SEALIVE

Strategies of circular Economy and Advanced bio-based solutions to keep our Lands and seas allVE from plastics contamination

On January 31st, 2024, Zibel collaborated with AKTI Project and Research Centre and Isotech Ltd for an innovative event titled ‘Biobased Plastics for Marine and Terrestrial Applications’. This event formed part of the Horizon 2020-funded European innovation project ‘SEALIVE’, or ‘Strategies of Circular Economy and Advanced bio-based solutions to keep our Lands and seas alIVE from plastics contamination’.

This event looked at the potential of products which are wholly or partially made from biological resources, and their potential as a viable and eco-friendly alternative to plastic. This project in particular focuses on bio-based plastics, referring to plastic products which are bio-based rather than made completely from synthetic materials. This means that at least some proportion of the products will be less likely to persist in the environment, which is the main issue with regular plastics.

The aim of this project is to bring at least partly bio-based plastic solutions to the commercial markets and provide feasible and more environmentally friendly alternatives to common single-use plastic products. The domino effect of this research would be the reduction of plastic pollution both in the sea and on land, while contributing to the circular economy. 

The knowledge transfer event invited local key stakeholders from Government, Private Industry and Academics to get first hand contact with these biobased solutions.
