Cutting edge developments and ongoing research highlighted

The Packaging Society is offering industry professionals and students the opportunity to learn more about current cutting edge developments and ongoing research into packaging made from natural renewable resources at a forthcoming event.

The mini conference being staged at the IOM3 Headquarters, Euston Rd, London on May 30th, entitled Cartonboard and Cellulose Film – New Technologies for Natural Packaging Solutions is aimed at packaging specifiers, packaging technologists, packaging producers and retailers, especially in the food and beverage sectors.

It is also intended for IOM3 Post graduate and undergraduate Packaging Diploma students as part of their ongoing professional development and will count towards their CPD.It will focus on materials such as barrier treated cartonboards, cellulose films and moulded pulp products. The economics of these products has been tough, competing against alternative laminates. However, new technologies emerging have made them more competitive and attractive to the packaging markets for food and ‘to go’ beverages.Issues covered will include applications, performance and suitability for recycling, composting and sustainability.
There is already a surge in interest in these materials for packaging applications and anyone involved with packaging development at the sharp end will find the event of interest.

This event is the first one of a series. The second one will be about corrugated case materials, later this year.
