Plant-based material to replace plastic

Avocados are particularly delicate—they can go from ripe to rotten in a matter of hours. That could change thanks to a new plant-based material, details of which have been published in the scientific journal Nature Food. Here we explore how this packaging aims to extend the shelf life of food and replace the use of plastic.



We recycle plastic and tires to obtain sustainable materials

SusChemPol project will generate more sustainable chemical recycling strategies to obtain value-added molecules and monomers from waste.



Plastic that decomposes in the Sun

The trillions of pieces of plastic floating on the surface of our oceans weigh the equivalent of 27 Eiffel Towers and will take hundreds of years to degrade. A team of scientists has created a polymer capable of decomposing in a week when exposed to sun and air.




Plastics are one of the most difficult pollutants to remove. Therefore, looking for new ways to extend its useful life is essential. From cement substitutes to asphalt layers, new materials made from residues of these polymers are already beginning to be used in the construction sector.
