22 members of the Helsingborg Landborgen Rotary club made a study visit to GAIA’s factory. Åke Rosén told the story of an entrepreneur’s journey with focus on the story of Biodolomer, a bio-based, biodegradable and compostable material. Åke talked about the cooperation with EU and how the project is trying to influence the development of policies within the plastics business to make sure bio-based material is not percieved as traditional plastics. The group was very interested and as consumers they asked a lot of questions. The visit ended with a factory tour to see the production.

During the three days alltogether 500 decision makers was reached by the information why biobased plastics is a better choice (compared to fossil) – already today.
Åke Rosén, the founder of GAIA BioMaterials was one of the speakers telling the story of the uniqueness of Biodolomer. Åke also marked the importance of being part of EU LIFE15 program for financial support to develop Biodolomer to become fully renewable, biodegradable and compostable.
