Periodic Report Summary 1 - DIBBIOPACK (DEVELOPMENT OF INJECTION AND BLOW EXTRUSION MOLDED BIODEGRADABLE AND MULTIFUNCTIONAL PACKAGES BY NANOTECHNOLOGY: IMPROVEMENT OF STRUCTURAL AND BARRIER PROPERTIES, SMART FEATURES AND SUSTAINABILITY)



Project Context and Objectives:

DIBBIOPACK concept is to develop multifunctional packages in a wide range of processes (injection & blow extrusion) which improve the structural, thermal, mechanical and barrier properties through nanotechnology and innovative coatings; introducing smart features and increase sustainability, using bio-based materials specially adapted for the development of a wide range of containers or packages (films made by extrusion laminating, trays or lids developed by injection moulding and bottles performed through extrusion blow moulding technologies).

DIBBIOPACK aims at integrating different intelligent technologies to provide more information about the products and the processes to the packaging value chain; increasing safety and quality of the products throughout the supply chain and improving the shelf-life of the packaged products.

Summary of project objectives:

1. Reducing the environmental impact, combining 100% biodegradable functionally different materials with a reduction of energy consumption and material use promoting the sustainability as a target.
2. Improving package performances as barrier properties or thermal resistance of bioplastics and processability, all them through materials formulation and processes combination and optimisation.
3. Assuring the multifunctionality of the package, developing biodegradable smart nanodevices adapted to the package and the safety using IML to facilitate the separation between product and nanomaterials.

Project Results:

So far, the workplan has been successfully carried out. A summary of the work performed so far:

• Specifications from end users and processes
• Final demonstrators decided.
• Identifications of processes critical parameters
• First formulations of PLA improving characteristics, using plasticizers and nanoadditives.
• Trials on the testing moulds with natural PLA and with the new formulations
• Evaluation of the ORMOCER®-based antimicrobial coating materials from the state-of-the-art and development of new biodegradable antimicrobial coating materials and ultra-sensitive O2 sensor
• Questionnaires for data collection for LCA studies.
• Dissemination strategy and external image.
• IPR basis, Commercialisation plan based on Exploitation strategy seminar and Preliminary market analysis already implemented.
• HELP (pharmaceutical end-user) and TEHNOS (injection and moulding company) joined the consortium

Potential Impact:

Exploitable results concerning new material development, new processes optimisation, new devices and new packages development:

WP1 New optimised bio nanocomposites for injection and blow extrusion moulding, and for extrusion lamination, new hybrid biopolymer

WP2 Optimised injection moulding and blow-extrusion moulding and extrusion laminating processes, optimised IML process, optimised supercritical fluid technology and plasma technology

WP3 Biodegradable and humidity activated antimicrobial nanodevice based on new hybrid biopolymer, RFID O2 sensor

WP4 3 pilot processing lines and 3 packaging prototypes, 3 optimised production processes
