The Multibiosol project focuses on the development of cost-effective and truly biodegradable plastic films (“third generation”) for agriculture that will allow sustainable and efficient farming practices. In this sense, we expect to achieve the following concrete results:

  1. 100% waste reduction: Environmentally harmful or expensive disposal waste management methods will simply no longer be necessary because of the complete biodegradability of plastics (OK biodegrabable SOIL label) after being tilled on soil.
  2. CO2 emissions reduction by 50%, since our biodegradable plastics will not use fossil fuels as raw materials and emit less carbon emissions during production. This number also takes into account the cuts in transportation and incineration related to waste management, as well as carbon capture from trees and crops which extract CO2 from the atmosphere as they grow.
  3. Competitive market solution for biodegradable plastics: the price of our plastics will be competitive, particularly if we take into account that (a) there will be significant savings for farmers in waste management, (b) biodegradable plastics demand is expected to increase and its cost price to be lower, and (c) farmers will be able to sell a better (healthier) product by pleasing a larger demand for sustainability, adding value and therefore obtaining higher revenues.
  4. Soil quality improvement by 15% since Oligo elements will act as natural fertilizers and petro-chemical plastic contamination will be avoided. 
  5. 10% improvement in crop quality due to the use of biodegradable mulching film, bags and clips.
  6. Increased awareness and dissemination of sustainable practices on waste management among stakeholders (particularly on EU relevant legislation and objectives).
