Estrogen Free Polymer Formulations for Food Packaging and Baby Products

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $134,264.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Recent scientific investigations have shown that plastics often leach endocrine disruptor chemicals (EDCs) into the environment. EDCs interfere in various ways with hormones, most commonly estrogens, and can have signif icant adverse effects on many behavioral… More
