CIEN Strategic 2015 (IDI-20150606) (Sep. 2015 - Aug. 2019): "Research and experimental development of new healthier foods and advanced packaging - AVANZA-S". Development of biodegradable foamed packaging, packaging that helps extend the shelf life of food and more sustainable packaging.
FEDER INNTERCONECTA 2015 (ITC-20151005) (Sep. 2015 - Dec. 2017): “Manufacture of containers for the food sector from XPS and PET composites with improved properties through high-efficiency thermoforming - EFI-PACK ". Development of more sustainable thermoformed containers from XPS and PET composites, using efficient molds that reduce waiting times and facilitate the placing on the market of new containers, making a more ecological and sustainable production system.
2015 Collaboration Challenges (RTC-2015-4359-2) (Jul. 2015-Jul. 2017): "High performance and sustainable foamed plastic packaging for safer food packaging - SOSTFOAM". Development of two new ranges of packaging: one for microwaves and the other biodegradable and compostable.
INTERCONECTA (ITC-20131023) (Apr / 13 - Mar / 15): "Preservation of highly perishable food products through active packaging incorporating natural compounds from the olive industry - ACTIVEOLIVE".
