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”.
