Development of lacquers with tomato residue to coat the inside of cans and food packaging
Málaga | 03/20/2023

An international team of researchers led by experts from the research centre Instituto de Hortofruticultura Subtropical y Mediterránea "La Mayora" (CSIC-Universidad de Málaga) has converted this material into a biodegradable lacquer that acts as an internal coating for food cans. This resin repels water better and adheres more firmly to the metal than those containing biphenol A, better known as BPA, a chemical compound present in many everyday consumer products which is harmful to health.
