Since more than nine years, bioplastics have become one of the main focus of the Plastics Cluster. The topic was continually deepened from the international research project "CORNET Biopacking", which focused on polylactic acid (PLA) packaging. The focus is on knowledge building and the transfer of know-how to small and medium-sized enterprises in Austria.
