Advanced biomaterials for smart food packaging

Programme: Horizon2020
Deadline: 2016-09-08
Tags: Other Thematic Category


Develop bio-based materials with new functionalities for food packaging. The new materials need to provide the following objectives: -Prove performances at least equal to existing, comparable packaging materials in terms of mechanical properties and temperature resistance or in terms of liquid/oxygen/UV/CO2-barriers or antimicrobial activity. -In order to improve end-of-life options: provide biodegradable or compostable alternatives; orprovide mono-material (easily recyclable) alternatives while matching the same properties (e.g. barrier) of existing multi-material ones.

Suggested calls:


Optimise technical production routes to bio-based chemicals in bio- or chemo-catalytic processes

The challenge is to specifically optimise technical bio-based production routes in a way that minimizes nutrient losses over the whole process chain caused by either processing and/or partial use of v...
