VIDEO: Bioplastics and Bioeconomy in Italy

Here is a cute infographic video from Novamont about bioplastics and bioeconomy in Italy.

It shows the Italian case study in the promotion of a new model of economic development focused on the creation of integrated supply chains, the start-up of biorefineries and the diffusion of separate waste collection systems connected with the use of biodegradable and compostable bioplastics.

According to Novamont, the video focuses on the pioneering role of Italy in adopting a law to reduce the use of disposable bags, which led to positive environmental, economic and social impacts. If you can read in Italian, you can also access free information via an e-book on the Novamont website about a Bioeconomy case study in Italy promoted by Kyoto Club, edited by Walter Ganapini and published by Edizioni Ambiente, with the support of the Italian Ministry of the Environment.

The book illustrates perspectives and impacts of the growth of bioeconomy in Italy, as well as the severity of the problem of the spread of non-biodegradable and compostable plastic bags.
