PlantPack: sustainable coating for food packaging based on starch and seaweed extracts

We would like to draw your attention to an interesting project with particular relevance to algal biotechnology and food packaging companies.

The PlantPack project concept is to produce a sustainable coating for food packaging based on starch & seaweed extracts which is:

  • Naturally derived
  • Biodegradable
  • Compostable/Recyclable

The coating will be applied to paper and cardboard packaging in the form of a spray coating. Please go to their Publishable Summary page for more information.

The PlantPack consortium consists of 7 partners from the United Kingdom, Turkey, Poland and Spain. Find out more at
