Bio-on successfully completed the first test phase for the special bioplastic production facility inaugurated on 20 June

“Respecting the timeline is fundamental,” explains CEO Marco Astorri, “since the new European directive about the reduction of pollution caused by traditional plastic, which the European Parliament will vote in September, will open a huge market for biodegradable plastics”.

The total investment for the production center and for the new research laboratories is 20 million euros.
