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.

The company has introduced the Qube Pro, FlexRx One and FlexRx Reseal blister packs made using Bio-PET, a medically approved bioplastic from plant-based material developer good natured.

These packs are intended to help pharmacies reduce their environmental footprints.

Jones Medication Adherence senior vice-president Trevor Noye said: “We continue to focus on circular design principles for our products to bring more sustainable packaging to the marketplace – it’s our responsibility, and it’s important to our pharmacy customers and the patients under their care.

“Not only is our new packaging the first to use leading-edge Bio-PET, but it also uses foil-free backings to improve recyclability.”

The Qube Pro, FlexRx One and FlexRx Reseal solutions are designed to increase the efficiency and quality of sealing in both automated and manual filling environments.

According to Jones Healthcare Group, the products take half as much time to seal as other comparable solutions on the market.

They will be made available to pharmacies in the first quarter of next year.

good natured CEO Paul Antoniadis said: “We are impressed to see Jones taking the lead on sustainability in the pharmaceutical packaging industry and are honoured to be their partner to make that happen.

“Sustainable plant-based packaging alternatives are now economical options, while at the same time doing good by the planet and human health.”

Jones Healthcare Group focuses on providing ‘advanced’ packaging and medication dispensing solutions.

As well as specialised medication adherence and dispensing products, the company provides graphic and structural design, printing, conversion and filling services for several packaging components, including folding cartons, labels, blisters, pouches and convenience vials.
