"CARTONSAFE"

CARTONSAFE - RESEARCH TO PROVIDE PAPER AND CORRUGATED CARDBOARD WITH FUNGICIDAL AND VIRICIDAL CAPACITY THROUGH EXTERNAL TREATMENTS




DESCRIPTION

In the last two years, the consumption of corrugated cardboard packaging has increased due to several factors, among which the growth of electronic commerce stands out.
However, the current pandemic has also generated a special interest in security in all aspects, with many inquiries about whether boxes can transmit the virus by contact and many are still suspicious of packaging. Experts agree that the survival of the virus on the surface of corrugated cardboard is scarce, due to its porous surface, but it must be taken into account that not all corrugated cardboard is porous, since they can have surface finishes for commercial purposes, which makes its surface resemble plastic, where the virus remains active for a longer time.
The CARTONSAFE project will provide biocidal treatments for the surface of corrugated cardboard, based on natural treatments, to also preserve the environmental advantages of this material.

OBJECTIVES

The main objective of the CARTONSAFE project is the development of products with fungicidal, bactericidal and virucidal capacity, based on natural active ingredients, for their application on the surface of corrugated cardboard for the manufacture of packaging.

In addition to the main objective, the following specific objectives will be achieved:

- Evaluation of the effectiveness of biocide treatments for corrugated cardboard packaging, under different transport conditions.

- Evaluation of the influence of biocidal treatments on the physical-mechanical properties of corrugated cardboard, under different atmospheric conditions.

- Evaluation of the influence of biocide treatments on the physical-mechanical properties of corrugated cardboard packaging, subjected to transport simulation cycles.
