This French SME is developing and manufacturing different products for the horticulture sector including horticulture containers which one can commonly find in private gardens.
These containers are mostly made out of wood and contain embedded water tanks.
Currently they used recyclable materials made of polypropylene for these small water tanks.
The company is particularly concerned by environmental issues and sustainable development both for societal and marketing purposes. Therefore it would like to improve its product and is therefore looking for two new technologies
- one material technology able to substitute to polypropylene which would be both waterproof and biodegradable (in the longer term)
- one coating technology, fully natural, which would make wood totally waterproof.
The company is looking for already developed material technology which could then be adapted to its product through a technical cooperation.
