Project Description

BIOFOODPACK aims to develop a sustainable biocomposite food packaging material to actively interact with foodstuffs, leading to improved food safety with minimal processing, reducing food loss and waste.

The materials will possess:
The antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of natural resources, combined with different fillers to achieve water resistant materials with enhanced mechanical and gas barrier properties;
Electrically conductivity for in-pack sterilization by pulsed electric fields, using short electric pulses to sterilize food at low temperature.
