Region of Intervention: NORTH

Beneficial Entity: J.A.BEIRA LDA

Approval Date: 24-11-2016

Start Date: 15-12-2016

Date Completed: 12-14-2017

Total Eligible Cost: 20.000€

Financial support of the EUROPEAN UNION: FEDER – 15.000€

Objectives, Activities and Expected / Reached Results: With this project we intend to investigate, select and if necessary manipulate / develop, with the help of the Technological Center of Cork, the best glues for bonding the capsules of different materials to cork stoppers. The composition of the glues must respond adequately to the application and functional requirements as well as to existing European legislation for food contact products.

Global and specific migration work is being developed as a function of the alcohol content of the beverages to be filled and the existence of compounds in the composition of the glues, whose limits are subject to international restrictions, for which the available data do not quantify these parameters.

The compounds to be investigated and quantified are analyzed with adjusted migration techniques and sophisticated instrumental techniques. Colas are considered in terms of the various food safety regulations applicable to materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.

The project is currently underway, as planned and on schedule.
