Iranian researchers at the University of Tehran have developed a kind of packaging that is edible in addition to being highly biodegradable. “Synthetic biofilms are one of the most important components in biodegradable packaging,” said project manager Milad Rouhi. “Synthetic polymer-based biofilms are usually stronger, more sustainable and multi-functional compared with the natural type.” New nanotechnology methods were introduced for improving the performance and efficiency of these polymers in food packaging, Rouhi said, Mehr News Agency reported.
