NEW RESEARCH RESULTS: Biobased nanocomposite coating for food packaging materials

25.3.2010 18:20


Jari Vartiainen, Mikko Tuominen and Kalle Nättinen developed a new biobased nanocomposite coating with improved barrier properties. Nanotechnology in food packaging is expected to grow strongly over the next five years as the increased globalization sets demands for shelf life enhancing packaging. Applications of nanotechnology include e.g. improved barrier, mechanical and antimicrobial properties.
