IFIA hopes that by having this certification, you will take an essential step in the commercialization of your innovation. Also, by entering international markets, you can contribute to the realization of the global slogan: Generating wealth through innovative knowledge.
The Summary of Innovation:
Nowadays, packaging is introduced as an industry in the world and different types can be enumerated for it. The packaging conveys the face of the product and the message of the manufacturer to the buyer and communicates and informs between them. The packaging gives the product character and protects the product against impact, humidity, climatic conditions, odors, microorganisms, pressure and disintegration and insects. In general, the most important goal of food packaging is to increase the shelf life of the product and other goals is to improve transportation, storage and make the appearance of the package attractive and marketable. Caviar with its high nutritional and economic value has received much attention, but the important point is the preservation and spoilage of these materials. Therefore, the use of nanotechnology in the packaging of these materials is an effective step.
Nowadays, metal particles are used in polymers used in food packaging to improve mechanical and antimicrobial properties. By reducing the size of particles to the nanometer level, their surface activity increases. As a result, the adsorption rate of these materials as antimicrobial material with the environment increases. Metals in the form of solid nanoparticles or metal oxides can be combined in different types of polymeric materials. In nano-packaging coatings, silver is the most antibacterial property against metal cations among various metal cations.
The product is a nano-packaging coating that is produced for food packaging with nanosilver particles. In addition to increasing the shelf life of food and preserving the organoleptic properties (aroma, taste, color) of the material, this product leads to the prevention of spoilage. The inside of the food is packaged and no nanoparticles are released into the product.
The distinguishing part of this product is the production of nanopacking coatings based on titanium oxide nanocatalyst, which greatly increases the antibacterial property. In general, titanium dioxide is a cheap material with high efficiency and also preserves maximum nutrients., Freshness and reduced microbial load are packed in food. Titanium dioxide can kill gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria. Also, due to its bright color and resistance to UV rays, this compound is widely used today for food packaging. Due to the importance of dioxide Titanium, its application as nano will increase the mentioned properties. Therefore, this adds to the importance of using titanium nano dioxide in the production of this packaging.
Why is this innovation eligible to receive the IIS certification?
With respect to the uniqueness of this laboratory in the food science and engineering industries and its special equipment, which has already been introduced in the production of products registered in the US patent, it is possible to introduce and import this valuable product to EU countries, subject to That the standard product innovation has been approved.
Moreover, twelve years of research activities at university and several related research institutes in the field of nanotechnology has led to high productivity and product’s efficient convert ability.
