CEBIMAT actively engages in collaborative Research and Development initiatives, partnering with regional and EU entities within various projects.
The main objective is twofold:
I. Investigation of microbiological processes in the composting process to improve the biodegradation of bioplastic materials in this environment.
II. Study and modeling of the biodegradation behavior of bioplastic materials in real composting processes.
The COMBOOST project aims to overcome plastic packaging recycling barriers by focusing on composting, offering innovative solutions to eliminate microplastics in compost. By enhancing the composting process with specific microorganisms, it accelerates bioplastics' degradation, curbing their entry into natural and agricultural environments and preventing potential inclusion in the food chain.This approach not only ensures faster plastic degradation but also minimizes landfilling, leading to economic and environmental benefits. Moreover, the resulting high-quality compost undergoes rigorous safety assessments, ensuring its suitability for soil regeneration without any associated toxicity or contamination issues in agricultural or gardening applications.
