Toyo Printing Inks, a member of the Tokyo-based specialty chemicals manufacturer Toyo Ink Group, announced that its LP-9000 Toyo Life Premium Food LO/LM series of sheetfed offset inks had passed the INGEDE (International Association of the Deinking Industry) deinkability criteria according to the European Recovered Paper Council’s (ERPC) scorecard. In addition to being deinkable, LP-9000 ink systems are engineered and manufactured in accordance with EuPIA (European Printing Ink Association) guidelines and the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) standards. Available in CMYK, Pantone and 12 special spot colors, they are suitable for printing on the non-food contact surface of paper and board used in the packaging of food, pharmaceuticals and other sensitive applications.

Toyo Printing Inks’ LP-9000 ink can be easily removed from a paper

“Deinking is a key process in the paper recycling process. However, suppose the ink cannot be separated from the paper at the deinking stage. In that case, the paper pulp is considered contaminated and unfit to reenter the recycling chain,” explains Melis Türkyener Çelebi, Offset Inks R&D team leader at Toyo Printing Inks. “The LP-9000 Toyo Life Premium Food LO/LM ink series passed the INGEDE Method 11 test with the maximum score of 100/100 for deinkability. This means the ink can be effectively removed from paper, making it possible to convert the deinked paper into raw fibers. This raw material, in turn, can be converted back to a graphic paper of new value.”

Moreover, LP-9000 inks are comprised of plant-based, renewable raw materials. They do not contain any drying agents or release any hexanal, which results in reduced odour intensity. Çelebi added, “This revolutionary ink system was developed here in Manisa and launched last year to much acclaim. They are compliant with the Swiss Ordinance and ISEGA according to Regulation (EU) 1935/2004 and meet global requirements for non-food contact surface inks for food packaging. 

And now, with the recent INGEDE certification, we believe it’s the ideal system for printers and brand owners looking to maximize the use of renewable resources and reduce waste of their end products. The groundbreaking LP-9000 ink systems underscore our commitment to creating a more circular society by improving the recyclability of print materials and reducing the carbon footprint of our operations and those of our customers.”

 

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.
