Matho
Waste management system from 'Matho' Germany installed at Renault.

Recognizing the imperative need to manage self-adhesive label waste more effectively, Palghar based Renault Paper Products, led by Mahendra Shah, has installed a waste management system supplied by Matho Konstruktion and Maschinenbau GmbH, Germany. Renault, established in 1999 and operating out of 22000 square feet shopfloor with nine label presses, have steadily expanded by adding label embellishing capabilities to become a specialized supplier to the liquor industry besides having a host of customers from the leading FMCG brand owners. They have a range of high-end flexo and hybrid presses. They are the first to have a combination label press that can produce labels with diverse technologies like offset, flexo, screen printing in a single pass along with capabilities to foil and emboss. On installation of Matho, Mahendra comments, “In today’s time, a clean shop floor makes the workplace more productive, and space-saving does provide additional area for expansion”.

Leading label producing companies understand and try to implement a cleaner and green workplace. Environmentally and socially responsible manufacturers of self-adhesive label material or converters of labels do not wish to dump their production waste as garbage in open or covered spaces. Label waste matrix stripped off after die-cutting has tacky adhesive and is voluminous. It attracts dust and bacteria, so it is a health hazard and also occupies expensive space that can be used for productive purposes. German manufacturers Matho offers waste management systems to extract the trims and matrix by suction from the slitting machine or die-cutting station to transport the leading equipment to shred the self-adhesive waste without letting it stick to the sides and clogging the pipes and further blow it on to either collection bags in highly reduced space or compact it for easy disposal.Matho

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
