  1. 1. Food Packaging for Sustainable Development

    Author : Helén Williams; Fredrik Wikström; Ole Jørgen Hanssen; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Packaging; sustainable development; service perspective; food losses; food waste; consumer interaction; life cycle assessment - LCA; consumer value; Miljö- och energisystem; Environmental and Energy Systems;

    Abstract : Packaging has been on the environmental agenda for decades. It has been discussed and debated within the society mainly as an environmental problem. Production, distribution and consumption of food and drinks contribute significant to the environmental impact. However, consumers in the EU waste about 20% of the food they buy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sustainable Packaging of Organic Food: Myth or Reality?

    Author : Helena Lindh; Förpackningslogistik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Packaging; Features; Functions; Food; Organic; Life cycle; Eco; Sustainable Packaging; Development; Design;

    Abstract : Previous research has argued that packaging has a great potential to contribute to sustainable development, but how to put this potential into practice is not yet fully explored. The theoretical foundation of the research presented is at the intersection of packaging logistics and sustainable development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Food and Packaging Interactions Affecting Food Quality

    Author : Fredrik Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : sorbed vegetable oil; oxygen transmission rate; food packaging; supercritical fluid extraction; inertness test; refillable PET bottles; permeability; aroma; interactions; sorption;

    Abstract : Food and packaging interactions that may impair the food quality have been studied and methods to determine these interactions have been developed. An off-line supercritical fluid extraction method using carbon dioxide was developed and used to extract sorbed low molecular weight compounds from polymer films. READ MORE

    Abstract : Roughly one third of all the food produced worldwide goes to waste. The global goals for sustainable development set by the United Nations in 2015 call for a 50% reduction of food waste per capita by 2030. We thus face several major food waste challenges that need academic and practical attention. READ MORE

  5. 5. Migration from plastic food packaging during microwave heating

    Author : Jonas Alin; Minna Hakkarainen; Sahar Al-Malaika; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; migration; food packaging; microwave; degradation; food simulant; antioxidant;

    Abstract : Microwave heating of food has increased rapidly as a food processing technique. This increases the concern that chemicals could migrate from food packaging to food. The specific effect of microwave heating in contrast to conventional heating on overall and specific migration from common plastic food storage boxes was studied in this work. READ MORE
