We are a partner of “BioFoodPack” project

May 20, 2019

BIOFOODPACK aims to develop a sustainable biocomposite food packaging material to actively interact with foodstuffs, leading to improved food safety with minimal processing, reducing food loss and waste. Antimicrobial and antioxidant properties of natural resources are combined with different fillers to achieve water resistant materials with enhanced mechanical and gas barrier properties and electrically conductive for in-pack sterilization by pulsed electric fields.

BIOFOODPACK will provide a food packaging material based on abundant recyclable and biodegradable biopolymers,, which will actively protect food with reduction of food waste, a huge nowadays problem. The implementation of packaged food sterilized at low temperature will extend shelflife, maintaining organoleptic and nutritional characteristics of fresh food. A multidisciplinary team will work interactively to generate innovation and market exploitable products.

Industrial scale-up of Pulsed Electric Fields technology for natural fruit juice processing

The increasing consumers’ interest in minimally processed foods, with high nutritional values and more “fresh-like” characteristics is pushing food processors towards the search for viable alternatives with respect to already settled procedures used for Mass Transfer processes. Through the PUREJUICE project, Energy Pulse Systems (EPS) will validate the implementation of a novel Pulsed Electric Fields (PEF) system within the juice production lines of different fruit matrices: pear, red fruits/berries, tropical fruit, stone fruit and grapes. PUREJUICE constitutes a promising alternative or complement to the standard enzymatic maceration stage for the pre-treatment of raw materials in fruit juice processing. Starting from remarkable results obtained with the EPULSUS technology applied to “natural” apple juice production within the industrial facility of a global producer, PUREJUICE aims to prove the technological and economic feasibility of the application of the Apple solution to the processing of other fruits.
