'Greener' packaging with oil palm biomass

'Greener' packaging with oil palm biomass. [Newspaper] (2019)


Plastic is used extensively for food packaging due to its durability, flexibility and lightweight properties. Although convenient, many of the items are created for single use. Poor handling of plastic packaging, where they are not recycled and discarded haphazardly, will cause a negative impact to the environment that affects wildlife and humans alike. In addressing the issue, Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) recently signed a memorandum of agreement with Nextgreen Pulp and Paper Sdn Bhd to licence its oil palm biomass nanocellulose technology to produce greener paper packaging alternatives.
