The main aim is to develop biopackaging for organic and eco product lines that offers the same environmental credentials as the product that it contains through a combination of nanotechnology and active packaging.

It will be based on an environmentally friendly biomaterial such as a Poly(lactic acid) (PLA) bionanocomposite and a natural active agent with antioxidant properties.

The incorporation of nanoclays to the biocomposite is to improve the barrier properties of the PLA, while the incorporation of natural antioxidants in the packaging is to delay the degradation of cosmetic creams.
