Bio-based smart packaging for enhanced preservation of food quality (BIOSMART) This project has the ambition to develop active and smart bio-based and compostable packages, addressing the needs of fresh and pre-treated food applications, as for example, light weighting, reduced residues, shelf life monitoring and longer shelf life, easier waste handling, and all this at a competitive cost. BIOSMART project develops thus encompasses an approach for selectively integrating super-hydrophobic surfaces, microencapsulated phase change materials, barrier coatings, sensoring devices, and new bio-active antimicrobial and antioxidants, into all-bio-based multilayer flexible plastic packages.
