Riassunto analitico
WHEYLAYER is a 3 years project started on November 2008 and it’s funded by the EC’s Seventh Framework programme under the “Research for SME Associations”.<br>The aim of the project is to replace currently used synthetic oxygen barrier layers (EVOH) with whey protein coatings, finding a valid commercial use if this currently discarded protein. Other goal of the research is to increase the recyclability of the substrate films in order to obtain high value products increasing the importance of the European packaging and food industries [Anonymous (a), 2009].<br>The role of UNIPI in this research is to test the WHEYLAYER flexible packaging by mechanical and thermal analysis and to find the best way to increase the recyclability of these materials.<br>
