Biodolomer for Life presented to Procurement Specialists in Båstad

On July 20th Båstad Municipality hosted a seminar focusing on how public procurement can contribute to a fossil fuel and plastic free future by putting environmental requirements into their specifications.

One of the questions discussed was whether the suppliers were ready to meet such requirements, which was answered with a resounding “Yes”, by Åke Rosén from GAIA BioMaterials, one of the partners of the “Biodolomer for Life” project together with Båstad Municipality and NSR.

During his presentation, Åke Rosén showed that there already exist commercially viable alternatives to plastics – such as Gaia’s unique biomaterial Biodolomer, which is made from renewable resources and fully biodegradable – when you look at the whole picture, rather than just the purchase price.

Using Biodolomer as the starting point, the Biodolomer for Life project is focused on finding ways for closing the circular economy loop, thus making each step in the circle interact with the ones before and after, to ensure the most efficient use of both natural resources and public funds. This makes for a whole new approach, not only in terms of public procurement, but also when it comes to cooperation between departments and external partners.

Gaia Biomaterials at the Meeting Point Urban Magma

GAIA BioMaterials founder Åke Rosen was invited to present at Meeting Point Urban Magma, an annually re-occurring meeting place about the challenges cities face within energy, eco-system services, water and waste management; especially the tools necessary to solve these challenges. During his presentation, which was held together with Louise Strand, Purchasing Director at Region Skåne, Mr. Rosén spoke about the insights gained from having been part of a public innovation procurement process. Mr. Rosén also presented the company’s revolutionary biodegradable biomaterial Biodolomer® and how it can help close the loop for the circular economy through the efforts undertaken within Biodolomer® for LIFE; an EU financed project within the LIFE program that is undertaken together with Båstads Kommun and NSR AB.

Avfall Sverige (Waste Management Sweden)

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.
