Graphene for packaging
Date 10.14.2019 | Category: News
The European Commission Graphene Flagship project has won a representative from the packaging industry to explore possible future applications of graphene in food and beverage (F&B) manufacturing. Graphene is a carbon-based material, one of the thinnest known to mankind, one atom thick, while also being incredibly strong: around 200 times stronger than steel. It is an excellent conductor of heat, electricity and has a wide range of light absorption abilities. Graphene material could bring breakthrough innovations with unlimited potential for integration in almost any industry.
Prof Konstantin Novoselov, Physicist and Nobel Prize Winner said: ‘Graphene has the potential to revolutionise a range of processes and industries. Since Graphene’s first isolation in 2004, we have seen tremendous success and marketplace application of the material within electronics and automotive industries, I’m looking forward to the next phase of the Graphene Flagship and exploring potential innovations in the packaging industry.’Source: Tetra PakAuthor: Sossna
