Condensation of water vapour on food packaging films not only reduces the visibility of the packaged contents, but can also result in degradation of food quality and freshness. Modification of film properties through the use of anti-fog additives can prevent the occurrence of condensation and fogging. The additives can be incorporated into polyolefin film resins to form a masterbatch. The team has successfully produced an anti-fog masterbatch with high concentration of anti-fog agent in polyole...

Synthetic pesticides used in conventional agriculture and especially greenhouses have significant impact on public health and environmental safety due to their vast amount of uncontrolled and indiscriminate use. They accumulate on food products, causing acute or long-term chronic symptoms in consumers. Therefore, the excessive use of pesticides has been a critical public health issue in the past decades.  These problems show that there is a need to find new ways that can help to reduce the use ...

Reverse osmosis (RO) membranes are used in the field of desalination technology. Nowadays, more than 16 million m3/day of water is treated by this means. RO membranes can be classified by the type of membrane material as cellulose acetate, thin-film composite and ceramic membranes. Thin-film composites (TFC) are the most widely used membranes in the global market. Recent developments focus on additives for the active layer of TFC desalination membranes, which change the chemistry and structure ...

The microporous polypropylene film was developed through a biaxial film stretching process using a precursor polypropylene sheet with an enriched metastable crystal form. The specific crystal structure was induced by an appropriate nucleating agent at the ppm-level. The subsequent proprietary stretching induces a change in the crystal form and forms highly connect nano-micro voids. The stretching conditions play an important role in tailoring the ultra-high gas permeable capability.

The world environment is being destroyed by indiscriminate waste disposal. Many enterprises have developed innovative waste treatment technologies. A South Korean-based company has developed the Polyethylene Terephthalate (PET) chemical recycling technology. PET waste is usually originated from beverage bottles, plastic film and fibers. In general there are two methods of recycling PET waste: direct materials recycling and chemical recycling. Unlike direct material recycle method that converts...
