FunFlex Pilot Case, which was selected through the FlexFunction2Sustain Open Call, has reached a successful conclusion. In the project, LEYGATECH collaborated with the FlexFunction2Sustain consortium to address the challenging topic of surface functionalization for circular flexible food packaging. The project, which involved experts from diverse sectors, aimed at developing and implementing novel multilayer structures based on the use of advanced coating or nanolayer that ultimately will insure recyclability to single-use food packaging solutions.
In order to execute th Pilot Case, LEYGATECH was using the combined services of FlexFunction2Sustain partner: Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP and IVV, IPC – Centre Technique Industriel de la Plasturgie et des Composites, INL International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory & Sonnenberg Harrison Partnerschaft:
- Development of PE functionalization;
- Evaluation of the solutions and validation of the best structure;
- Compliance with standards, Food contact assessment and Intellectual Property analysis.
The conclusion of the Pilot Case brought valuable insights and lessons learned. We identifing key takeaways that will inform future initiatives and contribute to the collective knowledge in the respective field. Moreover, the project’s findings will be used to improve the FlexFunction2Sustain offering and to inspire other initiatives tackling similar challenges.
