News 2 # Sherpack: a video to explain

The community of SHERPACK is proud to release a short video presenting the objectives and the partners of the project. The European project Sherpack – “Innovative structured polysaccharides-based materials for recyclable and biodegradable flexible packaging” – started in June 2017. The objective is to develop a renewable, biodegradable and recyclable flexible paper-based packaging material, that can be easily converted by heat-sealing and folding, with improved stiffness and grip, in order to replace materials such as plastics or aluminium foil currently used on the market by an advanced biomaterial. These concepts have been turned into pictures to make it universally accessible and to reach a broad audience – and the result is exciting!

News 1 # Sherpack: a project to reinvent flexible paper-based packaging!

Six European partners together to imagine the packaging material of the future

The European project Sherpack – “Innovative structured polysaccharides-based materials for recyclable and biodegradable flexible packaging” – just started; the kick-off meeting was held on 14th June 2017 at CTP in Grenoble. The objective is to develop a renewable, biodegradable and recyclable flexible paper-based packaging material, that can be easily converted by heat-sealing and folding, with improved stiffness and grip, in order to replace materials such as plastics or aluminium foil currently used on the market by an advanced biomaterial.

Sherpack was selected among 70 proposals in the EU funded H2020 BBI-2016-R05 call for projects on “Advanced biomaterials for smart food packaging”. A consortium of 6 partners – 3 industrial partners and 3 research centres – from 5 EU countries received a grant from the Bio-based Industries Joint Undertaking.
