TERMINUS aims to develop smart multi-layer packaging designed with intrinsic biodegradability properties. In order to rise to this ambitious yet realistic challenge, the TERMINUS consortium gathers under the same roof and for the first time expertise in multi-layer manufacturing, polymer science and biocatalyst design.
Partners from the whole value chain, from plastic and packaging manufacturers to recyclers will ensure that the multi-layer materials produced fulfil the requirements set by regulatory authorities and by the market. This will eventually ensure a fast and efficient transition from the laboratory to the market. Multi-layer packaging, adapted to today’s and tomorrow’s needs, will be recyclable for the first time ever.
Norner will contribute in several WP’s by expertise on polymer development, barrier packaging materials, modification and processing of polymers, packaging material testing, and chemical analytical capabilities.
Project consortium includes 12 other European partners:
SIGMA Clermont (Coordinator)
Centre Technique Industriel de la Plasturgie et des Composites
