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.

WBF 6101 is designed to extend DataLase Case Coding solution capability and allow laser coding and marking of both white and natural kraft corrugate boxes.

The new solution is claimed to be a suitable alternative for high-resolution inkjet, waxjet and print and apply labels while eliminating waste and single-use plastics from the supply chain.

It also supports companies to apply variable information such as shipping information, GS1 Barcodes, batch/date codes and check-weigh information on to corrugated boxes.

DataLase chief sales and marketing officer Mark Naples said: “We estimate that for every one million typical shipping labels used (100mm x 150mm or 4in x 6in), nearly 300km of unnecessary backing waste is produced.

“The DataLase Case Coding solution creates significant operational savings for manufacturers.”

“If we apply this to a typical production environment, it equates to thousands of kilometres of backing and thermal ribbon waste being sent straight to an incinerator every year.

“The DataLase Case Coding solution creates significant operational savings for manufacturers, as well as contributing to brands packaging sustainability agendas.”

The company noted that its Case Coding removes single-use plastics from the production environment, inks and solvents (VOCs) from the fulfilment area, offers robust coding to avoid unnecessary waste, high coding throughput and operational reliability.

The new coating solution will also reduce the need for product recalls and penalties from retailers for rework by creating high-contrast and durable codes.
