Characterization and testing of mulch films and food packaging

Characterization and testing of mulch films and food packaging

The newly developed materials (mulch papers, coatings and nanocellulosic materials) will be characterized and tested during the development stages to evaluate their quality and properties. The testing will also include benchmarking materials in order to assess the relative improvement of the materials. The mainly used methodology for micro- and nano-structural characterization will be scanning electron microscopy, EDS, element mappings and atomic force microscopy. Based on these, the structural configuration will be analyzed and the quality can then be evaluated.

Important features are the degree of dispersion of fibres, pore size/distribution, preferred orientation, fibre dimensions and adhesion at the interface. Moreover, performance testing including strength, ductility, water vapour/liquid water response and biodegradation will be done, as well as more realistic testing of the materials.

Project Activities

To reach the targeted goals, the project partners work hand in hand and to make sure that the results can be transferred into the production process after the end of the project, and an intensive exchange between the partners and countries is achieved. The project work is portioned in various technical activities, which, in addition to the important aspects such as reporting, dissemination and explications represent the center of the project.
