BillerudKorsnäs is set to host a webinar on ‘FibreForm – the climate-smart alternative to plastic’ on 8 September 2021 from 1330 hrs IST.

In this 50-minute webinar session, the BillerudKorsnäs team will introduce attendees to FibreForm, a totally unique paper from BillerudKorsnäs, which can help to reduce, or even replace, the plastic content in trays, blisters, or other types of conventional packaging.

You will be surprised to know that FibreForm can be run on existing converting machines. This and much more will be dug into during the webinar and BillerudKorsnäs will also take a trip to its lab at Gruvön mill to show how very easy it is to run FibreForm, and look at how the final packaging compares to a corresponding plastic solution. Besides this, the speakers will spend some time on the environmental aspects of the paper and touch upon performed life-cycle assessments (LCA´s).

The speakers for the webinar include Marcello Muratori, sales – FibreForm, BillerudKorsnäs; Thomas Fettkenheuer, sales – FibreForm and customer point of contact – Germany, BillerudKorsnäs; and Louise Wohrne, Sustainability director, BillerudKorsnäs.

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!
