Can One Material Be Enough?
Designing Food and Consumer Packaging for Recyclability
The goal of the European Union (EU) to recycle all plastic packaging in Europe in an economically viable manner by 2030 is exerting enormous pressure on the packaging industry. It is very common that packaging films are made of different materials, and this causes challenges since they are often not easy to recycle. The demand is high for recyclable films which at the same time deliver the same or only slightly reduced food shelf life and packaging productivity. Various current examples show that this is possible.
International Polymer Processing, the journal of the Polymer Processing Society, is a discussion forum for the world-wide community of engineers and scientists in the field of polymer processing.
The journal covers research and industrial application in the very specific areas of designing polymer products, processes, processing machinery and equipment.
