The REFUCOAT project aims to develop barrier coatings, as well as bioplastics to be used in films and trays as an alternative to the current aluminum-based structures.
The REFUCOAT project aims to develop barrier coatings, as well as bioplastics to be used in films and trays as an alternative to the current aluminum-based structures.

AIMPLAS, the Plastics Technology Center in Spain, is coordinating the European project REFUCOAT, whose main objective is to develop new materials for food packaging in a more sustainable way.

The project will develop barrier coatings, as well as bioplastics to be used in films and trays as an alternative to the current aluminum-based structures.

Specifically, polyglycolic acid (PGA) is going to be combined with modified silica oxide in order to formulate a hybrid coating with oxygen and water vapor barrier properties.

Furthermore, a new polylactic acid (PLA) grade from corn wastes will be developed, with better water vapor barrier values than commercial grades. These developments are going to be combined in order to create recyclable packages for chicken, cereals and snacks.

In the project REFUCOAT a total of 12 partners from five countries take part. It is funded by the European Union, through the program H2020-BBI-JTI-2016 with grant number 74591.
