This PhD project aims the post-harvest management improvement of fruit (whole and fresh-cut fruit), extending its shelf-life; considering the use of compound from waste materials of food production chain or alternative resources, to develop new Edible Coatings. Novelty is the use of edible coatings obtained from crop residues of Posidonia oceanica, a Mediterranean seagrass widely spread on the coasts of Sicily, which is responsible for accumulation of biomass on the beaches. To satisfy the objective we would like to create an interaction between 1-MCP and coating.
