Circular economy for flexible packaging

Despite being incredibly resource-efficient, household flexible packaging has a problem when it comes to circularity. Little progress has been made by the industry which to date has been focusing on a flawed assumption that re-designing to all polyolefin structures and relying on mechanical recycling will deliver on the sustainability pledges that collectively we have signed up to as an industry.

Packaging Europe is hosting a webinar on ‘BOPET films and the circular economy’ on 23 September 2021 from 1830 hrs IST. 

In this webinar, the organizers take a more holistic view of current PET-based flexible packaging structures and their compatibility in feedstock recycling processes, as well as exploring all PET structures as the gold standard the industry can aspire to in terms of high plastic-to-plastic recycling rates through monomer recycling.

BOPET Films Europe is a member-based trade association with the twin aims of promoting the positive role BOPET films play in the European flexible packaging industry and sponsoring research aimed at boosting the circularity of our products and of the wider industry.

Steven Davies, chairman, BOPET films Europe; Rosemarie Wuite, Business developer, Searious Business; and Elisabeth Skoda, editor, Packaging Europe will be the speakers for this webinar.
