Successful project review meeting
In September 2018, the NanoPack Work Package leaders came together for the fourth project meeting at the production site of Constantia Flexibles (CFlex) in Vienna, Austria. The meeting once again allowed the partners to present and discuss their most research results in the areas of: scale-up of methods for loading natural halloysite nanotubes with essential oils and incorporating them into polymers used in food packaging films, pilot NanoPack film production, progress towards regulatory compliance, and innovation management activities.
On the second day, the partners were taken on a tour of the Constantia plant and a live demonstration of NanoPack films being produced on the CFlex pilot line.
The meeting concluded the mid-term project review by the European Commission representative, who concluded that NanoPack has succeeded in meeting its objectives for the first half the project, and in some case exceeded the expectations in terms of results generated so far.
