Paper-based packaging -
the lifecycle story.

Packaging and the converting industry are in constant evolution towards enhanced performance/cost ratio, new functionalities, light weighting and sustainability.

Responsible sourcing of pulp for paper-based packaging is increasingly about the impact of its entire lifecycle.  This means looking at materials, the environmental footprint, community impact, its uses, and recyclability - and how companies focus their efforts to effect significant change for the better.

Come hear about:

  • The new realities of responsible sourcing
  • The challenges and future impacts faced by companies.
  • Sustainability issues
  • The myths about Asian sourcing
  • A brief overview of the challenges, efforts and developments in producing paper, cellulosic biomaterials and green packaging products
  • Case studies illustrating analyses to predict the end-use performance
  • Paper based flexible packaging market, challenges, cost vs. performance and barrier properties
  • What happens when your empty pizza box leaves the end of your driveway?
  • How is recycled liner made?
  • What’s it like having an urban fibre source vs. using renewable wood fibres?
