A student at Swansea University in the United Kingdom has demanded the discovery of a special tray to reduce the amount of plastic waste generated from meat wrappers. Ala al-Azki, a Syrian student, claims that there is no separate plastic to absorb water under the tray he made. It does not have to be discarded once. This tray is recyclable. News from the BBC.
In the UK alone, about 800,000 tons of plastic waste is generated each year for packaging meat. About 5 to 6 percent of this waste is generated from meat trays. The meat is sold by placing the meat on a tray and wrapping it in plastic packets. The trays are basically made to absorb water and are not perishable. Al-Azki claims that his trays are 100% recyclable.

According to the student, special gels suitable for water absorption are used in the trays which are usually used for wrapping meat. For this reason, the water in the meat cannot leak out from inside the wrapper. The gels absorb the water. After removing the meat, the wrapper is no longer usable. Similar methods are used to make diapers and sanitary napkins.

Al-Azki claims that no such gel was used under the tray he discovered. Rather, it is designed with holes in the bottom. The water leaking from the meat will accumulate in that hole. However, it will not leak out of the package.
After removing the meat, it can be washed in tap water. This packet can be recycled along with other household items. It is safe to use as it does not contain any chemicals.

Al-Azki is pursuing a doctorate in engineering at the University of Swansea. He further said that if the wrapper made using special tray is hung upside down, moved or thrown away, there will be no problem. That is, as long as it does not burst, there is no chance of fluid leaking out of it.

Al-Azki said the technology could be used for food packaging, but could be used for many other purposes. He said the technology used to make this special tray can be used to make diapers or similar products.

Meat Promotion Wales, a Welsh-based meat marketing authority, says consumers want to make sure food is prepared in an environmentally friendly way.

The tray was created by Al Azki in association with Luxembourg-based wrapping company Clockner Pentaplast. Several of the UK’s leading food marketing companies, including Sensburis and Asda, have begun using the tray.
