Amcor Australasia and Plantic Technologies Limited have announced an alliance to work towards the development of a new biodegradable material, which if successful, has potential to change the mainstream confectionery packaging market and provide manufacturers and retailers with a cost effective, functional and environmentally−sustainable packaging solution.

The collaboration will encompass a research program over two years and will seek to build the intellectual property (IP) of both companies. Plantic will provide its patented Plantic material: a plastic created from plants, which dissolves rapidly on contact with water. Amcor will use the Plantic material to undertake trials of the resin in a commercial packaging film operation.
