Cost-efficient and safe cellulosic food pad

Project description

Biodegradable yet highly absorbent polymers are on their way to market

Plastics such as bags, bottles and straws tend to get most of the attention among the public when it comes to recycling and sustainability of polymers, resulting in significant advances in materials and methods. Superabsorbent polymers used in products like diapers, feminine hygiene and food pads for meat and fish are due for an update because of increasing concerns not only for the environment but for human health. The EU-funded CellSorb project will optimise its cost-effective, non-toxic and biodegradable food pads made from bioplastics and superabsorbent micro-cellulose materials for a green revolution in ‘superabsorbency’.
