    Abstract : Due to climate change and plastic pollution, there is an increasing demand for bio-based materials with similar properties to those of common plastics yet biodegradable. In this respect, cellulose is a strong candidate that is already being refined on a large industrial scale, but the properties differ significantly from those of common plastics in terms of shapeability and water-resilience.

    Abstract : Forest biomass is expected to play an increasingly important role in tomorrow´s global bio-economy as one of the main renewable sources of materials, chemicals and energy. In the framework of the biorefinery concept, the forestry industry is looking for new processes to utilize several fractions in the biomass (cellulose, hemicelluloses, lignin etc. READ MORE

  5. 5. Edible and Biodegradable Whey Protein Films as Barriers in Foods and Food Packaging

    Author : Martin Anker; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : water vapor permeability; critical gel concentration; BETA-lactoglobulin; whey protein; mechanical properties; moisture content; microstructure; glass transition temperature; oxygen permeability;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the characterization of whey protein films. The films were cast from heated aqueous solutions and dried in a climate room at 23 °C and 50% relative humidity for 16 h. The microstructure of the films was found to be dependent on the protein concentration, the plasticizers, and the pH. READ MORE
