Packaging & Recycling 2022 is the forum for packaging and recycling companies in Italy, an event that industry operators cannot absolutely miss.
Packaging & Recycling 2022 will be running from 29 to 30 June in the prestigious spaces of Museo Storico Alfa Romeo in Arese.
Now at its fifth edition, Packaging & Recycling 2022 is dedicated to plastics packaging and its lifecycle, from design to post-consumer recycling.
In a context in which plastic packaging has come under the scrutiny of the public opinion and the media, Packaging & Recycling 2022 will stand out for the quality of its contents.
In this field, the ability to keep pace with times plays a decisive role for packaging manufacturers, recyclers and technology suppliers looking for new solutions capable of combining high performance with respect for the environment.
Packaging & Recycling 2022will see the participation of top figurestop figures from the world of research, universities and major brand owners who will illustrate their strategies in the field of packaging and the evolution of consumer preferences. In the past editions, a number of leading companies took part in the event such as Coop, Ferrarelle, Ferrero, Galbani, Heinz, Henkel & Nestlè.
The future of polymer packaging materials is closely linked to their ability to meet the criteria of the Circular Economy which involves the transformation of waste into a valuable resource.
Lightweight, versatile and environment-friendly, plastic materials have always been the focus of food and non-food packaging, in a process of evolution that never stops, where the role of biodegradable and compostable polymers is growing steadily.
Extrusion, blow moulding, thermoforming and other technologies allow increasingly efficient and performing machining processes. The recycling systems "close the loop", giving new value to materials.

Amadori, a story of sustainable innovation
Amadori believes that being sustainable means contributing to the creation of a healthy, fair and environmentally friendly food system. This finds its foundation in a fully integrated, controlled and low-impact 100% Italian supply chain.
It is within this framework, that the Group's commitment extends to packaging. The company has embarked on a rigorous journey towards achieving sustainable results in line with Italian, European and global regulations: SDGs "the 17 Sustainable Development Goals; Circular Economy Package; RRP, recovery and resilience plan.
Against the Agenda 2030 goals, Amadori has chosen to lean towards low-weight and/or low-thickness packaging solutions; carry on with the substitution of multi-material packaging solutions with single-material solutions and, where possible, employ the greatest amount of post-consumer and post-industrial recycled polymers.
During 2020, we conducted an LCA study to investigate our packaging solutions. Indeed, we are convinced that a preventive analysis approach through LCA studies is the best tool to quantify the impact outputs of a solution and preventively choose the best one among alternatives.

Plastic packaging & sustainability for home & personal care
In Home and Personal care businesses, many sustainability challenges impact on plastics as they are the most used packaging materials. Implementing sustainability goals requires new techniques in design and manufacturing. Compared to virgin materials, the chemical and physical performance of polymers might influence the product’s features which are also visible to the consumer. Technological evolution is bringing continuous improvement in the quality and availability of these materials. With this regard, a strong supply chain collaboration is needed to achieve common objectives for the market.

How much is circular pet? The new italian epr collection model
A recent report, commissioned to Eunomia by Zero Waste Europe, reported an analysis of the current state of circularity of PET bottles in Europe. To date, according to the spread European collection and recycling scheme, only a 17% of Recycled PET is effectively put into new bottles, a data quite far from the ambitious European targets for the use of the RPET, valid from 2025. To face these challenges, CoriPET developed an integrated selective PET liquid container collection system that allows the development of a real circular economy, combining an implemented and optimized collection model with the possibility of obtaining a high quality RPET, ready to be a bottle again.

Granarolo sustainability from the barn to the final packaging
Innovation continues to be one of the main drivers of our company’s growth. The development of new products is the result of a careful analysis of the needs of consumers, who look with increasing interest at functional food and well-being, as wee as on the study of the different contexts for the marketing of these products. In 2021 Granarolo focused on identifying new targets, new markets or new consumption opportunities to enhance the excellence of supply chain materials.
The activity aimed at mitigating the environmental impact of packaging has also been increasingly incisive, with particular attention to the reduction of plastic content, the use of recyclable plastics and the replacement of plastic material with environmentally friendly material.
In the packaging industry, environmental sustainability has become increasingly important, involving diversified actions: the reduction of the consumption of plastic materials on the one hand, and the use of reusable or recyclable material on the other.

