Improving the performance of flexible plastics through innovative nanotechnologies for food packaging and technical applications.

The deliverable targeted at the end of the research is a single-layer packaging solution offering barrier properties at least comparable to those offered by current multi-layer films used in the food industry. The technology developed for the food-processing industry will also be exploited for the implementation of high performance thin encapsulation films for solar applications.

The aim of the consortium is to create a basis for a new packaging mode in Europe, especially in Germany and Wallonia.


Objectives and missions of Materia Nova

Within the consortium, Materia Nova performs:

  • The validation of higher performance films for the encapsulation of flexible (OH)PV applications.
  • The performance evaluation before and after encapsulation.
  • The evaluation of the ALD layers needed to reduce permeability rates for (OH)PV applications.
