CORNET Research Project: SELECTPERM
 14 Jan 2015

SELECTPERM => Development of packaging materials with O2/ CO2selective permeability for food packaging.



Nowadays, micro- and nano-perforated plastic films are used for food packaging, as well as materials with high barrier properties, which allow the use of packaging under modified atmosphere. Neither of these materials is optimised for products that do need to breathe (vegetables, fruits, and some cheeses). The perforated materials do not permit selectivity or control regarding the gas exchange, while the MAP in the high barrier materials is modified by the respiratory activity of the products. This may cause anoxia of the goods after a while.
 
SELECTPERM started in May 2014 and aims to develop a packaging material with O2/ CO2 selective permeability for the packaging of fresh products. The project will specifically target fresh cut fruits mix and aims to improve the shelf-life of these breathing goods by regulating the gas exchanges and therefore the O2 and CO2 permeability of the packaging materials.
 
The materials used in the project are bio-based and/or recyclable materials, in order to develop sustainable packaging: on one hand, paper coated with a permselective film; on the other hand, materials made entirely of polymers (multilayer and compounds).
 
The project is divided into 3 phases:
  • Study and modelling of the product’s needs in terms of gas exchanges.
  • Development and validation of packaging materials with selective permeability.
  • Profitability study.
 
The partners of the project are:
  • CBIMO (Center of Bioimmobilisation and Innovative Packaging Materials, Poland)
  • CELABOR (Wallonia, Belgium)
  • CERTECH (Centre of Technological Resources in Chemistry, Wallonia, Belgium)
  • Fraunhofer IVV (Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging, Germany)
  • Fraunhofer LBF (Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability, Germany)
  • PTS (Papiertechnische Stiftung, Germany) – Coordinator
 
Planned project duration is 2 years.
