Welcome to miraculous Eco news once again,
In today’s time the plastic has become the heart and soul in every work but most importantly it is also used majorly for packaging. Even after banning by the government, its usage has not been declined and has contributed to an increase in the garbage.
Thanks to the American Chemistry Society, there has been a development of new material used for packaging which is made up of milk protein.
Process of this material is being shown in the following video-
The protein-based films are powerful oxygen blockers that help prevent food spoilage. When used in packaging, they could prevent food waste during distribution along the food chain,” says research leader Peggy Tomasula, D.Sc.
And spoiled food is just one issue. Current food packaging is mainly petroleum-based, which is not sustainable. It also does not degrade, creating tons of plastic waste that sits in landfills for years.
Development of this type of packaging material can end the plastic packaging trend and will usher new era which will be biodegradable and ecofriendly in nature.
