Upcycling food waste & side streams to value added packaging
Upcycling has been increasingly spotlighted as providing new avenues for creating value-added products – the packaging sector no less.
As brands come under intense scrutiny on their environmental credentials, there has been a surge of interest in start-ups focused on new technologies and food waste approaches. One area that investors are looking at is certainly on Upcycling Food Waste & side streams to Packaging.
Such new innovations include production of flexible films to food trays made from waste crustacean shells, agriculture wastes, expired dairy products, spent grain from beer making process.
With an endless supply of discarded food and agriwaste, these innovations come at a cost that no other biobased materials can match and have been proven to be home compostable !
What is the most ideal sustainable material that can be derived from streams of food waste ? What technologies are applicable in upcycling any protein-derived waste ?
What challenges exist to scale up production ?
Striving for a truly closed-loop economy with zero waste, CMT’s UPCYCLING FOOD WASTE TO PACKAGING virtual event gathers experts to discuss how different industries can work together and exchange materials that otherwise would be discarded.
