FachPack: Focus on sustainability
and the circular economy
The circular economy was the main
subject at FachPack, held in Nuremberg,
Germany fromSeptember 25 to 27.
Many long-term substrate structures like
Paper/met-PET/PE or PP/ALU/PE have
come under evaluation due to upcoming
German and EU packaging directives.
Customers and visitors were looking for
sustainable solutions that tick all the
boxes on barrier and other properties but
require no major changes to conversion
and packaging equipment. Taghleef’s
EXTENDO® and NATIVIA® products are
ideal choices.
The EXTENDO range, particularly in OPP/
CPP laminates, offers a mono-material
structure to the market with aroma-,
gas-, vapor-, and mineral oil barriers
plus all the desired sealing properties.
The bio-based NATIVIA portfolio offers
an exceptional carbon footprint and
upcycling opportunities while also
providing a very good mineral oil barrier.
With a partner from Interseroh waste
management systems present at the
Taghleef booth, visitors were able to
learn of packaging solutions and post-
consumer recycling at one location.
