Czech technology company plans to boost circular economy.

NAFIGATE Corporation will build a European research and development centre for biotechnology and circular economy technologies in cooperation with Vítkovice in Dolní Vítkovice. For instance, purely ecological packaging for food and cosmetics or technologies that use various types of municipal bio-waste to produce natural polymers should be developed in Ostrava. The centre, called Hydal Research and Development, should be built within a year and a half. It will become a research base for three projects under the EU's Horizon 2020 science and innovation programme.
