WEBINAR “Recyclability and Sustainability of Paper & Cardboard Packaging”
Join us on 8 June for an exciting webinar on advances in sustainability and recyclability in the paper & cardboard packaging industry. During this online event, we will discuss several key topics that will shape the future of our sector.
First speakers are Jean-Michel Thomassin and Louis Latin from Celabor.
Jean Michel and Louis will first highlight the activities of Celabor, a renowned organization dedicated to researching and developing innovative solutions for a more environmentally friendly industry.
Next, you will learn about the various workstreams of 4evergreen, a collaborative initiative aimed at promoting the recyclability of paper packaging, including essential guidelines for environmentally friendly packaging design. Learn how these guidelines can help improve the recyclability of your products.
A crucial aspect of the discussion will focus on the need for a paradigm shift in recyclability assessment. We will examine concrete examples of problematic materials such as wet strength paper, double coated paper, and paper with adhesive coatings. You will understand why these materials pose challenges for recycling and we will explore innovative solutions.
Finally, Celabor will present a harmonized protocol for evaluating the recyclability of paper packaging, through a clear and transparent framework for the industry.
Second part of the webinar will be presented by Maarten Delanghe from Fost Plus. Maarten will address key topics related to the collection, sorting, and recycling of paper and cardboard waste in Belgium, as well as the challenges we face for the future.
Introduction and conclusion will be given by Filip Vangeel, Manager Sustainability at Valipac.
