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. To take the first step towards circularity, download this document.

The Versalis Revive PS Air F-Series Forever tray is made from 75% domestic post-consumer polystyrene (PS) content developed by Pro Food members companies.

The product is the result of the company’s existing partnership with Italian post-consumer products recycling company Forever Plast, as well as a collaborative project with other companies involved in the PS industry value chain.

The tray’s inner layer consists of Versalis Revive PS Air F-Series Forever, while its two outer layers are made from virgin PS.

The product’s A-B-A functional barrier design and testing were carried out in partnership with the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging (IVV), a Germany-based packaging company.

The packaging is suitable for meat and fish and will be added to the market in the coming weeks.

Versalis ’ Revive range features products made from mechanical recycling of post-consumer and plastics, as well as from the industry supply chain.

Other polymer-based products in the range include Revive EPS, made from expandable polystyrene, and Revive PE, made from polyethylene.

Last February, Versalis launched Hoop, a chemical recycling project for mixed plastics.

The project, developed in collaboration with Italian engineering company Servizi di Ricerche e Sviluppo (SRS), aims to develop a new chemical recycling technology for plastic waste.
