Consumer Goods & Retail Packaging
Achieving circular packaging in line with upcoming EU and global legislation is driving innovation in new packaging materials, designs, and formats, which are being introduced to the market with record speed. At first glance, adhesives may appear to play a small role, yet they are crucial for fulfilling numerous functions for the overall packaging and equally important they facilitate recyclability, conformity with regulations such as the PPWR. 
During this presentation, we will share approaches on how to thoughtfully use adhesives in the design and production of sustainable consumer goods packaging to reduce excess materials including plastics, enable recycling, manage waste and drive innovation of new packaging formats.
