Innovia Films is focused on creating new flexible BOPP films that help reduce the carbon footprint of packaging, deliver technical performance, simplify structures and maintain full recyclability. At Packaging Innovation, Innovia will present examples of its solutions for:
- Reduce the consumption of fossil resources
- Enable on packaging recycling labels
- Extend shelf life – reduce food waste
- Simplify the package structure
- Facilitates material exchange
- It contains recycled post-consumer waste
- Maintain compliance with food contact
Stephen Langstaff, Business Development Manager, Packaging at Innovia Films, said: “Last year’s COP26 summit reminded us of the importance of reducing our carbon footprint. Food production is a major contributor to global warming, and resource-efficient packaging plays an important role in reducing your carbon footprint by reducing waste and extending lifespan.
The carbon footprint of packaging is relatively small compared to its packaging products in general. This is one of the great advantages of flexible packaging. Thanks to its low weight, it is significantly more resource-efficient than cans, bottles, glasses or bowls”.
The misconception that flexible packaging cannot be recycled leads to some wrong environmental choices. Fortunately, the situation is changing. Visit Stand F82 in Hall 1 to discuss your current packaging challenges.
