Consumers and companies are putting more emphasis on environment-friendly packaging. At Constantia Flexibles, sustainability is said to have been a key guiding principle for a long time – with continuous investments in research and development, the packaging company is constantly launching new, sustainable product lines. At FachPack 2022 from 27-29 September in Nuremberg, Constantia Flexibles will present its new packaging innovations as well as long-established product lines.

Rising material prices and bottlenecks, as well as increasing expectations regarding sustainability, result in major challenges for producers and packaging manufacturers. Intensive research and development are therefore more important than ever. “Our investments in research and development are focused on producing packaging in line with circular economy principles. This way, we guarantee not only customized but also recyclable packaging solutions, thus helping our customers to bring more sustainable products and innovations to market,” explains Pim Vervaat, chief executive officer of Constantia Flexibles. “We are particularly proud of our new sustainable innovations, such as the CompresSeal Solution or Perpetua Alta from the pharma division, with which we are promoting a more sustainable tomorrow,” says Vervaat.

EcoPressoLid – the compostable capsule sleeve

Constantia Flexibles‘ EcoPressoLid capsule liner enables more sustainable coffee consumption – it is compostable, biobased, and perfect for sealing the top and bottom of compostable coffee capsules. The EN13432 certified material was awarded OK Compost Industrial by TÜV Austria in 2022. Especially its high oxygen barrier and good performance during the brewing process make it a sustainable and high-performing packaging solution.

CompresSeal – Lighter packaging promoting sustainability

Together with the Dutch film manufacturer Plasthill B V, Constantia Flexibles developed the CompresSeal technology, based on a new type of micro embossing technology. The innovative embossing pattern allows the base weight of polyolefinic sealing films to be reduced by up to 30%, while keeping the packaging thickness. This significantly reduces the CO2 footprint of packaging and raw materials consumption.

Perpetua Alta – Recyclable solution with high chemical resistance

The pharma division at Constantia Flexibles also researched and developed at full steam and launched a brand-new innovation this year. The polypropylene (PP)-based, recyclable mono-material solution Perpetua Alta features high chemical resistance to pharmaceutical products. Its unique selling point is the combination of sustainability and resistance, but also its lower weight and higher efficiency. Compared to conventional laminates, it combines these properties with optimum protection against oxygen, water vapor, and light.

In addition to these product innovations, Constantia Flexibles will also be presenting its long-established product lines at the FachPack 2022, such as the more sustainable packaging line Ecolutions. Consisting of the recyclable product families EcoLam (mono PE laminate), EcoVer (mono PP laminate), EcoPaper (paper solutions), and EcoPeelCover (aluminum-based closure solution), the product line reduces the environmental impact while maintaining packaging performance.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
