Since its very beginning, Novamont has worked to build partnerships and to collaborate with government bodies, institutions and firms, to develop the project "Living Chemistry for Quality of Life". The partnerships operate in a wide variety of areas, from the search for innovative solutions in different industrial sectors (from the car industry to packaging), to defining standards for analysing product performance, such as the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which was created together with the Italian environmental protection agency ANPA, following indications of the European Environmental Agency. The objective that has driven the work of Novamont, is to create an interdisciplinary team involving universities, research organisations, businesses, and control bodies, to produce real instruments that support sustainable development. With this in mind, for more than ten years, Novamont has been developing and spreading know-how about integrated systems for the collection and disposal of solid urban waste, about minimising waste, and about the most advanced solutions for using renewable raw materials (RRM) of agricultural origin. Because of its work and commitment, Novamont has been called to take part in various international bodies and commissions, including the European Climate Change Programme workgroup.

Here are some of the projects in which Novamont was one of the main participants:

  • In collaboration with Federambiente, the association of Italian environmental hygiene companies, studies were carried out on different urban waste collection systems, with particular attention to the role of the organic part.
  • Novamont was one of the partners involved in the Kassel project, an important test produced in Germany, in collaboration with the city council, sales outlets throughout the country, and collection and disposal companies, to verify the feasibility and reception by the public of a wide range of compostable plastic products.
