WP3 - Formulation and structuring of finalized materials;
Workpackage Leader: Claudia Schoenweitz and Cornelia Stramm - Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der angewandten Forschung e.V. (Fraunhofer)
WP objectives: The objective of this WP is to develop finalised packaging materials by combining and structuring the different constituents developed in the WP2, with complementary roles in order to achieve the intended targeted final properties (e.g. barrier, mechanical strength, processability as defined in WP1). This will include 3 specific objectives:
• To develop a flexible barrier film - Focus: high oxygen barrier, medium water vapour barrier.
• To develop a flexible respiring film - Focus: high permselectivity (carbon dioxide/oxygen permeability ratio), high water vapour transmission rate.
• To develop a rigid/semi-rigid tray - Focus: water resistant, oxygen and aroma barrier.
