Webinar Series on Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Your journey to sustainable packaging starts here

Have you already started on your journey towards a more sustainable packaging solution? Have you clarified your objectives and next steps yet?

Shifting to sustainable packaging can be very challenging – there is no easy solution.

The transition …

  • impacts on a large number of industry partners
  • is highly dynamic
  • involves making sense of complex regulations
  • is not straightforward – there are countless options

Register for our Webinar Series to find out how your company can achieve its goal of becoming more sustainable. We have structured our Webinar Series around a number of topics:

  • Paper or mono-material plastics: How sustainable are they?

    Pressure from the market to get sustainable packaging onto the shelf is high. However, finding an ideal solution for each product and package is not easy: Brand owners have to navigate a maze of regulations and consumer expectations. How do the different packaging materials fare in terms of sustainability? What should brand owners take into account when choosing between paper and plastics?

    The packaging materials differ in terms of their properties and pose a number of challenges to the production equipment. Mono-material plastics can be more temperature-sensitive than multilayer laminates; paper can be more difficult to fold than plastics. When switching to more sustainable packaging materials, which technological aspects need to be considered with regard to packaging processes?

    Objective

    You will understand the sustainability aspects of paper and plastic packaging materials for food products. You will learn which changes to make on your existing production lines when switching to paper or mono-material packaging.

    Target group

    Professionals interested in sustainable packaging, especially in the field of flexible packaging technology

  • Paper in food packaging: Bar packaging line by Syntegon

    Consumer awareness for more sustainable packaging is continuously rising. Sustainability is key for brands to meet consumers’ expectations.

    Paper is a prime example of how to achieve sustainable packaging. However, choosing the right paper material is not as easy as it may seem: A number of factors have to be considered, such as barrier requirements.

    Objective

    You will gain insight into paper packaging and its challenges in the food industry. You will discover the barrier properties of paper and will learn how it can be optimized for protection against grease, water and oxygen. You will learn how to transition from conventional to paper packaging with the aid of our customer case study on chocolate tablets.

    Target group

    Professionals involved in the journey to sustainability, sustainability managers as well as product and packaging managers in general, those working in the cookies and crackers, bars and chocolate industries in particular

    Agenda

    Date November 17, 2020

  • Traditional pack style redesigned: Substituting paper for plastic blisters

    Many products are predominantly packed in plastic blisters. Non-food products in particular are marketed in this pack style in drugstores or DIY shops. To date, the only sustainable alternatives are folding cartons, bags or pouches.

    Paper forming technology offers brand owners the chance to replace plastic with a sustainable alternative without having to change their pack style. Paper packaging materials can be used to form shapes of any kind – within the limits of the material’s properties. With regard to barriers and other laminates, there is also a wide range of options – even for the food and cosmetic industry.

    Objective

    You will learn how shaped paper solutions can be used as a substitute for plastic blisters. You will find out which shapes are possible, which additional features we offer and which applications the technology is suitable for. You will challenge your perception of paper packaging and will see what is already possible today in this field.

    Target group

    Professionals involved in the journey to sustainability, sustainability managers as well as product and packaging managers in general, those seeking to substitute paper for plastic blister applications or to switch to a new pack style in particular

    Agenda

  • Full flexibility: Paper in vertical bagging

    As a manufacturer of packaging machines, we have observed a rapidly increasing demand for paper-based packaging solutions. The advantages of paper are obvious – the material is made from renewable raw materials, is recyclable and biodegradable, and enjoys a very high level of consumer acceptance.

    However, in vertical bagging, some paper properties pose a challenge for certain bag styles and have to be optimized.

    Objective

    You will gain insight into the properties of paper – and how to improve them. You will also learn which machine-relevant properties affect the bag making process on a vertical bagger.

    Target group

    Professionals involved in the journey to sustainability, sustainability managers as well as product and packaging managers in general, those in vertical bagging in particular

  • Vertical baggers and polyolefin-based materials – a sustainable option

    Conventional flexible packaging materials are multilayer materials, consisting of various layers of different types of plastics and sometimes even aluminum or PVDC. Unfortunately, these advanced materials are difficult to recycle and many countries lack suitable recycling systems.

    Packaging waste is a concern for governments and citizens alike, resulting in changes in packaging waste regulations. Mono-material films were developed to address this problem and are increasingly used as a packaging material.

    Objective

    You will learn about the properties of mono-materials and how to improve them, as well as how to design them for a circular economy. You will also gain insight into the key machine parameters and operating windows for processing sustainable mono-materials.

    Target group

    Professionals involved in the journey to sustainability, sustainability managers as well as product and packaging managers in general, those in vertical bagging in particular

    Agenda

    Date February 9, 2021
    2:00 pm CET Welcome
