“ High barrier long life, low cost, recyclable packaging through special injection moulding process (co-injection) to applications in the non-cooked seafood packaging sector. ”

Objectives

The main objective of this project is to industrialize the technologies related to the adaptation of a gas barrier, competitive cost, recyclable and thin package obtained by simultaneous co-injection moulding process, for non-thermally treated marinated, smoked and spicy fish packaging products, using as a core layer a non-chemically treated thermoplastic wheat starch and polypropylene (PP) as skin layer.

Project Overview

» Co-injected package design and simulation for each end user
» Adaptation of the previous starch formulation to each fish package case study
» Machine adaptation and simultaneous co-injection process optimization
» Self-life of new packages for non-cooked seafood sector

Welcome

The main objective of this Project is to industrialize the technologies related to the adaptation of a gas barrier, competitive cost, recyclable and thin package obtained by simultaneous co-injection moulding process, for non-thermally treated marinated, smoked and spicy fish packaging products , using as a core layer a non-chemically treated thermoplastic wheat starch and polypropylene (PP) as skin layer.
The non-cooked fish sector uses around 2.000 millions of packages annually. Currently, a wide range of materials such as metal, glass or plastic are used.
