Cartonboard and Cellulose Film - New Technologies for Packaging

30 May 2018

Organised by IOM Communications on behalf of The Packaging Society of The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining

With the current focus on packaging, it is a great opportunity to hear about the cutting edge developments and ongoing research into packaging made from natural renewable resources. These include materials such as Barrier treated cartonboards, cellulose films and moulded pulp products. The economics of these products has been tough, competing against alternative laminates, however, new technologies emerging have made them more competitive and attractive to the Packaging markets for Food and ‘to go’ beverages.

Issues covered will include Applications, Performance and suitability for Recycling, Composting and Sustainability.
There is already a surge in interest in these materials for packaging applications and if you are involved with packaging development at the sharp end, then this is an event you cannot afford to miss.

The Packaging Society and IOM3 are committed to informing Society members and all members of the Packaging Community of leading edge technologies. This event is the first one of a series, the second one will be about Corrugated case materials, later this year.

Target audience: 

This event is aimed at Packaging Specifiers, Packaging Technologists, Packaging Producers and Retailers, especially in the food and beverage sectors. It is also intended for IOM3 Postgraduate and Undergraduate Packaging Diploma Students as part of their ongoing professional development and will count towards their CPD.
