Consumers Drive Sustainable Packaging
TLMI Addresses Climate Change
For the first time in the association’s history, TLMI has released Position Statements encompassing the areas of Sustainable Consumption and Pro- duction, and Climate Change. Follow- ing the board of directors meeting earlier this year, an official structure and process was put in place to cre- ate and adopt Position Statements on topics the association believes are important to its members. Making A Statement According to the board-approved process, positions adopted by TLMI and statements issued on behalf of the membership must be based on sound scientific knowledge and re- flect the interests of TLMI member- ship as a whole. The Sustainable Consumption and Production Position Statement sum- marizes that the association believes that industries, businesses, and con- sumers must move toward sustain- able patterns of consumption and production. The statement outlines
by Tom Egan, PMMI
T he public’s pulse on environmental issues — including the depletion of natural resources and increase in food waste — continues to drive demand for sustainable products, accord- ing to “Global Trends Impacting Packaging Machinery,” a 2018 report from PMMI,TheAssociation for Packaging and Processing
Technologies. As a result, the number of innovative foods that are sustainably sourced and packaged has grown. In addition, heightened corporate social responsibility, firmer regulations and heavier taxes related to the protection of the environment are driving investment in solutions that optimize the use of resources and minimize environmental distress, ac- cording to PMMI’s report. Sustainability is a mainstay today, and it is affecting the supply chain from crop to consumer. Companies today are utilizing their innovative arms to fuel ideas to combat the food waste epidemic and enact sustainable solutions. Consequently, new products are being derived from foods that would otherwise wind up discarded or relegated to scraps. Take for example, the cold-pressed juice Wtrmln Wtr, founded on the premise of creating juice out of watermelon deemed too unattractive for sale as produce.

The Flexible Packaging Association (FPA) has an- nounced that the 2020 Student Flexible Packaging De- sign Challenge, now in its 19th year, is now accepting entries. The Student Design Challenge honors flexible packaging solutions developed by students. The “challenge” for students is to develop a flexible package solution that addresses a packaging issue such as consumer convenience or the protection of food. The package should advance the use of flexible pack- aging; make an improvement over an existing flexible package; convert a non-flexible package into a flexi- ble package; or package a product that is not currently available in flexible packaging. Students are asked to submit a concept outline pri- or to sending in the flexible packaging prototype/ bench sample. The concept outline will be evaluated and when approved, students may then send in their prototype/bench sample. Students may work on the design in conjunction with their packaging schools. FPA members may be available as mentors to students advancing to the flexible packaging prototype/bench sample development round. The deadline to submit a concept outline is Septem- ber 27.The student or team of students who develops

The company addresses the growing synthetic paper market, estimated at $587 million in 2019 and projected to reach $873 million by 2024, which represents an annual growth of 8.3 percent. Entries Open For 2020 AWA Sleeve Label Awards Entries are now being accepted for the 2020 AWA International Sleeve Label Awards, the competition which, for the last five years, has annually document- ed the latest achievements that sleeve labeling has brought to today’s packaging industry.

Sustainable Packaging (Cont’d from Page 1)
This premise also is the genesis of several produce subscription delivery companies establishing roots across the United States to mitigate produce waste due to product that is aesthetically unfit for sale. While food upcycling may be the latest trend, the fact remains that certain food products are only as good their final packages, as the right materials and containers can significantly impact shelf life. Making Improvements There has been an ongoing push to improve sus- tainability across different packaging types, driven throughout the supply chain from consumers and re- tailers onward. This is true for various packaging for- mats, including the plastic used on bottle caps, PET bottles, recycled corrugated used in cartons and cas- es, and recycled HDPE or PET film. Sustainability ini- tiatives have advanced considerably, leading manufac- turers to reduce the package source material through downgauging, creating thinner and lighter packaging while reducing waste. Ultimately, companies must optimize the package to prevent spoilage and avoid adding to the food waste epidemic. Sustainability has a role to play not only as it per- tains to the food and primary package, but also in the secondary package and cartonboard it is shipped in. As the e-commerce market continues to grow, so does consumer concern about product waste. Brands must use the proper package size for delivery to avoid the perception of being wasteful and unsustainable in the eyes of the targeted end-user. Making Space In the packaging space, strides are being made toward improving materials, but also packaging machinery. As companies increasingly take steps toward sus- tainability, the demand for more energy-efficient ma- chines rises, and companies begin to look to more innovative solutions to meet demand, reduce their footprints and more. Food industry professionals can find the latest sustainability-enhancing packaging options at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2019, September 23–25, Las Vegas Convention Center), produced and owned by PMMI. Co-located with Healthcare Packaging EXPO, this event will bring together more than 30,000 attendees, including 5,000 international vis- itors from more than 125 countries and 2,000-plus exhibiting companies spanning nearly 900,000 net square feet of exhibit floor.

