Idea Name: Nanopakkējingu
Slogan: Better, Healthier, Affordable & Safer
Startup Domain: Process Improvement
Abstract:
    Nanopackaging is the future of packaging; with combining clay nanoparticles in the plastics that are used for packaging; it can be made sure that the product packed is safe, spoilage free and fresher.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    According to a report by consulting firm Priority Metrics Group; market for nano-packaging will double by 2014 reaching more than $8 billion. Right now, there is a serious health concern of plastic degradation and poisoning; that newer, safer and greener alternatives are needed to meet expectations.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   22% of Pakistans population is undernourished. With NanopakkÄ“jingu; resources could reach the affected areas of Pakistan. Packed products will have shelf life of 6 months; spoilage & shatter free. Packaging is lighter, stronger, heat resistant & flavor saver; blocking harmful gases from reaching it.
How will the solution works
    The nanoparticles are integrated throughout the plastic and are able to block oxygen, carbon dioxide, and moisture from reaching fresh meats or other foods. The nanoclay particles also make the plastic lighter, stronger, and more heat-resistant. The plastic bottles contain clay nanoparticles that are as hard as glass but far stronger, so the bottles are less likely to shatter. The layout of the nanoparticles is keeping the liquid from spoilage and flavor problems and giving it up to 6 months.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Other packaging companies as they try to come up with other alternatives to save their products. But, our product is different because it does not use chemical preservatives to save the products rather uses clay nanoparticles bound with plastic to help with better packaging.
