Life MULTIBIOSOL (LIFE14 ENV/ES/00048)

The general objective of this project is to demonstrate that sustainability and efficiency of agricultural practices can be achieved by introducing an innovative, economically viable and fully biodegradable plastic that eliminates waste completely.

1. Elimination of waste management: Our biodegradable plastics will break down naturally on land (with OK biodegradable SOIL certification) so removal and transportation of the waste will no longer be needed. Costs of management for farmers/growers and the environmental problems associated with landfills and incineration will be erradicated.

2. Development of new biodegradable plastics films with a very low carbon footprint impact: Conventional agricultural plastic films have an enormous environmental impact in terms of CO₂ emissions during their life-cycle. We will significantly reduce this impact, since our biodegradable polymers and additives will be made from renewable raw materials. Also, biomass for these biodegradable plastics will come from trees and crops which extract CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow.

3. Improvement of soil and product quality: Multibiosol bioplastics will not only avoid toxic and harmful components of conventional plastics, but also they will add value through Oligo Elements (trace minerals as natural fertilizers) and micro-perforation functionalities that contribute to agriculture à la carte and help improve the health of the soil and the quality of the final product.
