Project mission

Rainbow aims at implementing an innovative strategy in the biorefinery field intended to produce eco-efficient bioplastic at industrial level by using the organic part of urban waste. The goal is to develop a detailed protocol which can be carried out in Lombardy Region economy in order to reduce the use of fossil feedstock while enhancing organic waste with relevant opportunities for the plastic manufacturing sector. The project can contribute to provide technological innovation that is ready-to-use to meet market’s needs and to promote the development of emerging eco-industries. This intent can be achieved thanks to the further step of the project that requires a feasibility demonstration of the protocol by operating at the pilot plant.
