Development of injection and blow extrusion molded biodegradable and multifunctional packages by nanotechnology: improvement of structural and barrier properties, smart features and sustainability - EC VII FP (2012-2016) FP7 - NMP.2011.LARGE.5 280676
Principal Investigator: 
Elisa Passaglia
Project type: 


The project lasts 48 months and starts to develop packaging that we can find in a few years in sectors such as food, pharmaceuticals or cosmetics. The remarkable features of these new packages are:

  • Developed with Biomaterials (biodegradable and renewable sources)
  • Improved thermal, mechanical and barrier properties through nanotechnology and innovative coatings, which increase the shelf life of the packaged product.
  • Integration of intelligent technologies and devices to provide consumer information on both the product, and the entire life cycle of the container.
  • Made of more flexible production processes and more environmentally sustainable and effective technologies.
