Resumen:
Científicos polacos han desarrollado una nueva tecnología de fabricación de envases totalmente biodegradables para la industria alimentaria. Esta solución se basa en derivados de papel, almidón y polímero procedente de recursos renovables (PLA, ácido poliláctico). Los envases fabricados con esta tecnología son más gruesos y resistentes al agua que otros productos disponibles en el mercado. Además están hechos de celulosa con un revestimiento de chitosán (sustancia natural), siendo una excelente alternativa a los envases de plástico. El equipo de científicos busca socios con el fin de establecer acuerdos de licencia.

Details

Tittle:
Fully biodegradable packagings for food industry are offered under license agreement.
Summary:
The Polish scientists have developed an innovative technology of fully biodegradable packaging for food industry. The offered solution is based on paper derivatives, starch and polymer derived from renewable resources (PLA, polylactide). Packagings made according to that technology are thicker and have higher water resistance than other products currently available on the market. The scientists are looking for business partners interested in license agreement.
Description:
The scientists from North-West Poland have developed technology of biodegradable packagings that can be applicable in food industry. The offered solution is ecological - packagings are made paper derivatives, starch and polymer derived from renewable resources.

The offered technology is based on environmentally friendly substances such as i.e. organic salts to modify packaging surface. Packagings made of cellulose with addition of chitosan (natural substance) coating are great alternative for plastic ones. At the same time packagings are thicker, flexible and have better water resistance. Moreover they are antibacterial and fully biodegradable. The solution was tested mainly on fish products and bread (increase of usefulness in case of bread was significant and impressive) however packagings can be used to any type of products from food sector.

The researchers are interested in starting cooperation with business partners active in food or packaging industries who want to implement the offered technology in their entities. Long term cooperation in a form of license agreements (with technical support in implementation process if needed) is offered.
Advantages and Innovations:
Offered packagings are thicker and have better water resistance than other products currently available on the market . As the solution is fully biodegradable it is a great alternative to plastic ones. Packagings can be used for all types of food. Prolongation of food products´ shelf life is documented.

The scientists have long-term experience in researches over biodegradable packagings including cooperation with industry and experience in the implementation of numerous projects, all with international partners.
Stage of Development:
Available for demonstration
IPs:
Patent(s) applied for but not yet granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Polish and EPO patents pending.
