Description:

Food waste management and pollution by petroleum-based plastics are two significant global challenges. In order to mitigate the impacts of these two challenges, the BioLaMer project aims to demonstrate the possibility of using innovative biorefinery technologies for the production of biopolymers. The Hei-Lab team (COFAC) will be co-responsible for the study of societal impacts, namely the study of opportunities and barriers to market introduction of these new products, for example by studying their acceptance at consumer level.
