Dear Readers,

Welcome to the first edition of the ViSS newsletter! We are thrilled to embark on this journey with you, exploring the developments of a new bio-based plastic in Europe.

ViSS is set to revolutionize the food packaging industry with PHBV, a biopolymer that is both biodegradable and recyclable. Collaborating with 15 partners, the project aims to create a circular value chain, converting industrial food residues into this innovative material.

PHBV provides a safe and environmentally, economically and socially sustainable alternative to conventional fossil-based plastics used in food packaging. With this approach, ViSS is committed to achieving the following impacts by 2030:

  • reduce CO2 emissions in the production of bio-based plastics by more than half;
  • recirculate 288.95 kt of biomass;
  • avoid the use of 2.2 kt of hazardous substances.

Interested in learning more about the project? Then have a look at the presentation video and a flyer that you will find in this newsletter! Explore the latest news, events, and initiatives from the project.
