ITC takes part in the ReusePHB project

Biobased, Compostable, Corporate News, Sustainability 27 de June de 2022

Created with the main purpose of developing two types of reusable containers that are also safe in terms of food contact, this project was developed by a consortium comprising AIMPLAS Technology Centre, the University of Valencia and ITC Packaging. One of these two containers is polypropylene (PP) based, while the other is polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) based.

ITC Packaging has taken part in the project by collaborating in the development of a new container that may be reused for a specific number of cycles, in addition to being suitable for food contact and furthermore, a packaging that is also compostable at the end of its life cycle.

With this innovative solution, we shall be working towards our goal of optimising container sustainability from three different angles:

  • Reusing: all reusable containers reduce the consumption of resources while minimising waste generation;
  • Renewable raw materials: they promote the usage of renewable sources such as the waste produced by the agricultural food industry;
  • Compostability: by reusing waste materials that are at the end of their life cycle through composting, we can obtain valuable compost to begin a new cycle.

Funded by the Valencian Innovation Agency (AVI as per its Spanish acronym), ReusePHB involves the participation of Aimplas, ITC Packaging and the University of Valencia’s Research Group COAL.
