Replacing single-use plastics

Project title: Technical challenges associated with reducing or replacing single use plastic packaging within the food and drink industry
Member Funded Research project number: 147091

Why are we undertaking this project?

Plastic packaging is widely used for food and drink products. There is growing awareness of the environmental impact that some plastics can have when discarded irresponsibly – most noticeably with ‘single-use plastics’. There is a need to reduce or remove these plastics, but in doing so businesses often face significant technical challenges.


What are we doing as part of this project?

Testing alternative materials for a range of food/drink applications and producing practical case studies. We’ll also explore consumer understanding of recycling and their acceptance of alternative packaging materials.
