Food Packaging

Custom configured packaging films based on bio-based PLA film reinforced with BNC and NL and coated with NFC coatings will be prepared. In addition, pecific micro/nano textured geometries will be designed, fabricated and replicated using nanoimprint replication processes to impart the films with self-cleaning and antimicrobial properties. The films will be 100% biodegradable and compostable, with increased storage and life cycle, and excellent oxygen barrier properties. Vacuum thermoforming will be post-utilized to produce bio compostable and biodegradable food containers.
