EFSA accepts new monomer to list of monomers for plastics used in food packaging

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has accepted the safety of Eastman Tritan copolyester. The opinion paves the way for the European Commission to amend Directive 2002/72/EC to add a key monomer used in Tritan to its list of acceptable monomers for the production of plastics intended for use in food packaging. A new-generation copolyester, Tritan delivers the advantages of traditional copolyesters, such as clarity and toughness, but also offers high-heat and chemical resistance, improved design flexibility, and ease of processing. It can be used in a broad range of applications, including small appliances, infant care products, housewares and certain medical devices.
