Abstract

Nano-based packaging represents a fast growing segment within the packaging industry due to its ability to satisfy consumer needs as well as its ability to add and enhance multiple properties within the packaging systems. Such properties include improvement of the mechanical properties, antimicrobial properties, smart detection systems of spoilage and ripeness as well as improvement in the product stability. This has resulted in the introduction of different types of nano-based packaging materials in the market including bottles, storage bags and boxes, packaging films and aluminum foil. Among the main drivers behind the increase in nano-based packaging are product enhancement and the increase in the nano-trend within the packaging industry, thus forcing different packaging companies to invest in this area of research in order to be able to compete in such a growing market segment.
