Sustainable Food Packaging Technology

by Athanassia Athanassiou

The book deals with packaging solutions that use engineered biopolymers or biocomposites that have suitable physicochemical properties for food contact and protection and originate both from renewable or non-renewable resources, but in both cases are compostable or edible. Modified paper and cardboard with increased protective properties towards food while keeping their compostability are presented as well. The book also covers natural components that can make the packaging functional, e.g., by providing active protection to the food indicating food spoilage.

 

Athanassia Athanassiou is Tenured Senior Researcher at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genoa. Italy. After her PhD, obtained from the University of Salford, UK, she got a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Lasers in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, where she was associated researcher. From 2006 to 2010 she was a Senior Researcher at the National Nanotechnology Laboratory of the CNR-Istituto di Nanoscienze in Lecce, Italy, and founded the group of Smart Materials at the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia in Genoa in 2012. She has a broad range of experimental experience in fields such as development, processing & characterization of composite nanomaterials, smart materials responsive to external stimuli, laser-matter interactions, steady state/transient spectroscopy, surface science, and nanofabrication. She has published about 250 articles in refereed journals, she is the author or co-author several book chapters, she is the inventor of 20 patents, 12 of them already filed, and she has several oral and invited contributions to international conferences.
