being studied is 100% green and made from paper waste from the Novacart factories. The lab focuses on this new material which will be able to function as plastic but without the use of petroleum. Moreover, the finished material will be completely biodegradable and compostable.
