Great news for all USABLE PACKAGING partners: A new report by the World  Economic Forum has listed “Bioplastics for a circular economy” No 1 in a list of the Top Ten emerging technologies of 2019.  An international Steering Committee of leading technology experts worked to identify some of the breakthrough innovations that are expected to radically impact the global social and economic order.

“Biodegradable plastics can ease the problem of plastic debris killing wildlife, releasing toxic compounds and entering our bodies”, the report says. “Many hurdles must be overcome before the new plastics can be widely used.  Still, the emerging methods offer a perfect example of how greener solvents and more effective biocatalysts can contribute to generating a circular economy in a major industry.”
