Recyclage : Storopack dévoile les premiers prototypes de packaging en polystyrène expansé chimiquement recyclé - Agro Media. Un calage en cellulose pour Greenweez. Nestlé Waters pousse le rPET. Hi-Cone intègre du PEbd recyclé. Hi-Cone se devait de réagir.
Le spécialiste des systèmes d’anneaux en plastique pour les packs de canettes ou de bouteilles voit depuis quelques mois ses clients traditionnels renoncer à ses solutions au profit de dispositifs le plus souvent en carton. HP investit 200 millions de dollars dans les encres. HP, que l’on connaît pour ses ordinateurs, ses imprimantes de bureau et ses solutions informatiques, est également un poids lourd de l’impression numérique d’emballages avec sa division de solutions graphiques.
Le groupe américain investit 200 millions de dollars sur cinq ans afin d’améliorer les encres à base aqueuse pour l’impression de carton ondulé et de textiles. Pour mémoire, la société intervient sur le segment du carton ondulé avec plusieurs machines jet d’encre de sa filiale Scitex, implantée en Israël. Le groupe veut donner une réponse aux problèmes de pollution des eaux, plus particulièrement causés par la coloration des textiles. « L’investissement dans des solutions aqueuses répondant aux besoins du marché et aux exigences croissantes en matière de durabilité des clients graphiques devrait propulser la croissance des activités de HP », a déclaré Santi Morera, directeur général et responsable mondial de la division solutions graphiques.
CMD exhibited new bagmaking technology at K2019 - Packaging Europe. At K2019, CMD demonstrated its world-class converting technology for drawtape-style trash bags on easy-to-dispense rolls.
“This year’s exhibit offered a new opportunity for our customers to expand their product portfolio and market share, while enhancing their sustainability value,” said Tim Lewis, Vice-President of Global Sales and Service. Visitors were able to inspect samples of a new, high-value bag product and discuss the system with technical experts and international agents. Oxea presents new solvent for more efficient printing - Packaging Europe. Propyls from Oxea, n‑propanol, n-propyl acetate or mixtures thereof, are a direct 1:1 substitute for conventional ethanol and ethyl acetate blends (Ethyls).
The economic advantages of Propyls in flexography and rotogravure printing can be described as follows: Consumption savings of 20 per cent in ink on average and 30 per cent in solvents on average without any changes to the printing infrastructure, and on the technical side, better printing quality, more efficient printing runs, higher printing speeds, and a more stable and sustainable printing process overall can be achieved.
“Very often, printers are not aware that they can optimize and troubleshoot their printing processes with little effort when they leave the solvent out of the equation. For want of alternatives, in the past, their use of traditional solvents was rarely questioned, when in fact Propyls can remedy many problems and contribute to higher process stability. BBC CELLPACK reveals CELLRoll Lidding, a new 100% recyclable film - Packaging Europe. BBC CELLPACK has announced CELLRoll Lidding, a complexed 100% recyclable film, which has just been added to the family of green products already comprised of CELLPouch and CELLWax.
The new product has unique characteristics: designed to be adaptable to current packaging machines and polypropylene or mono A-PET trays. Developed for all types of delicatessen items and hard cheeses, the company argues that it provides optimum product protection against oxidation and dampness, thereby extending use-by dates. CELLRoll has also been designed to be compatible with organic and vegan products. According to BBC CELLPACK, the advantages of this new development include recyclability, high barrier properties, adaptation to polypropylene or mono A-PET tray, and ease of use. As with the rest of the BBC CELLPACK Packaging range, CELLRoll Lidding is produced via a sustainable development process.
“Our challenge? “Our challenge? Coveris develops 100% recycled, recyclable shrink film range - Packaging Europe. Coveris’ new Duralite™ R range offers a shrink film solution that is reportedly both 100% recyclable and contains up to 50% postconsumer recyclate (PCR), plus an optional pre-consumer top-up material.
As part of its ongoing sustainable journey to deliver recyclable flexible packaging solutions, Coveris’ new Duralite™ R shrink film seeks to provide a fully circular solution to meet both the environmental and legislative demands of the future. Suitable for all secondary applications including multi-wrap cans and bottles, the new low-gauge, high-strength, high-clarity film is born out of Coveris’ market-leading Duralite™ shrink brand which the company says is used by all leading global brands in the beverage and grocery sector. Currently extruded and printed across Coveris’ European site base, its Kufstein facility in Austria is also adding sustainable credentials to the packs by using 100% renewable and CO2-neutral energy sources to power its manufacturing processes. A new study from Pro Carton on the CO2 footprint of carton packaging - Packaging Europe.
This publication has consistently argued that more LCA/carbon footprint data is required to fully understand the climate implications of certain sustainability trends within the packaging industry.
In light of this, a recent study carried out by the Research Institute of Sweden (RISE) in partnership with Pro Carton, the European Association of Carton and Cartonboard Manufacturers, has reported that 326kgCO2e is emitted per tonne of converted cartons manufactured by the carton packaging industry in Europe. RISE reportedly used a carbon footprint methodology that considers all emissions and removals associated with forest-based products, including aspects unique to the forest industry’s value chain. The partnership argues that their study’s methodology is significantly different and broader than any previously used and is in-line with the latest CEPI and CITPA guidelines.
The new figure cannot, therefore, be directly compared to previous studies.