Still thinking about bottles? The tray is served!
Despite the best efforts of all of us, anti-plastic media propaganda is having more success in negatively influencing public opinion than we are achieving in demonstrating that plastics are not public enemy number one. One thing it is true: the big amount of used plastic that it is still not included in the recycling system. We need to face this threat. It is A MUST to take care about it, for us, for the planet. We demonstraded the fully recyclability of PET bottles (BtoB). Now it is the moment to move forward to TtoT and flexible packaging. Let's continue defending plastic as a valuable material.

The post-consumer recycled plastics in packaging
Mandatory regulations and a growing consumers’ attention to sustainability are causing changes both in the recycling and packaging sectors, accelerating the dynamics of technological and process innovation.
The European Commission has established the recycling of 65% of packaging waste by 2025, a percentage that must rise to 70% by 2030. Ambitious goals that can only be achieved with the recovery and enhancement of the plastics coming from the urban separate waste collection (PCR).
Breplast has, therefore, equipped itself with innovative technologies aimed at improving both the quality and the aesthetic performance of its 100% certified PCR granules and being able to meet the expectations of sophisticated sectors such as cosmetics, personal care and automotive.
The right technology for an increasingly eco-friendly packaging
In packaging, processors are constantly engaged in searching new solutions that meet customer expectations without forgetting the global challenge that will lead to an increasingly use of recycled and regenerated plastics in the production processes. It therefore becomes essential to use highly technological and communicative systems able to interact with the production plant and correctly manage the processes for using the new regenerated plastic materials achieving the desired results. With over 40 years of experience CONTREX, a Moretto brand, is the right partner in providing innovative solutions for cast and blown film extrusion lines, offering innovations aimed at a circular economy that guarantee real production benefits.

From a recycled granule to consumer
It’s a long way for plastic material to go back to consumer, starting as a waste there are many steps before it can loop successfully. Going through selection, design and production its own quality will determine its success. Quality of recycled material must fulfill technical and other requirements to fit properly in the life of a brand. We will investigate technical, organoleptic and safety requirements that are fundamental to bring back to consumer a second life plastic.

Pcr from domestic waste collection and fertilizers from compostable bio-plastics: the italian model as leading reference
Good news for Italy's performance in terms of circular economy. According to the latest Circular Economy Network report, in Italy the recycling percentage of all waste has reached almost 68%, the highest figure in the European Union. Virtuous examples also come from the stream of biocompostable products, which must be disposed in organic waste collection since January 1, 2022, anticipating the analogous commitment that will be introduced in the EU in 2024. Massimo Veronelli, Global Sales Green Economy Director of Sirmax, will explain how the group, in collaboration with the national consortia, supports the good Italian performance in Europe.

Towards a novel strategy of reuse of non-recyclable plastic waste
The accumulation of plastic wastes represents one of the main environmental issue that our society has to tackle. The development of proper strategies of waste management is of crucial importance and different approaches are being investigated to effectively reduce plastic wastes generated by their improper or inefficient disposal. Moreover, the research is currently focused on the development of innovative recycling approaches. Indeed, although most of plastic materials are potentially recyclable, only 15% of the worldwide plastic wastes are currently recycled, while the remaining 85% is usually incinerated to recover thermal energy. The hurdles to an efficient recycling come from the improper management of the end-of-life plastic goods. Furthermore, the highly heterogeneous nature and versatility of plastic and polymeric materials has led to the development of multilayered materials, composites, blends and many other different species, whose management and/or reprocessing to yield high value products is extremely challenging. As in Italy, about the 50% of plastic waste is composed by heterogeneous plastic items, the aim of our project is to develop a novel, multidisciplinary and integrated approach, moving in the circular economy context, to reuse non-recyclable, heterogeneous mixture of plastic wastes generated at the end of the sorting procedures in Italian plastic recycling plants, the so-called Plasmix. Our preliminary results suggest that chemical recycling can be a valuable approach to obtain a new material from Plasmix, whose applications and economic benefits are currently under investigation.
