UN Sustainability Goal 14:Life below water

We develop novel renewable and biodegradable materials that can replace plastic, for instance in packaging applications. Hence, our research supports UN sustainability subgoal 14.1:

UN subgoal 14.1: “By 2025, prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.”

Target 14.1.1 b: “Plastic debris density.”

UN subgoal 14.1

Examples of projects at RISE PFI supporting UN sustainability goal 14.1 are given below:


Thermoformed fibre products for functional and sustainable packaging of fresh food

Biobased foam

Biobased foams can have useful properties for several applications


Replacing fossil fuel-based plastic products


A new generation beverage carton


3D formed fibre packaging

Dry Fibre Forming


New Hybrid Paper
