In a recent paperboard industry survey, 90% of the respondents revealed that a product can only considered “sustainable” if it is made from renewable materials, is recyclable and has low carbon footprint.
While food contact and safety of paper and board packaging is key priority for paperboard and fiber-based value chain, ensuring sustainability, functionality (sealability and etc) and recyclability of the barrier coatings on paper/fiber packaging is just as important, and is set to disrupt the entire value chain for the next few years.
Circular economy of packaging aims for full recyclability of materials disposed, and especially the ease of existing paper waste recycling stream is another key requirement. Not to mention on other high functionality requirements such as shelf life extension to reduce food wastage.
Join us and our expert speakers at CMT's Advanced Biobased & Recyclable Barrier Paper Packaging for Food Contact, at 14:30 CET on 9th November 2021. The panel will walk you through this evolution, as the paperboard and barrier coatings industry work together to ensure functionality, safety and sustainability from biobased barrier paper packaging for takeaways, fast food, snacks and our daily cuppa.
