A team of scientists at the Department of Science and Technology-Industrial Technology Development Institute (DOST-ITDI) led by Dr. Blessie A. Basilia has come up with a biodegradable food packaging material that protects food and extends its shelf while being kind to the environment. This is made possible, according to Dr. Basilia, via the science called nanotechnology in which things are structured at the atomic and molecular levels.

 

Clay comes in layers tightly held together, so it is processed first so that it can blend effectively with starch. In Basilia’s work, clay is treated with ions in a process called ion exchange which results in wider spaces between the layers of the clay. This treated clay is called organoclay or nanoclay, its commercial name. Nanoclay is blended with thermoplastic starch made from cornstarch to help increase the latter’s strength.

 

The clay-plastic blend goes through the same process and equipment in making petroleum-based plastics. The resulting product passed the migration test required for packaging films which means that the materials in the product will not contaminate the food it is in contact with.

 

Plastic food packaging protects and extends shelf life of food and offers convenience to consumers. However, plastics are not biodegradable and pose harm to the environment. When disposed of indiscriminately, plastics clog waterways and contribute to flooding. Plastics that find their way to oceans cause serious harm to marine wildlife which mistake them for food

 

Thus this DOST-developed green packaging technology will not only help address the disposal of food packaging wastes but will also benefit the packaging and plastic industries in the country.

Nanotechnology is one of DOST’s priority among emerging technologies through its sectoral council Philippine Council for Industry, Energy and Emerging Technology Research and Development which funded and monitored the project.

BioPlastek

Session 1: IS THE SUCCESS OF BIOPLASTICS DEPENDENT ON CONSUMER BUY-IN?
Is it really important to engage the customer or will renewable materials just become part of the supply chain? If the consumer is to be engaged, how will it be explained? It’s way more complicated than recycling!!… This session features new consumer research and major brand owners who will talk about consumer engagement in bioplastics. Additionally there will be a panel discussion in which we will ask attendees for their opinions on consumer engagement.

Session 2: VISIONARIES: EARLY ADOPTERS FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Plastics manufactured from plant-based raw materials are becoming a reality. However, they come at a cost premium. This session will discuss why brand owners choose renewable materials for their products in spite of added cost. Speakers will also discuss how renewable materials have to coexist with recycling (raw materials as well as the product itself) — are these competitive or reinforcing in reaching sustainability goals? In addition, challenges related to biomaterial supply chains will also be covered.

Session 3: IS COST-PARITY OF BIOPLASTICS WITH FOSSIL-BASED PLASTICS ACHIEVABLE?
The successful commercialization and market penetration of biobased chemical and plastics depends most critically on being cost competitive with incumbent, fossil-based technologies and products. This session and the succeeding two will pinpoint the reasons why bioplastics are currently more expensive to produce than their fossil-based counterparts. It will identify what new technology initiatives are evolving to bridge the cost gap. The session will also explore if cheap ethylene from shale gas will dampen development of bioplastics.

Session 4: NEXT-GENERATION BIOMASS FEEDSTOCKS: KEY TO COST-COMPETITIVE BIOPLASTICS?
In this session, the pros and cons of alternative next generation biomass feedstocks, storage issues are assessed. The impact of densification of biomass for more cost-effective handling and transport are considered. Strategies for streamlining the biomass harvesting/biorefinery operations infrastructure will be described.

Session 5: PROMISING ROUTES TO COST-EFFECTIVE BIOPLASTICS
This session will focus on key process technologies such as cellulose hydrolysis, biomass gasification, genetically engineered fermentations, and various thermochemical and catalytic technologies. It will demonstrate that the above process technologies, plus scale-ups, utilization of existing supply chains, and alternative chemistries all contribute to provide economically viable bioplastic production.

Session 6: OPPORTUNITIES FOR BIOPLASTICS IN NONWOVEN/FIBER USES
The commercial adoption of a new material in any particular application depends on the right combination of need, performance, economics, customer receptivity, the competition, and a host of other case specifics. This session sheds light on the actual decision drivers that will determine the future potential for bioplastics in the nonwovens/fibers industries, with perspectives from a number of vantage points along the value chain.

Session 7: OPPORTUNITIES FOR BIOPLASTICS IN PACKAGING APPLICATIONS
Packaging is currently the largest application for bioplastics, largely due to the Coca-Cola’s PlantBottle. Despite this progress, the higher cost of “drop-in” bioplastics versus fossil-based incumbent resins has limited market penetration. In flexible packaging, performance as well as cost have limited acceptance of bioplastics. Speakers from packaged goods companies, packaging converters and bioplastics resin suppliers will talk about how these challenges might be successfully overcome.

