ExxonMobil will demonstrate sustainable solutions at the booths of machine manufacturers (OEM) and distributors at K2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany. 

Sustainable solutions for the value chain differ by segment needs. ExxonMobil is focused on addressing those needs by utilizing our full performance polymers offering and our Exxtend technology for advanced recycling,” said David Hergenrether, vice-president for polyethylene at ExxonMobil.

Visitors should drop by ExxonMobil’s information hub (North Entrance #11) for full details and directions to all the demonstrations, which cover packaging, automotive, consumer products, agriculture, hygiene, and medical applications. 

There are at least 60 OEM collaborations at K2022.

Solutions made with certified circular polymers using Exxtend technology for advanced recycling of plastic waste, which can broaden the range of plastics that can be recycled, will be demonstrated. Certified circular polymers can deliver the same performance as virgin resins, which is critical if the value chain wants to use recycled content for sensitive applications such as food-grade packaging. 

Then there are solutions that enable mechanically recycled content to be incorporated, and even increased, because ExxonMobil performance polymers are used to maintain or boost performance.

Mono-material solutions, such as PE//PE laminates, which are designed for recyclability by reducing the number of components, including those often considered more difficult to recycle. 

Film formulations based on Exceed S performance polyethylene (PE) polymers which, by offering combinations of stiffness and toughness while being easy to process, enable converters to rethink film redesign for simpler solutions. Exceed S can help facilitate solutions with sustainability benefits by enhancing film performance, maintaining comparable performance at a thinner gauge, producing more durable mono-material film structures, or incorporating high percentages of recycled content.

Lubrication solutions that enhance the efficiency of hydraulic systems can lead to reduced energy consumption for both industrial and mobile equipment. ExxonMobil will showcase Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series, a hydraulic oil that allows up to a six percent increase in hydraulic pump efficiency, compared to standard hydraulic fluids. Long lubricant life helps minimize the need for waste oil disposal with the Mobil DTE 10 excel series, helping to extend oil change intervals and ensure clean systems.

ExxonMobil will introduce a product portfolio, including ExxonMobil PP grades, Vistamaxx performance polymers, and Exact plastomers, which has recently undergone rigorous certification for use in medical applications including syringes, springs, IV bags, and bottles.

K provides a unique opportunity for ExxonMobil to display and explain our full portfolio of solutions to take on the challenge of sustainability,” said Hergenrether. “Working with our customers and the value chain we can make a meaningful difference in the world.”

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.
