  2. 2. Take-Aways More sustainable food packaging decreases food waste, minimizes energy used in food processing, and the overall environmental/social/ impact of feeding people Industry considers more sustainable packaging sourcing and disposal separately 612.807.5341 / claire@packagingtechnologyandresearch.com / PackagingTechnologyAndResearch.com Biomass derived PE and PET are being adopted by industry as drop-in solutions Biomass derived PHA, PLA, Chitosan, and edible polymers have an innovation opportunity using value chain and systems thinking PTR for Catapult 2021 2
  3. 3. ABOUT PTR Dr. Claire Sand 3 Michigan State University Adjunct professor CalPoly Adjunct professor IUFoST Global FoodPackaging Curricula Head PackagingScience and Technology Editorial Board Journal of Food Science Reviewer PAC Consortium on Food Waste IFT Fellow Packaging columnist for Food Technology magazine 612.807.5341 / claire@packagingtechnologyandresearch.com / PackagingTechnologyAndResearch.com Owner Affiliations National Science Foundation Project Reviewer Claire Sand is a Global Packaging Leader with 30+ years of broad experience in the food science and packaging spectrum. Sand's mission is to enable a more sustainable food system with science and value chain innovations that more sustainably increases food shelf life and prevents food waste. She leads cross-functional efforts, infuses innovative solutions, provides compelling business and technology strategies and business cases, and generates implementation roadmaps for the packaging and food industry. Claire is Owner and Founder of Packaging Technology and Research and Gazelle Mobile Packaging and an Adjunct Professor at Michigan State University and CalPoly as well as Food Technology’s monthly Packaging columnist and a monthly contributor to Packaging Digest. She is an IFT Fellow, Riester-Davis-Brody life-time achievement in food packaging award recipient, serves on numerous Editorial Boards, is the author of the Packaging Value Chain, and is cochair of pacfoodwaste. Claire has held previous positions in basic research, development market research, and marketing in Germany, Colombia, and Thailand and at Total Quality Marketing, Nestle, General Mills, Kraft Heinz, Safeway, and in academia. Dr. Sand holds a doctorate degree in Food Science and Nutrition from the University of Minnesota and MS and BS in Packaging from Michigan State University. PTR for Catapult 2021

  8. 8. More Sustainable Packaging Prevents Food Waste
  9. 9. Consumers do not intuitively select more sustainable packaging MORE Sustainable Packaging needs to be Science-driven low environmental impact best consumer sustainability high environmental impact best consumer sustainability low environmental impact high environmental impact low consumer sustainability low consumer sustainability Lower environmental impact Best consumer sustainability perception 3 Concepts connected with consumers on sustainability and had low environmental impact 612.807.5341 / claire@packagingtechnologyandresearch.com / PackagingTechnologyAndResearch.com PTR for Catapult 2021 9

BIOMASS-DERIVED POLYETHYLENE (bPE) POLYETHYLENETEREPHTHLATE (bPET) POLYETHYLENE FURANOATE (PEF) POLYTRIMETHYLENE FURANDICARBOXYLATE (PTF) POLY(TRIMETHYLENE TEREPHTHALATE) (PTT) Require the least modification to value chain Have the most promise as drop-in solutions Bio-derived Recyclable Acceptable barriers Industry – Drop in Solutions ARE THEREFORE PTR for Catapult 2021 12
  12. 12. Selected Biomass derived polymers in use today 612.807.5341 / claire@packagingtechnologyandresearch.com / PackagingTechnologyAndResearch.com PTR for Catapult 2021 13
  13. 13. BIOMASS-DERIVED PHA PLA CHITOSAN EDIBLE POLYMERS Require a stronger value proposition than bio-derived Provide opportunities for innovation in: Value Chain modification Systems Thinking Bio-derived Sometimes degradable – isolated infrastructure and standards Industry – non-Drop in Solutions ARE THEREFORE PTR for Catapult 2021 14
  14. 14. Landfill 15 MOST SUSTAINABLE DISPOSAL PTR for Catapult 2021 Reuse it Biodegrade it OR Recycle it Waste to Energy Incinerate it Litter OR OR OR OR OR More sustainable packaging requires materials and design for Disposal options
  15. 15. 16 LCA TOOLS PTR for Catapult 2021
  16. 16. REDUCING TOXIC AND HARMFUL CHEMICALS IN OUR PACKAGING IS PARAMOUNT TO THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY (REUSE AND RECYCLING) AND DEGRADATION
  17. 17. Value Chain Modification & Systems Thinking for non-Drop in Solutions Examples Value Chain modifications • Master-pack rethink Systems thinking • Add value by addressing what foods need • For example, can to decrease barrier requirements if use: • Reduced headspace (KIND bars) with edible polymers • New means to get food to people • Inherent antimicrobial activity of Chitosan • PHA properties as a carrier for antimicrobials, antioxidants, hydrogels, indicators PTR for Catapult 2021 19

Bags should not break down in the environment because if they do they would release additives and chemical. They are only supposed to degrade in an industrial composting site. So, in essence, this is good news that did not breakdown. The "research" was insane. Better to assess if they breakdown in an industrial compost site; but, good to know they did not breakdown where they should not have. https://www.dezeen.com/2019/04/30/biodegradable-plastic-bags-research-university- plymouth/ PTR for Catapult 2021 21
