a promising new food packaging material

A promising new food packaging material has been developed by scientists at a Lithuanian university.

Made mainly from a plant-derived cellulose composite, the new material also contains clove essential oil along with ionic silver nanoparticles.

The material is biodegradable and should keep food fresh for longer than conventional plastic.
