Within the EcoBioCAP FP7 project a next generation packaging will be developed using advanced composite structures based on constituents derived from the food industry by-products only and by applying innovative processing strategies to enable customisation of the packaging properties to fit the functional, cost, safety and environmental impact requirements of the targeted fresh perishable food.
The overall objective of EcoBioCAP is to provide the EU food industry with customizable,
ecoefficient, biodegradable packaging solutions with direct benefits both for the environment and EU consumers in terms of food quality and safety.
Scope of the project:
EcoBioCAP is designed around the main following specifications:
- Ensuring food quality and safety preservation
- Environment friendliness and sustainable development
- Industrial competitiveness
Support the development of biodegradable food packaging from food industry by-products and address food and packaging European competitiveness while ensuring consumer and environmental safety.
