We are committed to rethINK packaging in the sense of a Circular Economy to protect our environment by recycling, reusing, and reducing packaging. It’s about enhancing the performance of packaging to create circularity enabling 100 percent collection and recycling. By doing so, we can benefit from the advantages of packaging - especially of plastic packaging – without the current negative side effects such as ocean and nature leakage.
For the realization of circular packaging solutions, inks and coatings play an essential enabling role due to their technical functionalities. They can close technical performance gaps of certain materials, such as paper and mono-plastic, improve their properties and therefore allow their use for new applications. That’s why we are actively driving the formulation of eco-friendly inks and coatings concretely addressing the needs of circular packaging solutions. Therefore, we continuously rethink our solutions to further boost material performance and reduce complexity of packaging structures always focused on reusability, recyclability, and the reduced use of non-renewable raw materials.
