Functionality of bioplastics (with focus on seal performance)

Bioplastic bag

Collaboration with Pack4Food, KU Leuven/MeBioS, UHasselt/VerpakkingsCentrum/imo-imomec

The functionality of compostable bioplastics is not always well known and the aim of this research is to broaden and accelerate the implementation of these materials. More and more mixtures of different compostable bioplastic materials with promising properties are also emerging from the market. The focus in this project is on the performance of the sealing behavior, the permeability and the mechanical properties of these bio-based materials with a view on defining a wider field of application of these materials in the packaging world.

BIO-FUN started on January 1, 2021 and it is a 2-year project.
