Projecttitel: Innovative Difunctional Biopolymers with Enhanced Performance from Agro Feedstocks (IDEA)Projectnummer: LWV20.023Missie: KringlooplandbouwMMIP: A3 – Hergebruik zij- en reststromen
The goal of this project is to develop new, anionic functional products based on abundantly available biopolymers such as cellulose, inulin, and starch. The improved biodegradability of end products for home and personal care will prevent the emission of persistent micro-plastics to the environment. Furthermore, the use of renewable feedstocks and agro residues contributes to the total-use concept. Overall, these new products with well-defined end-of-life characteristics will significantly contribute to the goals of a biobased circular economy.
