Researchers at the University of Leeds a nanomanufacturing institute, United Kingdom, have identified nanoparticles of magnesium oxide and zinc oxide to be effective in destroying microorganisms. This shows huge potential for safe, effective and affordable food packaging in the near future.
The Foundation for Scientific and Industrial Research at the Norwegian Institute of Technology (SINTEF) is attempting to use nanotechnology to develop plastic film that provide barrier protection by preventing gases such as oxygen and ethylene from damaging the food content.
