Agroindustrial waste as basis for manufacture of biodegradable packaging

First publication date: 15/07/2012

The design of packaging based on biopolymers must take into account considerations such as being able to manufacture materials with the required properties for the desired application. Aware of this, researcher Pedro Guerrero obtained biodegradable materials using the processing techniques employed in obtaining synthetic materials, revaluing an industrial sub-product (soy protein) for the manufacture of food packaging.
