SUCCIPACK is an FP7 project expected to bring a major innovation for the European food and packaging industry. Its objective is to developing new food packaging materials based on polybutylene succinate (PBS).

PBS is a promising bio-based polymer obtained from succinic acid and 1,4- butanediol. The project will explore the potentiality of this new material by developing adapted PBS grades, structures, formulations, treatments and recycling routes. Its environmental impact will be evaluated through Life Cycle Analysis (LCA). It will contribute to answer the consumers demand for green and safe food packaging.
