Airnov Healthcare Packaging, a global leader in controlled atmosphere packaging, will exhibit a range of solutions at the Connect in Pharma event, due to be held in Geneva from 14-15 September 2022.

Connect in Pharma is a new feature to the industry calendar. Based in the heart of Europe’s pharmaceutical sector, it promises to be a one-stop hub for the development, industrialization, and contract manufacturing of drug delivery systems and pack and filling technology.

Attendees will have the opportunity to discover the latest designs and manufacturers in controlled atmosphere packaging from Airnov, solutions that are built to protect healthcare products from humidity and oxygen to maintain drug stability and extend shelf life.

In particular, guests are invited to discover three innovations, including – 

Eqius – Airnov’s equilibrium RH stabilizers are sorbent products that maintain a certain humidity level in pharmaceutical packaging in cases where specific relative humidity conditions are required. These products are specifically of interest to protect dry powder inhalers, gelatine capsules, gummies, and marijuana products.

Oxynov – These barrier bottles are engineered with a six-layer structure to block oxygen ingress and provide an excellent barrier against moisture. One of these layers includes Ethylene Vinyl Alcohol (EVOH). This is especially effective at inhibiting the oxidation of sensitive drugs.

Hat-B – Airnov’s latest innovative vial carries numerous sustainable features, a key theme explored at the inaugural Connect in Pharma. Hat-B vials are designed to limit carbon footprint with an optimized amount of plastic. 

They contain an adjustable desiccant quantity and incorporate versatile sorbent material to fit stability requirements. The vial, suitable for the pharmaceutical, diagnostic, and nutraceutical markets, is available in two sizes and is compatible with filling lines.

Laurent Stoufflet, head of sales EMEA at Airnov, said, “We are tremendously excited about exhibiting at this brand-new event in Switzerland and look forward to meeting new and existing contacts to discuss how we can support each other. It promises to be a packed two days full of inspiring presentations and products.”

Visitors to Connect in Pharma, hosted at Geneva’s Palexpo, will be able to find Airnov at Stand D15.

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 grown 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!
