ABSTRACT

Waste material from the fishing industry disposed off-shore exceeds 250 billion tons/year, and it is considered hazardous due to its high perishability and polluting effect, both on land and sea. Considering the actual production of chitin, chitosan and oligosaccharides from crustaceons, it is understandable how difficult it is to eliminate all the waste material obtained from food industry, therefore the need for more innovation and creativity. With this in mind we propose an industrial use of the natural chitin nanocrystals (known as chitin-nanofibrils-CN) to produce innovative cosmetics, food supplements and protective films that can improve our way of living while saving the environment.
