Expert Opinion7.1 nGimatnGimat is an intellectual property company involved in nanoengineered materials such asnanopowders, thin film coatings, and devices.The company is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, USA The nanopowders part of thebusiness is based out of nGimat LLCs office in Lexington, KY, USA.7.1.1 Trends and Developments in the Nano Packaging Market andTheir CausesVisiongain: What would you say are the key trends and developments in the global nanopackaging market and why?Yongdong Jiang: The current packaging industry is trying to meet as many customers´requirements as possible. The trend is to provide packaging technologies to improve the foodquality, which is enabled by the application of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology has beensignificantly increasing its impact on the packaging industry in recent years. Present major markettrends include enhancing the performance of packaging materials, increasing shelf life,antimicrobial packaging, incorporation active components to provide functional performance, andinteractive packaging. Nanotechnology enables the alteration of the structure of packagingmaterials on molecular scale to give the materials multifunctional properties. With differentnanostructures, the packaging can obtain various gas/water vapor permeabilities to fit therequirements of preserving snacks, fruit, vegetable, beverage, wine and other food. By formingnanocomposites, packaging materials with significantly improved light- and fire-resistance, mechanical and thermal performance, UV absorption, and reduced gas absorption,anti-counterfeit, anti-temper, and self-healing can be produced. These properties can significantlyincrease the shelf life, efficiently preserve flavor & color, and facilitate transportation & usage.Further, nanostructured antimicrobial films can effectively prevent the growth of bacteria andmicroorganism and ensure the food safety.

Leading Companies in the Nano Packaging Market8.1 Alcoa, Inc.• Headquarters: New York, USA• CEO: Klaus Kleinfeld• Revenue: $23.70bn (year ended 31 December 2012)• Employees: 61,000• Website: http://www.alcoa.com/global/en/home.asp• Ticker: AA listed on NYSE• Investor Relations: +1 2128362674Alcoa has been a major player in the packaging sector since its emergence, and has a strongfocus on metals, namely aluminium. As the leading producer of aluminium and fabricatedaluminium, Alcoa shows a dedication to innovation which has seen the firm’s initiatives makebreakthroughs in a number of sectors, from packaging to aerospace and construction. The largestsegment of Alcoa’s sales revenue comes from primary metals and global rolled products, withengineered products and solutions, and aluminium closely behind. Over half of all sales originatein the US, with Europe taking a quarter, and the remaining volume coming from Asia Pacific andother Americas regions.With a strong focus on aluminium, Alcoa has dedicated time to exploring innovative strategies.The Company claims that over the course of 2012, it shipped enough aluminium container sheet tomake 100bn recyclable aluminium cans, within an industry that boasts an impressive recyclinghistory in that 75% of all aluminium produced since 1888 remains in active use today.In 2009, Alcoa and RUSNANO signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore opportunitiesfor applying nanotechnology in the aluminium industry. The two companies have identified anumber of promising technical and commercial fields to pursue together. These include off-shoreoil and gas drilling stations, high-efficiency power transmission, next-generation lighting, energy-efficient buildings and transportation systems and green packaging.Alcoa has been present in Russia since 1993. In 2005, the company purchased two leadingaluminum fabricating facilities Alcoa SMZ (formerly the Samara metallurgical plant) and AlcoaMetallurg Rus (formerly Belaya Kalitva metallurgical production plant.). Alcoa has modernized thefacilities, investing more than $750 million in upgrades. Together with RUSNANO, Alcoa continues
