LIFE BIOCOPACPlus manufactured food cans coated with a bio-lacquer made from cutin, a water-repellent substance found in waste tomato skins. The project produced 3 000 cutin-coated cans using standard techniques at a farm in Italy. These matched the functional and hygienic properties of cans on the market, while saving 730 mg of CO2 equivalent emissions per can.
