Descripción: The main objective of the GREENPACK Consortium is producing prototypes of fully recyclable 100% PET trays for food preservation also by using recycled PET (RPET). PET trays will be designed for low-oxygen application and barrier properties will be based on specifically designed additives. The target is a mono-material fully-transparent tray which could be recycled for producing new trays.
A secondary goal of the project is designing and dissemination of a dedicated recycling model, inspired towards the replication and spreading of the recycling model of the 100% PET soft drink bottles, in the post-consumer phase, adapting its characteristics to the specific food package features.
