Waste2BioComp - Converting organic waste into sustainable bio-based components
Waste2BioComp project aims to demonstrate relevant scale production of bio-based products and materials, as alternatives to replace traditional materials with high environmental footprint, using innovative manufacturing technologies.
The project integrates all stages in the bio-based products lifecycles, starting from R&I activities regarding the sourcing of feedstocks for the development of bio-based precursors and intermediate materials, smart inkjet printing techniques and smart manufacturing technologies for final products, and the final demonstrators, which will entail the production on a relevant scale of the following bio-based products: shoe sole materials with different hardness; three-layered shoe insoles; plastic films/packaging with different flexibilities; social face masks; fashion garments printed with bio-based inks; leather and textile shoes printed with bio-based inks; paper for packaging printed with bio-based inks.
For Waste2Biocomp, Magellan is in charge of the Communication, Dissemination, Training, Exploitation and Innovation management.
The project will run for 36 months, and it will be constituted by 13 partners from France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.
