Creating bioplastics from processing waste (P.PSH.0632)
The livestock processing industry is constantly searching for the most efficient use of processing by-products.
Research undertaken by Waikato University
What are we doing?
This project is scaling up and demonstrating commercial viability of a process for manufacturing biodegradable plastics from the beef and lamb processing industry’s higher protein waste streams. Such bioplastics are a renewable raw material, offering an opportunity to better utilise processing waste streams.
