  10. 10. Non-invasive O2 leakage detection for packed food Detection of packaging integrity during distribution and storage Principle: fluorescence lifetime detection by O2 sensitive fluorescent material in gas permeable hydrophobic polymer via blue LED reader pen Benefits: Non invasive detection of oxygen in oil, water, air Low-cost, fast sensors (< €0.5 cents/sensor) Sterilisation resistant Patented technology: WO 0163264 Licensed to Oxysense for food & non-food applications
  11. 11. 10 27-11-2013 Early new markers for monitoring food freshness Development of early markers & sensors to monitor freshness of relatively valuable perishable foods in packaging such as meat & fish
  12. 12. 11 27-11-2013 Identifying new markers for meat freshness Make successive GC-MS pictures of meat condition in time Assess product freshness apolar → polar Select most sensitive early markers volatile → less volatile

  15. 15. 14 27-11-2013 Colorimetric freshness indicator for fish products Principle: Array of sensors which visibly change color after interaction with dedicated chemical compounds (markers) Sensors consist of changing composition of porous nano particles with specific interaction for the relevant markers Colorimeteric (visual): LOD < 1 ppm
  16. 16. 15 27-11-2013 Colorimetric freshness indicator for fish products Benefits Low-cost and applicable by means of 3D printing technology Non invasive & acceptable shelf life (months) Low detection limits possible (< 1ppm) Very limited humidity & temperature influence Potential applications In stores: show 35% bargain sticker automatically? At home: show green sticker after persihable date? Safe Food 35% KORTING

  19. 19. 18 27-11-2013 TNO: Printed RFID sensor for smart packaging “Smart Label”, incl. printed circuit, IC, resistive sensor with sensing polymers on foil Aging of cod fish corresponds with higher trimethylamine concentrations. Smart Label measures higher resistivity, corresponding with significantly increased TMA levels. This can be used as indicator for perishable dates of cod fish. RFID chip (13.56 MHz) suitable for easy read-out for commercial readers & smartphones
  20. 20. Micro-encapsulation printed materials enhances functionality. The principle…. (Micro)encapsulation is widely used in the various industries shell material with different functionality core-shell encapsulate core material with base functionality (microcapsule) TNO encapsulation printer core liquid film core-shell
  21. 21. Printed microcapsules offers increased functionality An example in beverages… molten stearic acid mint syrup cold well defined, 200 µm encapsulates hot “flavor burst” in hot water
  22. 22. Challenges for FDA approved printed microcapsules Sensitivity for released gasses in smart packaging? Semi-conduction polymers, controlled release? functional polymer Base polymer or ink 7 µm shell thickness 85 v% core material well defined 200 µm encapsulates
  23. 23. 22 27-11-2013 Conclusions Smart packaging offers opportunities to reduce food waste & costs throughout the value chain. The “solution” can be achieved via a typical value chain approach: Get commitment at partners about most realistic food waste issue to solve Create market pull demand at retailers and… … a technology push demand at packaging/sensor/label chain partners Then: assess & apply TNO’s unique set of complementary expertise’s
