The introduction of a bio-based compostable plastic alternative with comparable performance as Polypropylene will have a huge impact on the carbon footprint and circularity of these products. 
Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) can fullfil this demand but has a lack on reological properties. 
In the finished TKI AF 16007 project, this goal was achieved by adding various non-PLA components to the composition. 
In this project the consortium will develop practical applications based on these results. Moreover this project also aims to develop an ‘all-PLA’ solution for thin-walled products.
