Materials for green and smart food packaging
The food supply chains have become complex, massive and international, and for this reason, the quality of the food that we consume depends equally on its nutritional value and on its efficient packaging. Unfortunately, food packaging is producing huge amounts of waste, especially non-biodegradable plastic. The development of novel materials that can be used as containers or packaging solutions able to ensure optimized protection to food from the external environment. Sustainable and biodegradable materials, as pure or even recycled cellulose, biodegradable and natural polymers, are modified in order to become suitable for protective, safe, and environmentally zero-impact food packaging.
