Biodolomer for LIFE to present at conference focusing on plastics in the circular economy in Helsingborg on April 26th

Åke Rosén, founder of GAIA BioMaterials, will deliver a speech at “Recyclingdagen i Helsingborg”, focusing on the additional benefits of bioplastics – Biodolomer® in particular – as compared with other materials and how it all links into the circular economy and Biodolomer for LIFE.

“Recyclingdagen i Helsingborg” is an annual event arranged by the magazine Recycling, Sweden’s leading news company covering the recycling and waste management industries from a B2B perspective. This year’s theme is “Plastics’ role in the  circular economy”.

Biodolomer® for Life and GAIA BioMaterials presented to students and public in Helsingborg

Åke Rosén, founder of GAIA BioMaterials was invited to make a presentation for upper High School students at Thorén Business School in Helsingborg, Sweden on the subject of sustainable entrepreneurship in Helsingborg April 10 2018. Local business people were also invited to attend.

Benefits from Biodolomer®

During his presentation, Mr. Rosén presented GAIA BioMaterials revolutionary new biomaterial Biodolomer® and the benefits, which are:

• Fully Biodegradable and compostable
• Based on renewable resources
• Extended shelf life of packaged fresh food
• Reduced CO and CO2 emissions when incinerated as compared to paper and plastics
• Seamlessly links into the circular economy, as it can be biodegraded into biogas and mulch

Mr. Rosén continued to talk about how all this fits neatly into the Biodolomer® for Life project, part funding via EU’s LIFE programme. The project aims to show how the loop in the circular economy can be closed by using Biodolomer® instead of current materials, given the fact that Biodolomer® is an ideal material for the circular economy.

Finally, the young entrepreneurs of Ecobox, a student company with which GAIA has had a close cooperation in developing “doggie bag” cartons for leftovers at restaurants presented their company and products. Products of course made from Biodolomer®.

Biodolomer for Life participated in panel discussion on plastic pollution

On February 26th Biodolomer® for Life was invited to participate in a panel discussion 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.

The panel discussion was held in conjunction with the screening of the new documentary “Plastic Ocean”, which highlights the rapidly growing problems with plastics in the oceans. The screening took place in Ängelholm and was attenced by leading local politicians and scientists focusing on the problems with plastic pollution.

Martin Dyberg, Strategic Communicator at NSR AB and Vera Park, was representing Biodolomer® for Life during the panel discussion, during which he shared information about the project and the circular economy, as well as showing samples of products made from Biodolomer®, such as shopping bags, waste bags, food trays and bottles, which will not only contribute to solving the problems with plastc pollution, but also help closing the loop in the circular economy by turning into mulch and biogas when in an industrial compost.

“A real eye opener regarding plastic pollution”

According to Martin Dyberg, the film was a real eye opener to the problems in the ocean caused by plastic pollution:

– I didn’t think it was this bad, the situation really is alarming, says Martin Dyberg

Biodolomer for Life would like to thank the organisers of the film screening for Inviting us – and Martin Dyberg for his excellent contributions during the panel discussion.
