Development and implementation of a contact biocide polymer for its application as antimicrobial and anti-deposit surfaces in the food industry

Cel

There is a common need for preventing and eradicating microbial contamination across the supply and production chain in the food industry, especially in the food processing and packaging industries in the EU. Therefore, it is important that all surfaces which come in contact with food and foodstuffs are free of potentially hazardous microorganisms. Compared to conventional antimicrobial agents, polymeric biocide materials compounded in different elastomeric and non-elastomeric surfaces have the advantages of being non-volatile, chemically stable and do not release degradation products of low molecular weight into the environment. BIOSURF aims to develop aminofunctionalised norbornene polymers for their implementation as biocide antimicrobial and anti-deposit surfaces in different applications in food industries. BIOSURF also aims to develop anti-deposit and microbial monitoring modules, in order to assess the efficiency of the biocidic surfaces in its antimicrobial and anti-deposit functions. In addition, the project, will implement, test and optimise under real production conditions the biocide surfaces in combination with the monitoring modules, aiming achieve marketable products. The R&D activities will be based on initial patent-protected concepts developed by KEKELIT and LAGOTEC (SME participants). The project is centred on complementary technological problems and innovation needs of the participating SMEs, for which further R&D activities from joint initial research represent a clear exploitation potential for the businesses. KEKELIT manufactures plastic equipment for different industrial applications such as plastic pipe systems, pipe insulation and pre-insulated pipes; LAGOTEC develops industrial monitoring technologies (biofilm control/microbial plant safety); and COASA is specialized in the production, packaging and distribution of farmhouse cheese, honey, jams, canned food and cider.
