The plastic container
green challenge

A journey through markets, products and technologies to find answers that match sustainability with opportunities

27 July (Live)

Following the series of webinars on caps and preforms, it’s time to focus on containers. Not only because they’re booming, for obvious reasons, in the pharma and home&personal care sectors, but also because of the contribution they might provide from a 3Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle) perspective when it comes to lessening the environmental impact of plastic packaging.

We’ll start off by looking at market context, analysis and trends, then shift the focus to technology, container requirements and manufacturing processes in order to assess how brand owners’ sustainability commitments can be met.

Next, our partners will present the outstanding results we’ve achieved on the ‘green challenge’ front by working as a team on shared goals.

They represent the entire supply chain, from raw material producers (DOW) to additive producers (Milliken) and converters (Alltrista).

Lastly, we’ll take a closer look at a further SACMI challenge that could also have a major impact on circularity: compression technology applied to PET containers.
