WP6 - Industrial applicability;
Workpackage Leader: Antonio Vicente - Universidade do Minho (Uminho)
WP objectives: WP6 main objective is to proof the concept of industrial applicability of the solutions of fully biodegradable food packaging materials developed under EcoBioCAP. This main objective can be broken-down into the following specific objectives:
• To upscale from lab to small pilot plant scale the production of PHA and of the other selected constituents.
• To upscale from lab to small pilot plant scale the production of packaging materials and providing prototypes of finalized packaging materials.
• To demonstrate finalized packaging materials efficiency in preserving food quality and safety.
• To demonstrate large pilot scale production of the most promising packaging material.
• To demonstrate the ECOBIOCAP packaging solution efficiency in terms of food shelf-life, against the benchmark reference packaging under real distribution conditions.
