Recycling of Flexible Plastic Packagingpresents thorough and detailed information on the management and recycling of flexible plastic packaging, focusing on the latest actual/potential methods and techniques and offering actionable solutions that minimize waste and increase product efficiency and sustainability. Sections cover flexible plastic packaging and its benefits, applications and challenges. This is followed by in-depth coverage of the materials, types and forms of flexible packaging. Other key discussions cover collection and pre-treatment, volume reduction, separation from other materials, chemical recycling, post-processing and reuse, current regulations and policies, economic aspects and immediate trends.
This information will be highly valuable to engineers, scientists and R&D professionals across industry. In addition, it will also be of great interest to researchers in academia, those in government, or anyone with an interest in recycling who is looking to further advance and implement recycling methods for flexible plastic packaging.
Presents state-of-the-art methods and technologies regarding the processing of flexible plastic packaging waste
Addresses the challenges currently associated with both waste management and available recycling methods
Opens the door to innovation, supporting improved recycling methods, manufacturing efficiency and industrial sustainability
Industry: Engineers, scientists and R&D professionals involved in plastic packaging; Manufacturers of products that require plastic packaging (e.g. food, building & construction, pharmaceuticals, personal care, consumer goods). Academia: Researchers and scientists in packaging, sustainability, plastics engineering, polymer science, polymer chemistry, and processing technology. Other: Government officials, NGOs and recycling professionals concerned with recycling of plastics and/or packaging
We take a look at some of the ways the packaging industry is moving forward with sustainability in this issue. We also cover how one company is dealing with the cardboard shortage, and why some cardboard, namely from pizza boxes, may not need to be tossed into the garbage.
