Project to extend the shelf life of meats thanks to biodegradable packaging

Pollution from single-use packaging plastics is a major sustainability problem that needs innovative solutions. The YPACK project, funded by the European Union (EU) and led by the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC), has developed and patented a material from by-products of the food industry as an alternative to traditional food packaging.

The new packaging can lengthen the shelf life of meat, fish or vegetables, and degrade in a maximum period of 90 days after it is discarded, while it can reduce food waste, which is one of the objectives of the strategy of the circular bioeconomy of the EU.
