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.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
