Researchers from the Purdue University come up with a cellulose nano-crystals coatings as food packaging to prolong the shelf life of products.
This non-toxic and biodegradable packaging came from woods and plants. Moreover, it has optical transparency, high-thermal conductivity, and strength that makes it perfect for food packaging. Also, this sustainable packaging can help minimize food waste and can preserve natural resources.
Furthermore, Purdue aims to enhance its coatings to protect market items from rot for a long time.
