New MakPak project - Packaging solutions from marine algea

29 March 2018

The goal of the MakPak project (Sustainable packaging solutions from marine macro algea for the food sector) is to develop a sustainably produced, disposable and/or edible packaging solution for foodstuffs for both out-of-home consumption and the fast-food segment.
The packaging solution is to consist exclusively of specific, marine macroalgae raw materials for recycling. The raw material will continue to be refined with extracts of selected macroalgae species containing bioactive compounds so that the packaging solution is not only standardized and sustainable, but also has a positive effect on the food to be packaged (News Item Alfred Wegener institute, 19 February 2018).