NA Flexo Printing Inks Market To Reach $3 Billion By 2024 The North American flexographic ink market is es- timated to exceed $3 billion by 2024, according to a new report from Graphical Research. Increasing demand for flexographic printing inks in cosmetic packaging has been driving the market. Rising usage of cosmetic products among the self-con- scious population is propelling the packaging industry.
For instance, U.S. cosmetic export in 2015 was more than $2 billion in Asia Pacific countries such as Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, Vietnam,Thailand and the Philippines. U.S. cosmetic exports to China in 2015 was more than $500 million; further export had increased as much as 62 percent in recent years among high po- tential markets such as Indonesia, China and Vietnam. Growing U.S. cosmetic export increases the usage of packaging materials accelerating the flexographic printing inks application in the cosmetic industry.

Nilpeter India Installs Register Measuring System The Indian subsidiary of Nilpeter, headquartered in Chennai, is the country’s first customer of Luchs IV register measuring system from PITSID. The print service manager of Nilpeter India received training for operating the Luchs IV register measuring system at the offices of PITSID in Leipzig, Germany. The LUCHS IV system is reportedly an advanced quality control system that gives a statistical calcula- tion of the color register on the printed web, which enables Nilpeter India to qualify its presses for highest quality compliance. Rigid Plastic Packaging Poised For Growth Rigid plastic packaging sales will grow from a pro- jected $181.1 billion in 2019 at an annual rate of 4.2 percent to reach $222.4 billion in 2024, according to a new report from Smithers Pira. The report identifies the following key drivers and trends for the rigid plastic packaging industry:Lifestyle and social influences; cost and availability of materials; rigid plastics replace traditional packaging materials; rigid plastic packaging challenged by flexibles; sustain- able packaging; consumer concern about food waste and food safety; and regulatory developments for pack- aging and packaging waste. FTA Signs As Inaugural Clemson VR Training Sponsor The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) has signed on as the inaugural sponsor for Clemson Uni- versity’s new virtual print training platform devel- oped by the Sonoco Institute of Packaging Design and Graphics. The Sonoco Institute’s new virtual print platform fea- tures an immersive print lab where users can operate a press and utilize all of the tools and measurement de- vices found in a traditional pressroom.An initial phase of the platform was launched earlier this year at FTA’s INFOFLEX 2019 exhibition in New Orleans, Louisiana. In the past 10 years, the print industry has seen a 25 percent decrease in employment, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The initial phase is modeled after the Clemson’s own print lab and flexographic press, though the ultimate goal is to develop an all-encompassing print environ- ment for scalable training experiences and industry re- cruitment.This inaugural gift from FTA will allow the Sonoco Institute to begin development of phase two.

Collaborating for Breakthrough Innovation in the Packaging Design-to-Print Supply Chain This session will offer a glimpse into the minds of brands and their key packaging development stake- holders as they strive to differentiate their products. In this interactive panel, key Procter & Gamble stake- holders, from R&D-to-launch, will share their experi- ence as they collaborated to develop and commercial- ize a breakthrough technology in performance and sustainability for e-commerce and brick-and-mortar packaging. Following a detailed analysis of market prospects, BST eltromat International has decided to close parts of its BST ProControl business unit. Deliveries of new measuring systems and system upgrades from BST ProControl will cease at the end of 2019.The Service department will remain in place.A team of seven peo- ple will continue to serve the existing customers of BST ProControl around the world.This includes after sales support, help desk, service technician visits to customers and the delivery of spare parts and radia- tion sources. New Strategy The new “perfecting your performance” strategy of the elexis Group, of which BST eltromat is the big- gest subsidiary, is focusing more systematically than ever on benefits to the customer. The partial closure of BST ProControl is a part of this strategy.The same applies to the acquisition of the majority stake in Ny- quist Systems GmbH, Landsberg am Lech, Germany, which was concluded by elexis AG in early 2019. The TubeScan family of Nyquist Systems reported- ly complement BST eltromat’s product range in the areas of 100 percent inspection and web monitoring in the narrow web market. Both the partial closure of BST ProControl and the majority stake in Nyquist Sys- tems represent a strengthening of the company’s core competencies, according to the manufacturer. BST eltromat founded BST ProControl GmbH as a 100 percent subsidiary through the acquisition of the companies betacontrol and Protagon in 2013. It was fully integrated into the processes of BST eltromat as an independent business unit in early 2017. BST Eltromat Restructures
