Nanocrystals coatings prolong shelf life of products in market.

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.
