Biocomplack: Eco-friendly food packaging with enhanced barrier properties.
Duration: June 2016 – December 2018
Partners: Coordinator: Sapici. Other partners: NaturePlast, Tecnopackaging, UniMi, Goglio
Target: The BIOCOMPLACK project aims to achieve biobased, biodegradable and compostable food packaging to improve the barrier properties in 100 times compared to other biobased packaging. This allows lengthening 300% the shelf life of food contained therein.
These containers are innovative because they are made with a multilayer PLA structure reinforced with organoclays which provide natural preservatives to the food and cellulose nanocrystals to achieve excellent barrier properties to oxygen and water vapor.
BIOCOMPLACK is an obvious pioneering alternative to the biobased packaging, which will bring benefits to consumers, environment, and companies that implement it in their products.
