About SEALIVE

The project has the vision to reduce plastic waste and contamination on land and in seas by boosting the use of biomaterials and contributing to the circular economy with cohesive bio-plastic strategies. Sealive will generate new bio-based plastics with advanced properties and enhanced efficiency, improve processing technologies, product design and implement effective end-of-life solutions. The project, financed by the European Commission, runs from 2019 until 2023.

Objectives:

  • Develop new bio-based plastic solutions using sustainable biomass sources and efficient processing technologies

  • Optimise sustainable business models and product design strategies

  • Implement pre-normative studies to foster standardization of biodegradable solutions

  • Promote the use of the new solutions by the plastics industry, public authorities and citizens

  • Support the development of European and global bioplastics frameworks for policymakers

Gate2Growth participation

G2G is the leader of the work package on Sustainable strategies for bio-based plastic in land and sea applications. Furthermore, validation, communication and dissemination activities are also supported in two other work packages.

 

G2G main activities are: 

  • Create a business model-driven methodology to be applied during the project and drive developments of the bio-based materials

  • Design of 8 innovative business models to be tested within the project framework

Sealive partners

The project brings together 24 partners and five linked third parties from 13 different countries across Europe.
