Resumen:
Una universidad turca ha desarrollado una película polimérica con nanotubos de halloysita y agentes activos antibacterianos para conferir propiedades antibacterianas, de barrera y depuración de etileno. La película polimérica se utiliza como material de envasado de productos alimenticios. La tecnología ha sido validada mediante un ensayo in situ, aunque aún no ha sido incorporada en productos comerciales. La universidad busca fabricantes de envases de uso alimentario con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Tittle:
Food packaging material with antibacterial, ethylene scavenging and barrier properties
Summary:
A Turkish university has developed a polymeric film with halloysite nanotubes that are incorporated with antibacterial active agents to provide antibacterial, barrier and ethylene scavenging properties. The polymeric film can be used as a packaging material for food products. The university is looking for food packaging material producers for licence agreements.
Description:
Active and multifunctional packaging materials are facing increasing demand because of the changing trend of the customer needs such as safety and long shelf life of the food material without interfering with processed materials, preservatives and additives.

Contrary to conventional food packaging that is inert to the food; active food packaging has the ability to act against the contaminants and to remove them. Active packaging functions like being antibacterial, ability to scavenge spoiling molecules, and impermeability to gases are achieved by the integration of active components into the food packaging materials.

There exists continuing need for a modified film packaging that can have antimicrobial, gas scavenging and barrier properties while having also easy applicability to conventional olefins, particularly thermoplastics and more particularly to plastics of having lower surface energy such as Polyethylene (PE) and Polypropylene (PP).

A Turkish university developed a food packaging material in the form of polymeric films or a coating for polymeric films having good antibacterial, barrier and scavenging properties by using halloysite nanotubes and antibacterial active agents. The university is open for licence agreements with SME or large enterprises active in food packaging material production.
Advantages and Innovations:
The technology provides;
- antibacterial properties without using agents detrimental or harmful to human health.
- packaging materials having satisfactory barrier and scavenging properties while being easily recyclable.
- modified polymeric films for food packaging providing all of antibacterial, barrier and scavenging properties within the same product by specific arrangements and modifications.
