Biodegradable Biocomposites With Antimicrobial Properties For Food Packaging

from SPE Plastics Research Online

Single-use food contact packaging materials are typically made from common plastics, including polyethylene and poly(ethylene terephthalate). Although these materials are recyclable, vast quantities of them end up in landfill sites, where they resist degradation for long periods of time. Bioderived polymers are now gaining popularity as replacements for these traditional packaging materials. In particular, poly(lactic acid) – PLA – is one of the more promising biopolymers for these applications. In terms of cost, however, PLA cannot rival the traditional packaging materials. more
