Canada onderzoekt foodverpakking van doorstraalde nanofibers

11 mei 2017

Canada is pursuing research into biodegradable, eco-friendly food packaging developed using radiation technology. For over 15 years, scientists have been researching and developing biodegradable, ‘active’ packaging materials. They do this by taking raw renewable materials such as starch or proteins and combining them with nanocellulose, which is a natural polymer that contains nano-sized cellulose fibres and then irradiating them.
This combination leads to materials with improved properties compared to conventional materials in terms of durability, biodegradability and better water resistance (Nieuwsbericht International Atomic Energy Agency, 19 april 2017).