Session 8: THE ROLE OF BIOPLASTICS IN CORPORATE SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGIES
How do brand owners evaluate sustainability of packaging? Do LCAs, carbon footprints and other techniques correctly measure the sustainability? Are bioplastics really better for the planet than petroleum-based plastics? Recyclable, compostable, bio-based: Which is environmentally better? How are bioplastics being included in corporate sustainability initiatives?

LiquiGlide gives foods the slip to reduce waste

This intriguing technology developed at MIT provides a slippery coating for containers
to improve efficiency and reduce food waste.


Rick Lingle, Technical Editor — Packaging Digest, 2/26/2013 9:53:54 AM





 

Liquiglide drawingLiquiGlide can be engineered to control the speed that the object, liquid or material slide over the surface by changing the materials or structure of the coating.Who hasn’t lamented at those last portions of mayo clinging to the interior of a jar or a Heinz 57 sauce that’s so thick it becomes increasingly difficult to dispense the flavorful condiment as the volume dwindles with use? 

So tantalizingly close, yet frustratingly inaccessible…for now.
Some product waste that has been previously thought of as unavoidable may not be so elusive with LiquiGlide, a technology developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology by five students and professor Kripa Varanasi. 

Developed in the Varanasi Research Group at MIT, the coating is made from nontoxic materials and is easily applied to food packaging. 

Industry Intel reported in mid-2012 that MIT’s “LiquiGlide coating is so slippery it allows all condiments to pour from the bottle. When applied to the inside of a bottle, the walls are so lubricated that sauces that would have normally stuck to the insides almost fall out. 

“The team estimates, that with this innovation, they would be able to make a dent on the estimated 1 million pounds of global food waste thrown out each year. In addition, they would eliminate the need for large squeeze-bottle caps, saving about 25,000 tons of petroleum-based plastics annually. 

According to MIT PhD candidate Dave Smith, LiquiGlide is almost like a structured liquid, because it is both rigid like a solid, yet lubricated like a liquid.” 

A composite of solid and liquid

What is LiquiGlide? Here’s the official description: “Liquid-impregnated surfaces are a patent-pending, super-slippery surface technology that comprise a composite of solid and liquid materials, where the solid holds the liquid tightly at the surface and the liquid provides the lubricity.”

Reportedly the initial application was aimed at coating car windshields, but it works equally well on many surfaces from airplane wings to containers made of glass, plastic, metal and ceramic, which covers a lot of ground in packaging for foods and other products.

The LiquiGlide website also offers this: “Application-specific custom formulations of the coating are created, so for food packaging, the coating is made from FDA-approved, edible materials.”

Interestingly, the coating can be engineered to control the speed that the object, liquid or material slide over the surface by changing the materials or structure of the coating. Thus, LiquiGlide can be tailored for the container type as well as for the product the customer wants to have slide more easily out of the container. 

It is so uniquely utilitarian that LiquiGlide has deservedly garnered a case load of high-profile accolades, including in late 2012 when it was recognized by Time magazine as one (of 26) of the Best inventions of 2012. Forbes also named it one of the best food inventions of 2012.

We reached out to the MIT LiquiGlide contacts a number of times by phone and email, but were unable to gain feedback for an update at press time. 

However, we did uncover a technical paper published in February 2013 in the technical publication Soft Matter (2013, 9, 1772) from RSC Publishing entitled “Droplet mobility on lubricant-impregnated surfaces,” which credits half of the same team members cited in the LiquiGlide literature including lead Varanasi. 

In the introduction, it provides background on a method-and the difficulty-of entrapping air pockets in a structured surface to enhance the sliding properties of materials. The paper offers a solution that involves “surfaces containing pockets of a lubricating liquid rather than of air. Stabilized by the capillary forces arising from the microscopic texture, the lubricant lets the droplet above it move with remarkable ease.” It also is stated that such non-wetting surfaces can provide self-cleaning properties.

These details simply underscore the fact that LiquiGlide is a slick development.

Apart from consumers’ ongoing frustration at not getting those last dabs of condiments from containers, the buzz for this out-of-the-box (bottle?) development could not have come at a more opportune time when the food industry is taking an ever closer look to reducing waste. 

At year’s end, one national consumer research organization, the Values Institute at DGWB singled out Food Waste Consciousness as one of its top five health trends predicted for 2013. 

