New results from YPACK

A new YPACK article has been published under the title ‘Electrospun Antimicrobial Films of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) Containing Eugenol Essential Oil Encapsulated in Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles’.

The main goal of the study was to develop biopolymer films with long-term antimicrobial capacity. These could possibly be applied in active food packaging applications, such as YPACK.

New results from the YPACK project: ‘Preparation and Characterization of Electrospun Food Biopackaging Films of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) Derived From Fruit Pulp Biowaste’.

In this study different ways to purify biopolymers from fruit pulp were explored. Fruit pulp is an industrial by-product of the juice industry and could possibly produce material adequate for food packaging applications.
