Funding Competition: ISCF Future Plastic Packaging
Company Sector: Manufacturing & Materials
Project Duration: 18 Months
Funding Secured: ~£150k
The sustainable plastic packaging materials and designs for the plastic bottle industry has a global worth of £129billion and is manufacturing bottles at a rate of 1million/min.
BMT has developed an innovative state of the art software that will enable packaging to be designed and manufactured with just the right amount of material. It will automate the design process for preforms and bottles for the complex stretch blow moulding process enabling a faster uptake of new materials and designs incorporating more recycled content.
The Granted Consultancy team supported with full application grant writing for Innovate UK’s ISCF Future Plastic Packaging competition. The software developed in this project will offer an automated virtual design process that will enable a paradigm shift in the design and manufacture of plastic bottles.
