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.

According to the company, PaperSeal trays offer a robust and consistent sealing surface that is equivalent in quality to plastic trays. The tray will be sealed hermetically, making it suitable for fresh-produce and frozen foods, and providing up to 28 days of shelf-life.

The trays are made of 80-90% paperboard and 10-20% film depending on the trays dimensions. The film liner is designed to be easily separated from the paperboard to enable easy recycling.

The paperboard is produced using sustainable forest-sourced fibre and aligns with GPI’s 2025 sustainability missions, which includes the aim to reduce low-density polyethylene (LDPE) use by 40%.

Graphic Packaging Europe business development director Paul Tye said: “The transition to fibre-based packaging is a priority for many of our customers, and it’s clear that sustainable paperboard packaging solutions must meet the functionality and performance of existing tray designs.”

GPI and G. Mondini also partnered with UK-based food processor Anglo Beef Processors (ABP) Food Group in order to make the processing and packaging more sustainable.
