Description: On January 16, 2018, the European Commission adopted a new European strategy for protecting the environment from waste from plastic materials as one of the elements of the transition to a more circular economy “A European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”. It is intended to limit the use of plastic disposable items. In this regard, as one of the main solutions to the problem at the national level, it is proposed to switch to such plastic packaging, which is easily recycled. The European Union by 2030 should completely switch to the use of recyclable plastic packaging. It is intended to significantly limit the consumption of items that can become a source of microplastic (small pieces of not completely biodegradable plastics) in the environment. The Project has a fundamental character along with its real practical importance.

Title: The formulation of novel compositions and properties study of the polysaccharides based edible films and coatings with antimicrobial and antioxidant plant additives

ID: SK-BY-RD-19-0014
Type:  Bilateral cooperation
Duration: 2019-2022
Contact person: prof. Ing. Miroslava Kačániová, PhD.

Description: On January 16, 2018, the European Commission adopted a new European strategy for protecting the environment from waste from plastic materials as one of the elements of the transition to a more circular economy “A European Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy”. It is intended to limit the use of plastic disposable items. In this regard, as one of the main solutions to the problem at the national level, it is proposed to switch to such plastic packaging, which is easily recycled. The European Union by 2030 should completely switch to the use of recyclable plastic packaging. It is intended to significantly limit the consumption of items that can become a source of microplastic (small pieces of not completely biodegradable plastics) in the environment. The Project has a fundamental character along with its real practical importance. New data on rheological properties of casting solutions based on starch, other edible polymers and plant additives will be obtained. Taking into account that these solutions are typical colloidal systems (suspensions or emulsions depending on the aggregate state of the additives), new dependencies will be founded and explained. The compatibility of the polymer components in the presence of additions will be under study when casting solutions based on the blend of two polymers will be used for films preparation. The interdisciplinary character of the Project is important as well. New compositions for edible films with antimicrobial and antioxidant properties will be designed and the correlation between the amount of plant additive and special properties of the film will be recognized. The research instruments will consist of the rheological properties measurement, determination of thixotropy, assessment of physical and mechanical properties of the films, testing of their antimicrobial and antioxidant activity.
