Design4Recycling: flat plastic bottle for sustainable wine enjoyment

Plastic wine bottles
If wine bottles were designed for the first time today, they would look different – the British start-up Packamama is sure of that. In an interview with K-MAG, Amelia Dales talks about the advantages of plastic, the extent to which the flat wine bottle saves CO2 and why this is particularly exciting for the wine industry.


Eurostars project for fibre-based packaging concluded

Research situation
As part of the Eurostars funding programme, PulPac in Sweden and the Bio-Lutions start-up in Germany have together developed a prototype for a new dry-moulded-fibre machine that’s able to process fibres from agricultural waste. The project saw them adapting standard components that are traditionally used to make plastic products.

Bio-based packaging using food waste

Talk situation
The SAVE FOOD project together with BAU University is set up as a student challenge on new bio-based packaging materials from food waste or food by-products. We spoke to project coordinator Zeynep Tacer Caba, Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences, Bahcesehir University.


Wireless automation

Manufacturing increasingly requires automated solutions that intelligently network components within plants. Rotzinger is therefore now using CoreTigo's wireless IO-link technology in its new machine for packaging food. The technology is being employedfor wireless control of grippers on a rail system as they move through the plant performing tasks.
