Objectives: Végéplast, a spin-off of the Vivadour Group based in Tarbes, has been studying the recovery of agricultural and food-processing by-products into bioplastics for a number of years now. The aim of this project is to use the tremendous potential of industrial biotechnologies to create new categories of biopolymers derived from the by-products of Maïsadour and Vivadour. These biopolymers will provide access to bioplastics markets which have increasingly demanding requirements in terms of technical characteristics, with the prospect of generating added value on the by-products used for this operation.
