Project to build potato-based bioplastics plant in Italy

Italian biotechnology company Bio-on (Bologna; www.bio-on.it) has teamed up with Pizzoli, the country’s largest operator in the potato sector, to build a PHA bioplastic production plant based on waste products from potato processing. The facility, which will be Italy’s first PHA plant, will have a 2,000 t/y capacity, expanding to 4,000 t/y in the future. Following a EUR 220,000 study phase, the project is expected to take two years, with production commencing in 2017. More
