Nanoparticles could soon be used in the food industry to make improved packaging materials and make them less expensive and more environmentally-friendly, it has been claimed.
German scientists at the universities of Bonn and Leuven have discovered that by adding nanoscopic platelets to plastics they can adjust their gas and water permeability.
If these plastics are used in food packaging they could help to preserve fruit, vegetables and other perishable goods, extending their shelf life and lowering the transportation costs involved in shipping them from the manufacturer to the store.
