About the project
This project aims to develop a new food packaging technology enabling selective removal of environmental pollutants from seafood products as a novel route for reducing the exposure of seafood consumers to these toxicants.
The newly developed packaging material will complement the measures already taken by the authorities to reduce the public’s exposure to toxic pollutants through the consumption of fish. It will enable increased consumption of fish products without an increased risk of exposure to unhealthy levels of MeHg and dioxin, thus contributing to public health and growth of the Swedish fishing industry.
