This chapter supports SDGs 2, 9 and 12 by discussing the critical role that polymeric materials play in terms of food packaging - increasing responsible consumption and sustainability, supporting transport of food, and reducing food waste. The chapter also highlights the latest developments in bio-based/biodegradable food packaging which offers a more sustainable route than traditional synthetic plastic food packaging.
Beyond their traditional use as green solvents, new applications have become available for ionic liquids (ILs) in drug delivery.
There is a wide array of biomass utilisation pathways to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.
