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.

Claimed to be the first 100% biodegradable foam, 100BIO features sturdy, cold-resistant, heat-insulating, and shock-absorbing qualities.

A collection of 16 items, such as cups, clamshells and sushi trays, have been included in the new range.

"Everyone should be able to afford safe and eco-friendly food packaging, and 100BIO will make it economically possible."

100BIO is made from Ingeo, which is a trademarked brand name for a range of polylactic acid (PLA) biopolymers owned by NatureWorks.

It is said to reduce carbon footprints and does not contain heavy metals, harsh chemicals or carcinogens.

Ingeo is a sugar-based, biodegradable bioplastic currently being sourced from plants, such as corn or sugarcane.

Tag Packaging president Jea So said: "Everyone should be able to afford safe and eco-friendly food packaging, and 100BIO will make it economically possible."

Established in 2014, Tag Packaging provides customised packaging solutions for the baking and lunch-packing sectors.
