With the support of the EU LIFE financial instrument, Båstad Municipality is the lead part and GAIA Biomaterials holds the expertise in biomaterials. NSR is testing the material in biogas production by using the biomaterial in food waste collections from households and restaurants. Unlike traditional plastics do from fossil oil, the content does not need to be separated from the package. The purpose of the commitment of Båstad Municipality is to contribute to a good environment, less waste and of course to demonstrate clear leadership in the area of the circular economic perspective. Båstad Municipality goal is to become one of Sweden’s top 10 environmental municipalities.
