The CURCOL project aims at the most sustainable solutions.
We aim to use the pigment as dye not only directly in biodegradable plastics and paper, but also for
printing inks used to print on top of the packaging. These inks are aimed to be
waterbased. This is a challenge because curcumin based pigments are usually not water
Therefore Centexbel presents you this protocol, which gives users guidelines on how to use curcumin based colorants in inks and coatings.
