Innovative BIOdegradable POLYmer for PACKaging improving shelf life, safety and quality of the food wrapped.
The principal goal of this project if to get to reduce the environmental impact of the waste products from the packaging by providing them with a high level of biodegradability and, at the same time, lengthen the fresh produce shelf life through the implementation of antifogging and antimicrobial properties in the packaging itself.
This times, there are oxo-biodegradable materials, also antimicrobial and antifogging ones in the market. However, there is not any of them able to combine the three features in only one material because of the added additives to give antimicrobial and antifogging properties also reduce the performance of the oxo-degradable agents. Therefore, in most applications has to be chosen between whether the final product is going to be either biodegradable or antimicrobial.
The innovation HT Masterbatch offers comprises combining in the packaging the three abovementioned functionalities, meeting the necessities and requirements from the market:
-Optimal food preservation
-Lengthening of the food shelf-life
