Retrofitting plastic packaging machines
Plastic is an important and ubiquitous material. It is cheap, durable and has multiple functions. However, plastic products are taking their toll on the environment. For instance, the million tonnes of plastic litter that end up in the oceans every year are a cause of growing public concern. This is why preventing plastic waste is a top priority in Europe. The EU has banned certain plastics and the preference for paper-based alternatives is high. To assist in the shift to paper-based packaging, the EU-funded PAPER SOLUTIONS project will bring to the market a suite of innovative retrofit technologies that can convert plastic packaging machinery to paper packaging. Its target market is the global packaging industry. The end goal is to contribute to a cleaner environment and increase profits by promoting an eco-friendly model of business.
