Rutgers University researcher develops bio-based that be switched on

July 6, 2022 |

In New Jersey, aiming to produce environmentally friendly alternatives to plastic food wrap and containers, a Rutgers scientist has developed a biodegradable, plant-based coating that can be sprayed on foods, guarding against pathogenic and spoilage microorganisms and transportation damage. 

The scalable process could potentially reduce the adverse environmental impact of plastic food packaging as well as protect human health.

The research was conducted in concert with scientists at Harvard University and funded by the Harvard-Nanyang Technological University/Singapore Sustainable Nanotechnology Initiative.
