Integrated chemical safety assessment of food contact articles
Funded by the ANR.

Food packaging is a source of chemical contamination of food due to the migration of substances, sometimes toxic, intentionally (compounds used in the basic formulation of the packaging) or unintentionally added (degradation products, impurities, etc.). In this context, the PACKSAFE project, coordinated by Prof Marie-Christine Chagnon (AgroSup Dijon), aims to develop a multidisciplinary approach (physics, chemistry, toxicology, chemometrics) to guarantee the safety of finished packaging (paper-cartons, plastics) and thus guarantee the health of consumers.
