Tech you should know about: functional barrier coatings for sustainable packaging and materials

Meet Pollene Mae Diente: one of our engineers who specializes in sustainable packaging technology.

With recent advances in sustainable materials, for instance the expansion of paper as a packaging base, she sees innovation in functional barrier coatings as a crucial next step.

This will ensure that the sustainable materials retain all of the properties that are required for packaging needs. For instance: being water proof, oil proof, odor proof, air-tight, and so on.

With such advances, it means that less sustainable materials can be phased out and a completely circular packaging world can be built!
