Sustainable Food Packaging Technology Book Review:

Towards more sustainable packaging with biodegradable materials! The combination of the continuously increasing food packaging waste with the non-biodegradable nature of the plastic materials that have a big slice of the packaging market makes it necessary to move towards sustainable packaging for the benefit of the environment and human health. Sustainable packaging is the type of packaging that can provide to food the necessary protection conditions, but at the same type is biodegradable and can be disposed as organic waste to the landfills in order to biodegrade through a natural procedure. In this way, sustainable packaging becomes part of the circular economy. ?Sustainable Food Packaging Technology? deals with packaging solutions that use engineered biopolymers or biocomposites that have suitable physicochemical properties for food contact and protection and originate both from renewable or non-renewable resources, but in both cases are compostable or edible. Modified paper and cardboard with increased protective properties towards food while keeping their compostability are presented as well. The book also covers natural components that can make the packaging functional, e.g., by providing active protection to the food indicating food spoilage. * Addresses urgent problems: food packaging creates a lot of hard-to-recycle waste - this book puts forward more sustainable solutions using biodegradable materials * State-of-the-art: ?Sustainable Food Packaging Technology? provides knowledge on new developments in functional packaging * From lab to large-scale applications: expert authors report on the technology aspects of sustainable packaging

Sustainable Engineering of Biopolymer Composites Book Review:

Biodegradable plastics and composites have the potential to replace traditional plastics and their composites in a variety of applications, thereby enabling sustainable material and energy life-cycles. The envisioned material life-cycle that is investigated here, is a microbially produced class of bioplastics, poly(hydoxyalkanoates) (PHAs), which can be anaerobically degraded at the end of their serviceable life into a methane-rich feedstock. By recovering methane produced from controlled anaerobic digestion (AD) of this bioplastic and its composites at end-of-life, these materials can be engineered to create a sustainable and industrially viable material cycle. The application primarily addressed in this work is biodegradable wood-plastic composites (WPCs), bio-WPCs, that can be used in large-volume applications, such as the construction industry. This work is also applicable to bioplastic applications, such as containers and packaging. Widespread adoption of these and other bioplastic-natural fiber composites has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the consumption of fossil fuels as a material feedstock, and the accumulation of plastic in the environment and in landfills. In order understand and engineer this material cycle, one must understand the biogas production properties, such as rate and quantity, in the end-of-life anaerobic degradation process. This work investigates relationship between processing, properties, and biodegradation of biodegradable polymers (bioplastics) and biocomposites by (i) evaluating kinetic models to for bioplastic degradation and methane recovery, (ii) developing a methodology that can be used to predict and model methane generation from bioplastics and biocomposites, and (iii) investigating the anaerobic degradation mechanisms of these materials in simulated anaerobic landfills or AD facilities. The results from this work can be used as inputs to life-cycle assessments of material end-of-life, to help optimize biocomposite materials properties, and design future resource recovery centers targeted for biopolymer and biocomposite degradation, methane collection, and biopolymer production.
