- Brand owners that use food and non-food packaging.
A special area accommodating the sponsors’ stands will be set aside for meetings between conference participants and sector operators.
Topics 2021 Edition
Extrusion, blow moulding, thermoforming and all the other technologies used in this field are making manufacturing processes more efficient all the time. Recycling systems “close the circle”, further increasing the value of the materials involved.
Light, versatile and efficient, plastic materials are subject to a relentless process of evolution, and have always played a leading role in the world of food and non-food packaging.
The Circular Economy
The future of plastic packaging material is closely linked to its ability to meet the criteria of the circular economy, which require that waste be transformed into a valuable resource.

EFFICIENT ALTERNATIVES TO BETA MEASURING SYSTEMS FOR CAST & BLOWN FILMS
The traditional method using beta radiations for measuring the thickness of film produced on lines like cast & blown film, even if it maintains its validity, is facing more and more difficulties to be accepted by the end users. Position mainly due to the presence of ionising radiations and of the authorization procedures that worldwide have become increasingly restrictive. Different technologies are available since long time, but with limitations in performances and use, however new technologies are becoming more attractive to be used in these type of production lines. An overview of the actual status of measurement methods is presented here.

ENOUGH OF THESE BOTTLES!
Of course, this is a provocation for a sector that we all want to see growing. But the circular economy that we are all focused on doesn’t mean just recycling PET bottles, which up to now have always been considered the quintessential noble polymer. We must go further and “ennoble” all the recycled polymers from different packaging sources, so they become the main “raw materials” for new packaging. As a partner to recycling companies, MacDermid Enthone has accepted this challenge by investing and developing new products, processes and innovative services that will contribute to the growth of this worthy economy.

ACQUA SANT'ANNA: A REFLECTION ON THE VALUE OF PLASTIC MATERIAL
Acqua Sant'Anna has always paid attention to the surrounding environment and invested in eco-sustainable solutions. The first in the world to introduce a bottle of mineral water made from a biopolymer of plant origin, which has the same technical characteristics as ordinary plastics, but dissolves in compost in less than 80 days: Sant'Anna Bio Bottle. Today, more than ever, we need to think about the value of plastic, the best available material for lightness, usability, versatility, and to find real solutions for its correct recycling. The introduction of a deposit would allow widespread collection and the consequent virtuous recycling process.
