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.

Made using mono-material Polypropylene (PP), low-density polyethylene (PE) and paper, the blueloop solutions are suitable for coffee, snacks, dry food, personal care and other fast-moving consumer goods.

The company noted that the range also consists of paper-based solutions to replace plastic packaging.

Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging executive vice-president OIli Koponen said: “We are committed to offering recyclable solutions for all our flexible packaging product categories.

“Today, we have solutions available for several key categories and we will launch solutions for our most demanding applications soon.

“Huhtamaki blueloop builds on our strong global expertise and experience in flexible packaging manufacturing. We bring the solutions to market by working closely with our suppliers and customers.”

According to the company, blueloop solutions can be widely recycled.

“Collecting, sorting and reusing the recycled material are all part of the blueloop perspective.”

Huhtamaki currently has a network of 78 manufacturing units and an additional 24 sales-only offices in 34 countries. It employs approximately 17,700 people.

Huhtamaki Flexible Packaging sustainability and strategic innovation director Michael Hahl said: “For Huhtamaki, blueloop is more than a product range, it is a learning and development platform.

“We engage with the full supply chain from resin providers to our customers and recyclers. Our closest focus is on product design and manufacturing.

“However, collecting, sorting and reusing the recycled material are all part of the blueloop perspective.”

In February, the food packaging firm unveiled sustainable paper straws in an effort to provide customers with a more sustainable option when consuming cold drinks.
