It's all about packaging

When should you start your own production?


Should you build your own production line or outsource the process? This blog post discusses the factors companies should consider before deciding. From the type of product to the complexity of production, here's why building your own production line may be the better choice in the long run.


Design principles in flexible packaging to advance the circular economy


Flexible packaging plays an important role in protecting food and other products, preventing food waste and minimising resource consumption. This blog post presents design principles for flexible packaging that support the circular economy, as well as the selection of materials that are critical for packaging sortability and recyclability. The aim is to develop an efficient packaging material strategy that minimises resource consumption and enables a sustainable future.


Packaging in the pharmaceutical industry


The pharmaceutical industry must meet high standards for its packaging to ensure product protection, accuracy and safety. However, companies also need to consider sustainability. The paper discusses the various aspects of sustainability relevant to the pharmaceutical industry and presents the introduction of blister packaging made from monomaterials as an environmentally friendly alternative. This packaging is not only environmentally friendly, but also transparent and has excellent barriers to ensure the quality of the products.


What is the impact of plastic on the environment?


The world consumes millions of tonnes of plastics every year, but this has harmful effects on the environment. The use of plastics has led to marine pollution, road pollution and the release of microplastics, which has negative impacts on human and animal health. This article explores how plastics affect the environment and what alternative materials are available.


Sustainable packaging options and their properties


Which packaging is really environmentally friendly? This blog post gives an overview of different types of packaging and their advantages and disadvantages. Whether composite film, paper packaging with a plastic layer or bio-based plastic - each option has its own advantages and disadvantages. The post shows what to look for in order to choose the most sustainable packaging for your product.


The packaging law


The Packaging Act in Germany is an important instrument for increasing the recyclability and recycling rate of packaging and for reducing the amount of waste. Since 01.01.2022, manufacturers of shipping packaging, sales packaging, secondary packaging and reusable packaging must also be registered. The plastic bag ban was extended and the single-use deposit obligations were expanded. Compliance with the take-back and recovery obligations must now be documented in an auditable form.


Plastic packaging in conjunction with a closed Cycle

Plastic packaging

The blog post deals with plastic packaging and its role in the circular economy. It explains what requirements are placed on packaging and what problems can arise during implementation. It also discusses which materials and designs make sense and how the collection and sorting of packaging waste can be improved. Chemical recycling and bio-based plastics are also discussed as possible solutions. There is no one best packaging solution, but different strategies can help to reduce the environmental footprint of packaging.


Monomaterials and their contribution to the circular economy

Monomaterials in the focus

"PE and PP bags: the future of packaging" explains the importance of monomaterial packaging solutions to tackle the plastic waste problem. This blog post discusses how monomaterial packaging, made of only one type of plastic, can be easily recycled and reused. The article also explains the role of monomaterial packaging in a circular economy, highlighting the importance of recycling and reusing valuable resources.


The conservative packaging world and its sustainable future


The world of packaging has evolved beyond just protecting products. Sustainability is now a key factor, but not all packaging labeled as "eco-friendly" or "natural" actually deliver. Recycling is critical, but unfortunately, sorting technology remains a significant hurdle. Designing packaging that supports sorting quality through "Design for Recycling" principles is critical. In this blog post, we delve into the world of sustainable packaging, exploring recycling, reduction, reuse, and the future of packaging in a sustainable world.


Plastics and their recycling properties


This blog post highlights the importance of recycling plastics and their types that can be recycled. Sorting, cleaning, and melting them require little energy, and they can be recycled many times without losing their properties. However, plastics should be separated according to their types, which requires proper washing and sorting, and they cannot be mixed with each other. Governments and companies should invest in recycling infrastructure and educate people on proper waste management. Although recycled plastics are still more expensive than new ones, customers must learn to choose recycled packaging over new plastics. To improve recyclability, packaging must be designed for easy separation and recycling.
