This site is dedicated to the development of
decision tools based on numerical simulation and databases for the food
and packaging community.
The initial idea is to translate in a short way
laboratory made computational tools into operative tools:
verification according to the EU plastics directive 2002/72/EC and regulation 2004/1935//EC;
to optimize the design of safe packaging materials for food contact (with reduced migration);
to assess the contamination
level of packaged food available on the market (risk assessment);
to contribute to the evaluation
of the consumer exposure to substances orginating from plastic materials.
Click here to see some snapshots (the content depends on previous runs).
Videos and webinars are freely available in the left menu virtual experiments.
Publications, which are relevant with the content of this site, are given here. Some scientific
questions in our scope are detailed here. Unlimited browsing is authorized on cached pages.
For a complete access to numerical tools and databases in the left
menu, you need an account (it is free for a moderate usage).
Examples of numerical tools on our online servers (some of them require a valid account)
interfaces to numerical tools optimized for the food industry and the packaging industry,
molecular calculations, 3D visualization, search of molecules,
decision trees for classification and prediction,
simulation of the diffusion in 1D and 2D (free geometry),
dedicated decision tools (e.g. for recycled materials)
modeling under uncertainties and variabilities (probabilistic modeling),
assessment taking into account consumer and industry practices,
Java applets to illustrate the "universality" of diffusive phenomena at molecular scale,
several webinar and lectures in various fields in connection with the site,
an European database of transport properties in polymers.
Safe Food Packaging Portal version 3 (SFPP3) is available (freeware, modifiable)
SFPP3 = a freely distributable application server with rich-content clients and strong traceability requirements (click here to have an overview).
SFPP3 = obey to open standards and can be easily modified/updated (click here for the technical documentation).
Ask for an account and try SFPP3 online without installing it. Download SFPP3 and install it on your computer as a standalone (default) or deploy it on your LAN (win32 only, a Linux version will be made available).
Please read the license before installing and using SFPP3.
