    Plastic recyclates produced from waste packaging have to meet high sensory requirements in order to be used for new products. Plastic recyclates often have off-odors, some of which have not hitherto been identified. The Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV has analyzed the sensory properties of post-consumer shopping bags made of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and originating from different collection systems.

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV will present the manufacture of 3D electronics using the roll-to-roll principle at the LOPEC international fair for printed electronics being held in Munich on 25-26 March 2020 (Hall B0, Stand 411). A new thermoforming process makes this possible. It allows higher degrees of forming via temperature profiling. It was developed at Fraunhofer IVV Dresden.

    The Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV, Dresden, has developed the new “Pack Peel Scan” measuring device for testing peelable packaging. Equipped with artificial intelligence it allows the effective evaluation of easy opening packaging systems. The opening forces for peelable, thermoformed packaging can thus be measured and tested in accordance with the relevant standards.

    The intersector and multidisciplinary research project "Circular Plastics Network for Training" (C-PlaNeT) was approved in May 2019 within the framework of the H2020-MSCA-ITN-2019 Calls for European Joint Doctorates, with funding of almost 4 million euros. The Fraunhofer IVV is participating in the project in collaboration with the Chair of Flavor and Smell Research at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS.

    The upcoming international fair of the meat industry IFFA from 4 to 9 May 2019 in Frankfurt will see the Fraunhofer IVV present new technologies for the efficient cleaning of meat processing plants and machinery. A versatile, mobile cleaning robot is used for this, with concomitant time and cost savings. In addition, innovative simulation software is allowing the rapid and effective design of spray cleaning systems. It guarantees effective and precisely targeted cleaning and saves time-consuming tests in the plant design phase. Both technologies will be presented in the VDMA Technology Lounge in Hall 11.1, B41.

    At the start of 2019 the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV started two research projects to pursue new technological approaches for improving the nutri-physiological properties of processed food products. The goal of the food technologists at the Fraunhofer IVV and their project partners is to lower the amount of saturated fatty acids in foods by 30%.
