GREEN ALTERNATIVES TO SYNTHETIC BARRIER MATERIALS IN PACKAGING

20.5.2011 10:46

 

Currently, barrier layers in food packaging materials are produced from plastics based on fossil oil. Although functional, these layers present challenges in terms of environmental sustainability and recyclability. VTT aims to develop biobased barriers and hybrid materials to provide green alternatives to synthetic barrier materials in packaging applications.
