New advancements in technological innovation and discussions relating to the current and future states of the PET packaging industry will be session focal points at the 2019 PETnology Americas conference, May 14-15 at the Georgia Tech Global Learning Center in Atlanta, GA.
PETnology Americas 2019, produced in collaborative partnership of The Packaging Conference and PETnology, is a technology-focused PET packaging conference in the Americas. The first event, presented in June 2018, was marked by lively and thought-provoking discussion along the PET packaging value chain with a special focus on sustainability and circular economy.
Increased aggressive sustainability goals are driving the industry to take a closer look at recycling challenges in the US, as collection rates are remaining stagnant, creating a direct impact on the amount of available post-consumer recycled materials needed to achieve these goals. The conference agenda includes topics such as a deep look into recycling challenges, innovative resin development, the Circular Economy, machinery and technological advancements, as well as innovations in package design, caps and closures as well as labeling technologies.
In addition to the conference schedule, several key industry suppliers will also be promoting their technology via tabletop exhibits. For additional information, please visit:
