A investigadora Idalina Gonçalves e uma amostra do bioplástico feito de batataAt first sight, the food packaging developed by the researcher Idalina Gonçalves at the University of Aveiro (UA) looks like those made of plastic commonly used by the food industry and commercial surfaces. But any resemblance to synthesized materials from oil derivatives and that, increasingly, constitute an environmental problem, is only due to the aspect. Developed exclusively from potatoes, UA’s bioplastic for food packaging aims at putting an end to the dictatorship of synthetic plastics. Besides being biodegradable, the new bioplastic’s ingredients promote a better conservation of food when compared to traditional plastics.
