Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress. To take the first step towards circularity, download this document.

The Scandinavian firm specialises in paper-based containers for drinks, food, frozen foods, ice cream, liquids and microwavable snacks. The products, which are designed to resist temperatures ranging from 0°C to 200°C, suit fast food and barbeque, and home freezing and reheating.

AR Packaging used an industrial cup-forming technology and designed the product with a particular focus on sealing consistency, efficiency and barrier performance, while maintaining the cup’s repulping properties.

AR Packaging said in a statement: “Together with our barrier experts, we now transfer this know-how into our food, food service and beverage segments to individually adjust the barrier performance to specific product demands.”

Alongside the new repulpable paper cups, the company also recently launched Boardio Eco, an eco-optimised carton packaging system that protects demanding products for customers.

This product eliminates the need for and inner bag for consumer convenience; it also has a reclosable opening that facilitates the package’s easy-to-scoop and pour functions.

According to AR Packaging, Boardio is particularly suitable for protecting sensitive food that can be branded with a green image, such as powders.

Boardio can also protect a product’s content from microleakage; its inner membrane comes in two forms, BoardLid (oxygen barrier) and Push-n-Pull (moisture barrier).
