Avfall Sverige (Waste Management Sweden)
On May 16th Åke Rosén, founder of GAIA BioMaterials, was invited to make a presentation to Avfall Sverige´s (Waste Management Sweden) Pouch Project. Reason for this request was that GAIA´s unique biodegradable and compostable biomaterial Biodolomer® is currently evaluated in a Pilot Project run by NSR and HelsingborgsHem.
At this presentation Mr Rosén presented the advantages of using Biodolomer® food waste bags compared to paper bags. One of the major differences is that the GAIA bags show considerably lower bacterial and fungal formation on the outside of the bag.
The GAIA biomaterial food waste bags Pilot Project is part of the “Biodolomer® for Life!” project – an EU-financed project within the LIFE program – which aims to investigate and develop the business opportunities for products made by the Biodolomer® material from a circular economy perspective.
The Pouch Project aims to identify which qualities a food waste bag has to incorporate, as well as increase the understanding of food waste collection and treatment chains, as this will influence the requirements on waste bags in order to present a bag that not only meet these requirements, but also meets all environmental goals.
