Packaging News. Tightly Packed.

Dear Sir or Madam,

This month, our newsletter will whet your appetite for new developments that are designed to protect the environment. In all sectors of industry, companies are looking for more sustainable alternatives to traditional processes and are tapping into new sources of raw materials without having to sacrifice the quality of their products to do so. For example, manufacturing paper from a new raw material, the yellow cup plant which heralds from North America, is one example of an intriguing approach to research here. We also look at the current run of plastic recyclates and the trend of using paper for packaging that we are seeing more and more in consumer circles. A new process to obtain recyclates from materials that are usually considered very tough to recycle is being implemented in polystyrene boxes for fish in Norway. The properties of Airpop, a chemically recycled material, are comparable to the material that is normally used here.

Stay healthy and discover interesting news!

Although the use of recycled plastics is an important pillar of the circular economy, the recyclate market is nearly empty as of the beginning of 2022. In future, standards are supposed to ensure the availability of a sufficient amount of recyclates with consistent quality in order to supplement new material.
