Thermoformable material

new protein-based thermoformable material building on past projects developping barrier whey coatings

The Background

Img-Bac
There is a growing need and significant market opportunity for more sustainable packaging solutions. ThermoWhey will build on past projects that developed a biopolymer-coating based on more expensive pure whey protein isolates (WPI) for plastic films capable of replacing the expensive synthetic oxygen barrier layers currently used in food packaging such as Etylene vinyl alcohol copolymers (EVOH).
