Bioplastics from urban waste: the RES URBIS project presented in Brussels

Bioplastics from urban waste: the RES URBIS project presented in Brussels

Selected as a “showcase” for the Bioeconomy Week to be held from 14 to 17 November 2017 in Brussels, the RES URBIS - REsources from URban BIo-waSte project aims to produce high value added bioplastics from urban organic waste.

Coordinated by Mauro Majone, Department of Chemistry at Sapienza University of Rome, the project involves 21 partners, (companies, associations and public administrations) from 8 European countries, including the Universities of Verona and Bologna and Ca’ Foscari University of Venice.

The project is part of the research and development activities aimed at promoting the circular economy, with the dual purpose of reducing the the amount of waste sent to landfills and obtaining new organic and eco-friendly products using waste as renewable resources instead of oil.
