Electronic sensor system for the characterisation of packaging emissions

Objective

The ESCAPE project focuses on new quality control procedures in the food packaging industries. An existing hybrid gas sensor system will be coupled with appropriate sampling set-ups . The latter have to be optimised according to applications in the field of packaging materials. During the course of ESCAPE a dedicated system will be set-up. Within the ESCAPE Project the systems will be tested in different development phases in order to assess the quality of wrapping materials influenced by chemicals remaining from the production process which are potentially transferred in the food chain. The measurements of this new approach will be performed at- or on-line at an early stage of the converting and packaging process, respectively to avoid time-consuming analyses of the final products. Besides the time advantage resources will be saved since the whole manufacturing is already monitored at the very beginning.
