Research to prevent mold

Start 9 Packaging research 9 Mold prevention

Molds endanger products made of leather and packaging made of corrugated board. They grow under certain conditions during transport, handling and storage.

In a BFSV research project, we determined the spore load to be expected during production, processing and the logistics processes. In addition, we were able to show how the hazard potential can be monitored on the basis of qualitative and quantitative variables.

To this end, critical limit values and corresponding checkpoints were defined.

In our research, we took a holistic view of all relevant processes at the manufacturer, tannery, forwarder and shipping company. We were able to develop a generally applicable prevention strategy that can be regarded as Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). Companies can integrate it into their quality assurance systems themselves and adapt it to changing boundary conditions as needed.
