“Safe and compliance-by-design” supports the product development of food contact materials (FCM)
The main application area is different kinds of FCM but also packages for other purposes, e.g. medicinal packages. Besides the R&D for FCMs, we have successfully applied the “Safe and compliance-by-design” approach in developing new bio-based barrier materials and novel mouldable web structures, and in designing new sensors for detecting food quality or leakage of modified atmosphere packages.
The approach also helps to ensure the safety of new nanotechnology-based materials, e.g. for nanocellulose films and package solutions utilizing printed electronics. The approach is utilized in both public and confidential R&D projects, e.g. in the recently ended “Safe food package solutions of future” project funded by EU’s European Regional Development Fund.
Our customers tell us that collaborating with VTT adds value in a number of ways. It brings fresh thinking to the table, offers proven technologies that can be tailored to their specific needs, and accelerates the development and implementation process.
How we work
Working with VTT is different. Instead of developing everything internally or working with companies pushing proprietary solutions, we function as an extended part of your team. With VTT, you are tapping into platform chemical sector research and development that is both deep and broad.
