Biodolomer for Life will participate in Plastic Ocean Panel discussion in Ängelholm on February 26th

Plastic Ocean

On February 26th Biodolomer® for Life has been invited to participate during a panel discussion, during the screening of the film “Plastic Ocean”, regarding the growing problem of plastic pollution in the oceans, as fossil plastics add to the plastic sea belts, as well as the microplastics content, causing great harm to both environment and wildlife.

Martin Dyberg, Strategic Communicator at NSR AB and Vera Park, is representing Biodolomer® for Life during the panel discussion and will share information about the project and the circular economy, as well as the benefits with Biodolomer®.

The panel discussion is taking place as part of the screening of the documentary film “Plastic Ocean”, which addresses the problems associated with 10 million tons of plastics ending up in the environment – in the ocean and on land – every year.

Interested in the film?

The film is screened on February 27th in Hörsalen, Ängelholms bibliotek, at 19:00; free entrance, no pre-booking.

Biodolomer® for Life exhibits in Helsingborg this Saturday (2018-02-10)

Biodolomer® for Life has been invited to exhibit during the Event “Den odlande stadsbasaren” (The cultivating city bazaar) at Oxhallen in Helsingborg on Saturday February 10th.

The event is part of a pilot project to promote “innovation for sustainable urban development in Helsingborg, Landskrona and Stockholm” and aims to explore the opportunities associated with green workplaces and companies, as sustainable and integral neighborhoods through urban cultivation is a strong trend in large cities globally.

During the event Biodolomer for Life will present how products made from Biodolomer® can help further this aim through the innovative nature of the material, which is fully biodegradable biomaterial made with renewable ingredients. This to realize the goal of creating the circular economy.

The exhibition will be open  between 12:00 – 16:00 and the event between 12:00 and 19:00

Biodolomer for Life hope to see you there!

Adress to the event:

Oxhallen
Bredgatan 25, 25225 Helsingborg, Sweden

December 26th Biodolomer® for Life will be at Lindab Arena for Rögle – Linköping game

Biodolomer® for Life – via NSR and Vera Park – has been invited to attend the SHL-game Rögle BK – Linköping on December 26th at Lindab Arena, in order to emphasize the club’s commitment to the environment and sustainable living.

From 13:45, when the Arena opens to the public, until 15:15, when the game starts, we will have an exhibition stand and inform about the Biodolomer for Life project, in particular:

  • The scope and aims of the Biodolomer for Life project, as well as what LIFE is.
  • Biodolomer and how it differs from plastics and other bioplastics
  • Biodolomer compared with other materials, such as paper, fossil plastics and other bioplastics

A wide range of sample products made from Biodolomer will be on display, showing how fossil plastics – as well as other materials – can be replaceed by Biodolomer.

We invite everyone interested in hockey and the environment to come visit us before face-off.

Biodolomer for Life participated at Vera Park event

On November 28th NSR AB and Vera Park presented the results from a survey undertaken by the University of Lund on behalf of Vera Park at Lindab Arena in Ängelholm. Vera Park also presented the new website that was launched just days before, including the section where the Biodolomer for Life project was presented.

Biodolomer® for Life presented at sustainability event in Helsingborg

Biodolomer® for Life (hereafter Biodolomer for Life) has participated in the sustainability event “Framtidsjakten” (“Future Hunt”) in Helsingborg.

“Framtidsjakten” is an annual event that focuses on raising awareness among the students at three of Helsingborg’s upper secondary high schools with regards to sustainability based on a number of different criterias.

As part of the ambition to raise the awareness among the students concerning the circular economy and biodegradable biomaterials, representatives from Biodolomer for Life had been invited to make a presentation to students representing all the participating teams from each school.

During two half hour sessions, the students learned more about the LIFE program and how it supports environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects throughout the EU, one of which being the Biodolomer for Life project.

They were also shown how Biodolomer for Life intended to close the loop in the circular economy, in which the project members had very specific roles to play: GAIA BioMaterials responsible for developing a biomaterial – Biodolomer® (hereafter Biodolomer) that is not only renewable and biodegradable, but also generates biogas when composted, the municipality of Båstad responsible for identifying cost efficient ways of implementing the material into everyday operations by looking at the overall economic implications, and finally NSR AB responsible for ensuring that the biomaterial can be handled together with the rest of the organic waste stream to ensure that the composting is conducted in the most efficient way possible in order to ensure that all the products from the process (heating, CO2, biogas and mulch) are collected and used as input for generating new raw materials to be used as input in the production of Biodolomer.

Finally, Students were also told about the difference between not only plastics and biomaterials, but also what separates different biomaterials from each other, and why it is important to understand how these react when exposed to various conditions and situations. For example, not all bioplastics are biodegradable – unlike Biodolomer®, which is fully biodegradable – and the amount of CO2 released when incinerated is much higher for paper, as compared to both plastics and bioplastics, with Biodolomer being the material with by far the lowest CO2 levels.

Biodolomer® for Life hosted SPF Seniorerna Annetorp Glumslöv

On October 18th the local Annetorp Glumslöv chapter of SPF Seniorerna paid Gaia BioMaterials and the Biodolomer® for Life (hereafter Biodolomer for Life) project a visit to learn more about the company, biodegradable biomaterials made from renewable sources and Biodolomer for Life.

During the presentation GAIA BioMaterials founder Åke Rosén told visitors about the Biodolomer for Life project that the company is running jointly together with Båstad Municipality and NSR AB as part of the EUs LIFE program, with the purpose of finding solutions on how to close the loop for the circular economy, as well as the LIFE program itself and how it supports environmental, nature conservation and climate action projects throughout the EU, one of which being the Biodolomer for Life project. Mr. Rosén also showed examples of products made from the company’s unique biomaterial Biodolomer® and explained the qualities that makes it stand out, as compared to competing materials such as different sorts of plastics, other biomaterials and paper.

The visit also included a tour inside the production facility, where production process from raw materials – via pellets and film – to finished products were shown.

The Biodolomer for Life project wishes to thank SPF Seniorerna Annetorp Glumslöv for stopping by and hope that they found their visit to GAIA BioMaterials interesting.
