Antibacteriëel effect mosselschelp in kunststoffolie

30 augustus 2018

The addition of calcined waste clamshells (CCS) into polyethylene (PE) plastic bags imparts antibacterial properties due to the presence of CaO. Researchers at the Agricultural Technology Research Institute in Taiwan added different proportions of calcined waste clamshells to PE to explore the bacteriostatic effects.
They found that the PE plastic bags with 9% and 11% of CCS exhibited antibacterial efficacy. Further, total aerobic viable count (TVC) values for raw fish fillet packaging in 9% and 11% CCS-PE plastic bags for five days were similar to the 0% CCS-PE plastic bag group after three days of incubation. An article about the research is published in Materials.
