Aimplas: New Method for Food Packaging PLA Production

The Technological Institute of Plastics Aimplas, Valencia, Spain, along with eleven other enterprises and technological European centers, has launched the InnoREX project, financed by the Seventh Framework Program funds and coordinated by the German Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT). Also during the 42 project months two multinationals in the sector are involved as observers such as the French multinational Roquette and the Finnish multinational Huhtamaki.

This ambitious project seeks to develop a new technology of PLA production (polylactic acid) that will, among other benefits, improve the homogeneity of production and exclude the use of metallic catalysts that were necessary until now. Furthermore, it is expected to obtain energy savings and a single monolayer packaging that may be processed by both polymer processing, the extrusion and injection technology.
