This is what FachPack 2019 has to offer.

Key theme "Enviromentally friendly packaging"

Key theme "Enviromentally friendly packaging"

There is one theme in particular that is currently of greater relevance to the industry than any other and is therefore the key theme of FachPack 2019: "Environmentally friendly packaging". It can be found at the stands of numerous exhibitors, but also in the forums, at special shows and award ceremonies.

The four criteria of the key theme of FachPack 2019:

Recycled packaging

The recycling targets for packaging set by the EU require new approaches from producers and the recycling industry. By 2025, 55% of all municipal waste must be recycled. For this reason, numerous research projects are working in particular on whether plastic waste can be reused or reused as packaging. What applications are recyclates suitable for and what solutions do companies have up their sleeve to improve the recycling of packaging?

Resource-conserving materials

How can sustainability and packaging be optimally combined? For paper manufacturers the solution lies in paper-based packaging with a barrier effect. They score points with renewable raw materials. Plastics manufacturers or suppliers of aluminium packaging point to the massive material savings (i.e. less material input with increasing functionality) and the increasing recyclability of their materials. What does the market have to offer?

Reusable packaging and systems

The German consumer is familiar with reusable packaging, especially from the drinks department - glass and PET bottles are used several times and thus conserve resources. However, reusable packaging can also fully exploit its advantages in (retail) logistics: They can be optimally integrated into a recycling concept, are usually of a higher quality than disposable packaging and thus protect the products better. They also ensure that less packaging waste is generated during the lifetime of the individual products. The reusable packaging can be made of different materials.

(New) environmentally friendly processes

Environmentally friendly processes are part of a sustainable corporate strategy that is now firmly anchored in many companies. Possible measures include improving the energy efficiency of machines and systems, reducing waste and the use of materials (e.g. thinner films) or using materials that do not pollute the environment.
