Advanced Materials and Recycling Technologies for Sustainable Packaging

About this Research Topic

In recent years, with the rapid development of the Internet and the logistics industry, the demand for packaging materials has increased substantially. As a result, resource consumption and environmental impact are becoming more and more prominent. Packaging serves a better life, and the research and development of new packaging materials and the efficient and clean recycling of packaging waste are urgently needed. Furthermore, when designing packaging materials and containers, it is necessary to consider future upgrades and reuse, forming a "cradle to cradle" sustainable model. At the same time, consider carbon emissions and environmental friendliness in the entire life cycle of material synthesis, production, and application, helping to build a green and low-carbon circular development economic system.

This Research Topic aims to collect the latest achievements and applications in packaging materials and packaging waste recycling technology and record future research needs. It will provide a platform for exchanging ideas, disseminating significant advances, and sharing concepts and visions in the field of sustainable packaging. We welcome Original Research papers, Reviews, Mini-reviews reflecting this subject's latest technology and future applications. Suggested contributions may include, but are not limited to:

• Biodegradable materials such as biomass materials, starch-based, fiber-based, protein-based composite materials, polylactic acid-based composite materials, polyvinyl alcohol-based composite materials, etc.
• Green chemical synthesis of materials involves the selection and sustainable applications of catalysts and solvents
• Functional modification and diversified requirements of materials
• The impact of materials on the environment and life cycle assessment
• Functional packaging materials and intelligent packaging technology
• Green treatment technology for waste materials
• Recycling of waste materials and green manufacturing technology


Keywords: Packaging materials, Green chemistry, Functional and intelligent packaging, Waste recycling and utilization, Environmentally conscious manufacturing


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
