Calcium carbonate based active packaging

Development of active packaging system based on ground or modified calcium carbonate

At a glance


The aim of this project is to develop antimicrobial and oxygen scavenging materials for food packaging applications. Both antimicrobial and oxygen scavenging functions will be developed using ground or modified calcium carbonate which has a very high potential to incorporate active ingredients into packaging and to control the release of such active components.
