    Panel: Packaging

    Daniel Clusky will explore the topic Reinventing 60 Years of Flexible Food Packaging. In 5 years. The presentation will focus on business opportunities related to the fact that 20% of the world’s packaging is controlled by CPGs who have committed to use recyclable, reusable, or compostable packaging by 2025. It will focus on gaps in the industry where customer needs for toughness, barrier, and speed are not filled with recyclable mono-material packaging. Companies that lean into the technology gaps in mono-material packaging will be set up for success as 2025 approaches.

    Todd Becker will speak firsthand about the realities of global efforts to eliminate plastic waste in our oceans and the natural environment. In this engaging session, Todd Becker will share his experience visiting the beautiful fishing village of Muncar, Project STOP’s first partner city, located in the East Java province of Indonesia. One of his key insights is that plastic pollution in developing countries is a waste management issue, and flexibles are a key component. Real innovation is needed to create robust and economical waste management systems that incorporate the recycling of flexibles.

    Sustainability

     Using its model for creating New End Market Opportunities (NEMO), the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) continues to advance a research effort to explore using post-consumer recycled PE films as polymer additives in asphalt binder. In conjunction with the National Center for Asphalt Technology (NCAT), the team has developed a formulation using the recycled PE that is comparable in most performance areas to that of traditional, virgin polymers used in asphalt today.
