"Foodmigrosure" – Modelling Migration from Plastics into Foodstuffs as a Novel and Cost Efficient Tool for Estimation of Consumer Exposure from Food Contact Materials
Sponsor: EU

The main objective of the European research project FOODMIGROSURE was to provide a novel and economic tool for estimation of consumer exposure to chemicals migrating from food contact materials. The tool is based on a physico-chemical migration model that describes mathematically the migration processes from plastics into actual foodstuffs under any foreseeable contact conditions.
