Airnov Healthcare Packaging, in controlled atmosphere packaging, will be showcasing a series of new sustainable solutions at the upcoming Pharmapack trade show in Paris.

Sustainability is engrained into Airnov’s DNA, with all activities and product launches geared towards our EcoVadis-aligned sustainability program.

Held on 18-19 May, Pharmapack is a key event in Airnov’s European diary, with attendees from across the industry meeting to catch up with their current contacts, meet new potential partners, source the latest innovations, and learn about the newest trends and opportunities in the packaging sector.

For example, in Q3 this year, Airnov will be launching 2g and 3g sizes of its popular laser-marked canister to round out the product line. These canisters, which require fewer raw materials to make, use laser technology to create visible marks on the canister body without the use of inks, varnishes, adhesives, and other extraneous materials for a more sustainable product with less risk of contamination.

Nicolas Martinez, Global Product manager at Airnov, said, “We are excited to offer a full range of sizes across our laser-marked product line. This will provide customers the opportunity to boost their sustainability credentials, as these solutions cut down on inks, materials and waste.”

Airnov will also be showcasing its new Light 27mm desiccant stopper at Pharmapack. Fitted with tamper evidence security and easy-open features, this solution uses fewer raw materials and is made with a new sustainable polymer, helping customers to reduce their carbon footprints.

Meanwhile, another sustainable innovation has been launched in the company’s Dricard range. The new product provides twice the capacity in the same size card. It uses less plastic and is printed with high-contrast blue ink on a white background. It requires 80% less ink to produce than the current orange Dricard.

Stéphane Rault, Global Product manager at Airnov, added, “All of these sustainable products enhancements are helping us to improve our EcoVadis sustainability assessment, which has become a vital metric for us in terms of planning our sustainable priorities. We look forward to speaking with visitors at Pharmapack about these products and our other sustainability initiatives that are shaping our future.”

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 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.