Deep in the supply chain

And just last month, a new global campaign to cut food waste was launched by the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and partners: The Think.Eat.Save. Reduce Your Foodprint campaign, which is in support of the SAVE FOOD Initiative to reduce food loss and waste along the entire chain of food production and consumption. 

It’s at that last portion of the supply chain where the value-add of processing, packaging and transportation magnifies the cost of waste versus losses farther upstream, opening up food for thought for an option like LiquiGlide.

If this wonder coating has a sticking point, it may be cost: According to Time, the estimated cost per container for LiquiGlide is 25 cents, which puts it out of the reach of most packaged foods. 

However, as development continues across the many platforms it is applicable for, including non-packaging, costs will likely become more reasonable if not practical. It is conceivable this technology may be sliding into our futures faster than we think.

ACC Logo 322News reports indicate that Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg may propose restrictions on the use of polystyrene foam foodservice products in New York City, ostensibly as a way to increase recycling rates. American Chemistry Council (ACC) vice president of plastics Steve Russell issued the following statement:

 

“We would welcome the opportunity to explore polystyrene foam foodservice recycling with the City.
The technology exists to recycle polystyrene foam foodservice right now. California is making this work-22 percent of households there can recycle polystyrene foam foodservice cups, plates, bowls, clamshells and other containers at curbside (that’s more than eight million people). Similar programs don’t exist for other takeout foodservice.

 

“Many people mistakenly believe that paper cups and plates are being recycled-however, there is no significant commercial recycling of these products.

 

“Many people also mistakenly believe that paper cups and plates rapidly degrade in landfills. But modern landfills actually are designed to minimize the breakdown of waste, so contrary to popular public belief, most garbage does not readily biodegrade in them. Garbage essentially is entombed without the air, water and sunlight necessary to support the biological processes that help break down materials. Scientists have uncovered copies of National Geographic, legible newspapers and even whole carrots that have been buried in landfills for decades. Landfills are not compost piles.

 

“Polystyrene foam foodservice products make up less than one percent of our nation’s solid waste, according to EPA. They use significantly less energy and water to manufacture than paper alternatives and create significantly less waste by weight and comparable waste by volume.

 

“Polystyrene foam foodservice products are two to five times less expensive than alternatives, which saves the City’s agencies a significant amount of tax dollars.

 

“Polystyrene foam and other plastic foodservice products are affordable, convenient, sanitary and sturdy-they stand up to greasy chili, keep our hot drinks hot without scalding our hands and keep our food fresher and ready to eat. As more of us are eating and drinking far from home-at a daughter’s ball game, while driving to work, at church picnics, on the street corner-they help make possible the way we eat and live today.”

Biodegradable Plastics use increased rapidly in Costa Rica

Biodegradable Plastics use increased rapidly in Costa Rica

Central American countries Costa Rica, its small area, but over the years in the use and control of pollution of natural resources into a huge level of environmental protection of American States ranked first. Especially in the last three years, biodegradable plastic products used in Costa Rica is a significant increase.

    Costa Rica 米兰尼奥特 Juarez, Ms. CEO 西尔维娅维 Canada said in an interview recently that the company three years ago, the oxide-type bio-degradable technology into Costa Rica market. Now it seems that despite the biodegradable plastic products in Costa Rica, the plastic products market share of less than 10% but the growth rate is quite rapid.

    西尔维娅维 Ms. Canada said the technology can be oxide-type biodegradable plastic into a complete decomposition of the material can be micro-organisms in order to achieve environmental objectives. She said that although the production cost of biodegradable plastics than ordinary plastic high 5% to 10%, but in the long run, in order to protect the environment a little more money, far better than to put the years can not break down the waste to accumulate in the Earth the better. Consumers increasingly recognized that Costa Rica had the idea, because many consumers are now accustomed to buying can degrade in the environment-friendly plastic containers, packaging bags and bottles.

    According to 米兰尼奥特 Alvarez has released statistics on global production of plastic each year, nearly 220 million tons, of which about 2 million tons of plastic debris is being discharged into rivers and lakes. The company estimates that since 1930, approximately 90% of plastic waste without decomposition, is still left in the earth, polluting the soil, water and air. Some international environmental monitoring agency’s data show that each year about 1 million sea birds die because of plastic ingestion, many sea turtles are also due to mistake floating plastic bags or plastic film as a jellyfish eat and died.

    It is reported that, due to the promotion of biodegradable plastic products fit the global trend of environmental protection. Apart from outside Costa Rica, El Salvador and Guatemala to promote the Central American countries are gradually biodegradable plastic products.
