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 new products include sandwich wraps, bags for bakery, chip, sandwich and deli, and micro-flute clamshells.

Novolex brands Bagcraft and Burrows Packaging have produced the products.

Both Bagcraft and Burrows are providing the alternative stock versions that are non-fluorinated and grease-resistant for certain select products.

Some of Bagcraft products include Dubl Shield for insulated Sandwich Wrap, EcoCraft Paper Wrap & Liner, EcoCraft Sandwich Bag and more, Dubl View ToGo! Deli Bag, Tin Tie Bakery Bag with Window, and Tin Tie Chip Bag with Window.

Burrows Packaging products include its EcoCraft ToGo! Grease Resistant Clamshells in all sizes.

Novolex Innovation senior vice-president Adrianne Tipton said: “We work hard every day to provide innovative solutions for our customers, so we’re proud to introduce these new non-fluorinated, grease-resistant products.

“These products are excellent options for our customers seeking alternatives to conventional products. We’re excited to be able to offer them.”

According to Novolex, EcoCraft ToGo! Grease Resistant Clamshells, Dubl Shield Insulated Sandwich Wrap, EcoCraft Paper Wrap & Liner and EcoCraft Sandwich Bag meet American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards for compostability in commercial facilities.

In April this year, Novolex decided to temporarily repurpose its capabilities to produce protective gear for healthcare professionals fighting the spread of Covid-19, coronavirus.

The company is planning to manufacture up to 25,000 face shields and 100,000 medical isolation gowns each week.
