The need to protect drugs, medical devices, and new types of medical packaging, such as auto-injectors and prefilled syringes, etc., has created a need for innovative solutions to meet the challenges of oxidative degradation.
What are the big trends that will influence beverage packaging in 2021?
Find out as Wassim Labban, Vice President, Rigid Packaging at Husky Injection Molding Systems takes us through the top 10 trends to watch for. These include: changing consumption patterns, rising e-commerce, new considerations for hygiene and food safety, sustainability, premium packaging, smart packages and more.
Optimization of packaging at levels of packaging is an important exercise that needs to be undertaken to ensure best utilization of resources including materials & energy.
In this review, we take a look of some of the key elements which go into the design of optimized packaging.
G-FP is a cross linking polymer dosed in the process of paper making. The fundamental performance objective of G-FP is to cross link multiple small fibres into a longer fibre, thus mimic the virgin fibre performance from the domestic sourced short fibre based OCCs.
Michelman expands its Portfolio by introducing Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) Certified Compostable Coatings
As we look to innovate a more sustainable future for our planet through development of packaging that fulfills the vision of the Circular Economy, existing paper-based foodservice packaging (FSP) has inherent end-of-life challenges, resulting in a focus on developing compostable packaging.
Total Corbion PLA has released its whitepaper outlining its position on the preferred end-of-life options for PLA bioplastics. The whitepaper also clarifies where PLA products and applications can significantly contribute towards the circular economy.
Over the past couple of years plastics have become the public face of the waste pollution crisis, prompting an
unprecedented consumer and regulatory backlash that shows no sign of stopping. Industry is responding by switching to other materials without considering their environmental impact relative to plastics, or whether sufficient local waste collection systems are in place.
The White paper authored by Mark Victory highlights the gap in consumer understanding of the relative environmental impact of nonplastic alternatives and the unintended consequences this is having across the recycling industries.
The pandemic is reshaping their views about sustainable packaging materials in ways that will force the whole value chain to act quickly.
“Ever wondered what are the main differences between Production Analytics and Manufacturing Execution System (MES) and what they can do for your packaging factory? In this article, PackIOT’s goal is to help you understand and identify what distinguishes these two systems and help you make better decisions for your business. While it is possible to identify common functionalities between production analytics and MES, they are very different tools used for different jobs. Considering that most manufacturing companies consist of fluid operations with continual change in schedules and needs, production analytics might really be what will leverage your business to the next level.”
EMMTEC services has released a ‘ White Paper which provides insightful data on ” how to control the product quality of recycled PET polymer and packaging” . In addition, the right set of chemical analyses techniques to detect relevant substances and PET properties are discussed.
