Nanotechnology packaging is "extremely challenging"
A project aimed at researching and establishing fibre-based packaging throughout Europe using nanotechnology has been described as "extremely challenging" by a member of one of its partners.
Chris Breen, a researcher at Sheffield Hallam University, commented in relation to the target of making sustainable fibre-based packaging a major player in the sector in the next ten years.
He told Food Production Daily that developing this type of packaging as a competitor of its traditional polymer-based counterpart would be a definite challenge.
