Webinar Series on Sustainable Packaging Solutions

Your journey to sustainable packaging starts here

You’re the packaging designer, materials specialist, or food and non-food manufacturer. We‘re the packaging technology experts. Together, we can make the transition to sustainable packaging happen.

Sign up for our webinars, to learn about latest trends in sustainable packaging materials and which steps are needed, to make your packaging more environmentally friendly.
 

  • Packaging technology – looking beyond sustainable packaging materials

    Plastics are part of nearly every product that we interact with in our daily lives. Manufacturers favor this material because it is durable and can be molded into any form. Nevertheless, plastic has a damaging effect on the environment and many manufactures feel consciously drawn to consider alternative materials to safeguard the planet’s health.

    For over 50 years, Syntegon has carried the torch of innovation on different packaging materials, pack styles, and technology developments that support all of our customer’s needs.

    Let’s take a look beyond just the material when it comes to a substitution (e.g. plastic trays via smart paper applications). How are these trays erected and held together? Is glue a sustainable alternative?

    Total cost of ownership, energy consumption, and life cycle of the equipment all play a part in the decision of a sustainable future.

    Goal of the webinar

    Consumers want to see products in plastic free and recyclable alternatives. Syntegon will demonstrate how we can support you to meet consumer needs with our packaging technology developments to achieve a more sustainable future.

    Target group

    All personnel involved in the company’s sustainability processes, sustainability managers, as well as product and packaging managers.

  • Right-size your packaging with a step-by-step approach

    Historically, product packaging could not be big enough for consumer demand. However, the tides have changed with an increased understanding around portion size. More and more consumers demand appropriate sized packaging for the products they buy; especially since the sustainability aspect has become increasingly important to the consumer purchasing and brand loyalty decision. Furthermore, shelf space at retailers is a hot commodity and valuably limited.

    Let us show you our approach to the challenges of right-sizing your packaging. We will explain the necessary steps to fulfill your customers’ demands, while being more sustainability-conscious and getting the edge on desirable cost-savings.

    Goal of the webinar

    You will learn how to identify possibilities to “right-size” your packaging, making it more sustainable, and save money as well. We will demonstrate some examples of how we have handled these challenges with numerous customers.

    Target group

    All personnel involved in the company’s sustainability processes, sustainability managers, as well as product and packaging managers.

  • Consumer motivations drive change – Fully recyclable solutions for the demanding dairy industry

    A wide variety of compound materials are used to protect sensitive dairy products, which makes recycling a difficult task. In order to change this and serve the market’s needs and motivation for sustainable packaging, innovative technologies have been developed.

  • Packaging design for recycling in primary and secondary packaging

    Additional to choosing the right materials, innovative package design can enhance recyclability and make packages best suited for a circular economy while eliminating wastefulness.

    Learn how to close the loop on the “take, make, dispose” practice with separable materials for sensitive products in primary packaging, as well as the elimination of glue and polymers in secondary packaging. The next level of improved pack styles is here and we want to share our experiences with you.

    Goal of the webinar

    Learn about paper-laminates where the layers can be easily separated and explore solutions for corrugated cardboard trays that are created by ultrasonic sealing, which eliminates the use for adhesives and polymers.

  • Sustainable alternatives to substitute conventional barrier packaging material

    Conventional packaging materials often come with high barrier functions that allow for extended shelf life, but offer limited potential to make them more sustainable. However, sustainable materials need to be designed specifically to provide safeguarding barriers and protect product quality.

    Knowing the specific barrier product requirements of your product allows you to make the right decision when selecting the optimum sustainable packaging material.

    Goal of the webinar

    In this webinar we want to look deeper into the protective functions and the barrier requirements of different food and non-food products. Which sustainable alternatives can substitute conventional materials?

    Target group

    All personnel involved in the company’s sustainability processes, especially in the field of packaging performance and product protection.
