Sustainability in the packaging sector is the most significant challenge across the globe. There are two things for sustainability – ‘intent’ and ‘technology’. If your company intends to become sustainable, you can work, and secondly, the technology – more upgrades to the technology are more advancements for the packaging sector.
In the last 40 years in the packaging industry, there has been a considerable amount of investment but fewer technological advancements. Plastic in packaging is making a significant issue. The packaging sector is continuously evolving to decrease the use of plastic in packaging.
Plastic packaging is highly impractical and negatively influences the earth’s ecosystem, which we all rely on. Most plastic garbage is transferred to landfills or disposed of into the environment due to poor product design and a lack of political infrastructure.
The packaging sector is one of the largest sectors of the Indian economy. After the pandemic, the packaging sector is booming. For this, 100% recycled plastic has now emerged in the market. The packaging is now becoming sustainable. After use, the plastic can be converted into granules and used again in the process.
