Longer food preservation without metallized materials and MAP

23 January 2018

Currently, modified atmosphere processes are used in the case of meats and fresh food, as well as packaging including multilayer structures with metallized materials for snacks, resulting in products made from non-renewable sources which are also difficult to recycle.
In order to achieve environmentally sustainable packages allowing to preserve food in optimal conditions for longer period, AIMPLAS is coordinating the project RefuCoat. By means of the investigations that will be carried out in the project, innovative material based on biopolymers will be developed, thus replacing those currently used in food packaging in the form of films and trays (News Item AIMPLAS, 20 December 2017).
