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.

Shopfloor-Online is an MES designed to improve manufacturing performance and “create a single and unbroken thread of critical data across all manufacturing operations” according to Lighthouse Systems . It will enable Trivium’s US-based plant in Roanoke, Virginia to eliminate paper and the use of excel.

According to a statement released by Lighthouse Systems , other benefits include the ability to have one place for all quality-related data, dashboards on the shop floor to increase visibility, and downtime data integrated with quality for better overall analysis.

The MES is available in 50 countries and 15 languages. It serves the packaging industry as well as food and beverage, automotive, aerospace, building and construction, pharma, and energy industries.
