SOLAPACK : new project on preventing the migration of critical substances from the packaging into foodstuff
 16 Nov 2012

SoLaPack is an acronym for Sorption Layers for paperbased Packaging materials. The project has started in May 2012.

The objective of this CORNET project is the development of concepts to ensure that critical substances cannot migrate in to the packaged food. Therefore sorption materials have to be incorporated into coating formulations to selectively sorb benzophenone, bisphenol A, phthalates and mineral oil from inks, varnishes, adhesive and recovered paper. A coating on the product side should prevent the contamination of food by migration of these substances, so that the critical values are not exceeded.

There are several steps in this project: characterisation of sorption materials, production and characterisation (by migration tests amongst others) of sorption layers, functionalisation and optimisation of sorption layers and finally a profitability study of the process. Additionaly, recommendations for sustainable, environmentally compatible and health-preserving packaging materials will be formulated.

The research partners working on the project are PTS (coordinator, Germany), CELABOR (Wallonia), CERTECH (Wallonia), COBRO (Poland) and the West Pomeranian University of Technology (Poland).

The project will last 2 years.
