'Team points' are awarded according to the adequacy of the solution with the type of innovations sought by Team for the Planet. They correspond to the analysis of several factors :

  • impact potential: impact average score > 4 => 0,5 point / if > 4,15 => 1 point.
  • global consistency: all average score of the 6 selection criteria > 2,5 => 1 point.
  • the favourite: % of assessments judge the innovation as a top one to act on a global scale against greenhouse gases > 20% => 1 point
  • the targeting: validation of Team for the Planet scope of action higher than 90% => 0,5 point + innovation level of maturity is enough => 0,5 point
  • social acceptability: semantic analysis score of comments > 0 => 0,5 point/ if > 3500 => 1 point
69 assessments

Submitted for assessment : After checking that an innovation is within the scope of the 20 issues Team for the Planet targets and that it has reached a sufficient maturity, the innovation is being assessed.

Detailed project

NB: this form is filled entirely by the ones submitting the innovation.

What is the issue addressed?

Plastic packaging is today mostly fossil-based and very scarcely recycled. Therefore a great source of CO2 and litter-causing microplastics.

How is the problem solved?

We replace plastic packaging, including high-value and advanced structures such as closures, with high-density press-formed cellulose fibres in an energy- and cost-efficient process that is ready to scale.

What is the customer target?

Brands from sectors dealing with drink, food, cosmetics, personal care and condiments.

How is this solution different?

Recyclable in existing highly functional recycling streams. Truly recyclable. Made from readily available cellulose fibres and breaks down without causing microplastics if misplaced.
