ECO sustainable multi FUNctional biobased COATings with enhanced performance and end of life options

Project description

Turning agro-food biomass into optimised coating materials

Low-valorised biomass sources – such as tomatoes, legumes, watermelons, sunflowers and shrimps – are as valuable as ever for the EU-funded ECOFUNCO project. It will select and extract functionalised molecules (active organic molecules, proteins, polysaccharides, cutin) for the development of new bio-based coating materials. These will be used on two different substrates: cellulosic and plastic-based for the production of plastic trays and top layers (packaging for fresh products like pasta, ham and meat) as well as cellulose-based table wares, woven and non-woven (personal care products). Also, cutin-based formulations will be used for water-repellent coatings such as paper cups and tableware. Protein-based barrier and chitosan-based coatings will be used for multilayer food packaging.
