Why designing the next generation of sustainable packaging will rely on digital molecular simulations


Jeffrey Sanders
Product Manager


  • What are the unique requirements for formulations of sustainable packaging?
  • What are the challenges to develop carbohydrate and starch based packaging with traditional design approaches?
  • Presentation will describe how molecular simulation can reproduce and predict experimental mechanical and chemical properties of bio-sourced materials, and provide fundamental insights for product development
  • Case study: How molecular simulation and informatics can aid in selection and design of sustainable packaging formulations
