The BIOSMART project will develop active and smart bio-based and compostable packages to meet the needs of both fresh and pre-treated food applications. In addition, the novel packaging system will form the basis for tailoring performance and functionality to specific flexible and rigid food packages in diverse market segments.


In order to address future demands, packaging will need to enable lightweighting, reduced food residues, easier shelf life monitoring and longer shelf life, easier consumer waste handling, all without a price premium. The BIOSMART project therefore encompasses an approach for selectively integrating superhydrophobic surfaces, microencapsulated phase change materials, barrier coatings, sensor devices and new bio-active antimicrobial and antioxidants, into fully bio-based multilayer flexible plastic packages.
