RUN-EU Bioplastics Challenge

1 October 2021

Bioplastics are key drivers for innovation within the plastics industry and will play a leading role in the future. To reach circularity and fossil-decarbonisation formulated in the concept, it is essential to create a strong link between Bioeconomy and circular economy.

The challenge proposed is to consider bioplastics that can be used as an alternative to single-use plastic (SUPs) with particular consideration for replacing for example Personal and Protective Equipment (PPE) that has increased in usage during COVID-19 pandemic.
