Comparative Life Cycle Assessment of different pouches and alternative packaging systems for food (Pasta Sauce and Olives) on the European market

The “Comparative Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of different Pouches and alternative packaging systems for food (Pasta Sauce and Olives) on the European market” conducted by ifeu Heidelberg investigates the environmental performance of multi-material flexible pouch systems used for Pasta Sauce and Olives and compares it with those of alternative packaging systems i.e. glass jars and steel cans.
