Objectives

EggPlant’s technology allows the possibility to recycle different sources of wastewater, coming from multiple factories of the agri-food industry, replacing the common plastic produced from hydrocarbons with a biodegradable one. Currently, the scale-up of the process is running through the building a pilot plant that will validate the technology on a pre-industrial scale.
