On October 19, 2015 the Enviu foundation launched the Plastic Fantastic Challenge inviting entrepreneurs and innovators to create truly environmentally friendly biodegradable bioplastics. Some issues to tackle are 1) production of biomass on scarce farmland and in competition with food production, 2) separating bioplastics from conventional plastic for recycling, and 3) greenhouse gas emissions in the production of bioplastics. Interested teams (minimum 2 members) can submit their business ideas until December 14, 2015.
