Palsgaard, a world leader in plant-based emulsifiers and polymer additives for the global food, packaging and plastics industries, will take the opportunity of K 2022 in Düsseldorf, Germany, to position itself as a preferred supplier to polymer producers, masterbatch manufacturers and compounders seeking to lower their carbon footprint and go renewable. At the world’s largest plastics trade fair in Hall 7, Level 1, Stand D20, Palsgaard will present its complete portfolio of sustainable polymer additives and offer first-hand insight into new developments.

“As the plastics industry is transforming from a linear to a circular economy, there is a fast-growing demand for renewable alternatives to conventional fossil-based formulations,” says Ulrik Aunskjær, global business director, Bio Specialty Additives at Palsgaard. “Beyond the more basic raw materials feedstock, this also applies to functional additives, where common synthetic chemistry is under increasing regulatory pressure while consumers demand more natural, safe and healthy ingredients also in the polymers in which their products are packaged. At Palsgaard, we are addressing these issues with a full range of plant-based, food-grade polymer additives, backed by advanced customer and application support.”

Visitors can learn more about polymer additives at K 2022

Palsgaard’s Einar additives in packaging plastics serve as highly effective anti-fog and anti-static surfactants, dispersing aids, ageing modifiers, EPS coatings and mould release agents. At K 2022, the company will introduce new plant-based innovations in its growing portfolio, developed and optimized at Palsgaard’s Polymer Application Centre in Denmark to help customers stay ahead of increasingly stringent regulations, such as on food contact, without compromising performance or quality. All of these products provide an excellent drop-in replacement for fossil-based additives in existing polymer formulations and perfectly fit new responsible packaging solutions.

Palsgaard will also update K 2022 visitors on significant investments made into the future of its polymer additives business. The expansion of the company’s carbon-neutral production capacity is proceeding as scheduled. After successfully commissioning a new emulsifier pellet line with a capacity of 10,000 tonnes in 2020, the Juelsminde site will receive a state-of-the-art spray tower, which is expected to go on stream in the fourth quarter of 2023 and add 30,000 tonnes to Palsgaard’s existing spray capacity. This will be complemented by multiple new reaction, distillation and esterification plants, altogether doubling the company’s overall production capacity by 2024.

New sales offices in Brazil, the United States and China will strengthen the support of customers in these regions, as Palsgaard is delivering on its strategy to develop long-term close partnerships and grow its global service capacities.

Visit Palsgaard at K 2022 in Düsseldorf from 19-26 October in Hall 7, Level 1, Stand D20 to meet the company’s product and market specialists and discuss the sustainable benefits and superior performance of the company’s plant-based polymer additives.

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.
