Packaging industry demonstrates innovative solutions and discusses new approaches at FachPack 2019, September 24-26, Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.
Demonstrations against the flood of waste and calls for more environmental protection in the 1980s and 1990s led to the Packaging Ordinance, can deposits and dual systems. The discussion about environmentally friendly packaging is nothing new, but has reached a new height recently with “ocean littering” and the public debate about plastic. FachPack, the European trade fair for packaging, processes and technology, therefore made “Environmentally friendly packaging” its key theme for 2019. It provides an opportunity for companies in the packaging industry to present their innovative solutions and new approaches at the fair and discuss them with customers – at their stands, in lecture forums, in special shows, and at award ceremonies.
“To make the key theme of ‘Environmentally friendly packaging’ clearer, we have divided it into four areas,” explains Cornelia Fehlner, Director Exhibition FachPack at NürnbergMesse. “Specifically, it’s all about recycled packaging, materials that help to save resources, reusable packaging and systems, and new processes that go easy on the environment.” Products that fit one or more of these four categories are specially marked in the exhibitor and product database on the FachPack website. Visitors with an interest in recycled packaging, for example, can draw up a list containing all the relevant products from the exhibiting companies on this subject and learn about them in advance. At the fair, too, the exhibitors in the four key theme categories are specially identified to make them easier for interested visitors to find.
