WHEYLAYER to Develop Protein-coated Plastic Films to Replace Synthetic Oxygen-barrier Layers

SpecialChem - Aug 30, 2011

WHEYLAYER is a 3 year R+D project that is being funded by the EC's Seventh Framework Programme under "Research for SME Associations." WHEYLAYER aims to develop whey protein-coated plastic films to replace expensive polymers and increase recyclability which will enable to replace currently used synthetic oxygen-barrier layers with whey protein. It would solve a multiple environmental and productivity problems at European level: finding a valid commercial use of currently discarded whey protein, and replacing harmful chemical based plastics with a natural by-product which would safeguard the performance and enhance the recyclability of substrate film, thus adding huge value for the European packaging and food industries....
