The RISE institutes Innventia, SP and Swedish ICT have merged in order to become a stronger research and innovation partner for businesses and society.
During 2017 will be one of several websites within RISE. Please visit for more information about RISE.

Renewable barriers for packaging

This project will be devoted to both commercial and novel renewable barrier coatings, including nanofibrillated cellulose and hemicellulose. Application procedures, food contact safety aspects and the coating composition vs. Performance are examples of aspects that will be addressed.

What benefit will the research project bring?

The use of plant biopolymers in combination with application technology-driven research allow for a viable solution to replace e.g. aluminium and oilbased plastics as barrier materials.
