AMAP stands for Active Modified Atmosphere Packaging and is an extension to [[EMAP_combined with_online_film_perforation | EMAP]]. This technique is used to extend the shelf life of products like vegetables and fruit by virtue of an altered atmosphere in the packaging. By perforating the packaging online and by simultaneously using (CO<SUB>2</SUB>) sca-catchers the atmosphere can be adapted to the specific product characteristics.

==Pros and Cons==
 +
'''Pros'''
 +
* Product has a wider transportation range thanks to extended shelf life
 +
* Less product loss in stores thanks to extended shelf life
 +
* No chemicals needed to extend shelf life of the product
 +
* A more constant product quality
 +
* Immediate adaptation of the packaging to the specific product
 +
 
 +
'''Cons'''
 +
* Extra work – respiration rate of product needs to be determined first
 +
* Relatively high knowledge level needed to translate measurement to packaging information
 +
* Investment in laser, gas system and respiration system
 +
* The use of sca-catchers raises the price a bit higher than for [[EMAP_combined_with_online_film_perforation]]
