Working on packaging of the future
Pack4Food initiates and coordinates projects in collaboration with companies and research institutions, both on Flemish and European level. An important motive here is the roadmap "Food packaging of the future" that was launched officially at the end of 2019.
A strategic collaboration with Flanders' FOOD was set up in 2020 to unroll this roadmap via different projects, together with companies, research partners, other spear head clusters and stakeholders in the food packaging chain.
Pack4Food and the spearhead cluster Flanders’ FOOD (food), VIL (logistics), SIM (new materials) and Catalisti (chemistry and plastics) have been working on a Roadmap about the food packaging of the future since September 2018.
Evaluation of the recyclability of flexible food packaging materials in function of their composition & the resulting shelf life of food products
Applicability of SMART camera technologies for the quality control of reusable packaging
How will you, as a company, adjust your packaging policy to the circular economy in the future?
Developing multimethods for the analysis of migrating ink and glue components from food contact materials in (prepacked) food products
Industrial relevant case study in which recycling some common streams of multilayer packaging waste (PET-PE, PA-PE, EVOH) are studied
Intake estimation of nickel via food for the Belgian population and research on sources of nickel contamination
