Sinead Mellett is a scientific researcher on the Neptunus Project, which looks at sustainable seafood. Quality packaging is essential to the shelf life of seafood products. Today, the bulk of packaging is made from single-use plastics, thus representing a big source of pollution. The food processing industry is therefore looking for sustainable alternatives. Sinead speaks to Romina Pezzoli, Polymer Research Engineer at the Applied Polymer Technologies Gateway in AIT. Romina is passionate about packaging technology and dedicated to developing environmentally friendly solutions.
