The focus on; and action towards sustainability is rising and the industry is ready to witness unique solutions at Interpack 2023

Coesia will showcase pouching machinery to integrated inline printing and pouch-in-box lines. All the automated solutions are sustainability-minded. With its Centre of Expertise Sustainability, the company monitors new material-machine interaction working with key customers and suppliers to co-develop new packaging solutions. 

Through R&D investments, it has developed equipment capable of producing packaging with lower carbon footprint, while retrofitting the installed base to make it compliant with new eco-friendly and recyclable materials.

Marchesini Group has a large area dedicated to sustainability and solutions for packaging pharmaceutical and beauty products. The company believes in reducing production impact; to review and redesign the products so that they are increasingly green, reducing environmental impact. 

The company at Interpack will have a number of machines and lines able to package products with different types of materials, including paper, recyclable and recycled mono-material plastics and aluminium.

It developed a paper-based tray which replaces the plastic tray technologies. The paper board tray is known for its sustainable product design and for being tailor-made on the product.
Syntegon is offering digital solutions for liquid pharmaceutical processing at Interpack. Also, an IDH is at the heart of a cookie system that boasts fast format changes and gentle handling. A high-performance line for bars emphasises sustainability and digitalisation.

Syntegon’s packaging machines can run both mono-material and cold or heat-sealable barrier papers at high production efficiency. The machines can package products in bioplastic films, allowing our customers to reduce their carbon footprint. Thanks to its biodegradability, the material helps to avoid plastic litter.

Weber will offer an all-round sustainability - resealable pure-line rigid film packaging at Interpack. It will showcase full solution line concepts from product preparation to the finished, checked primary packaging.

The recycling economy, resource conservation, digital technologies, and product safety are not only key topics at interpack, but have been a focus at Weber for many years. The Weber booth will feature solutions as well as dedicated experiential displays addressing these key topics.

Zotefoams will be showcasing its ReZorce circular packaging, which is a new mono-material barrier packaging and MuCell extrusion - By injecting atmospheric gases into plastic extrusions during the melt phase, the process creates a product with a foamed core bound by solid skins that uses considerably less polymer than solid extrusions without impacting performance.

The company will also showcase Ecozote sustainability + which is a new range of foams responding to the need for plastic products that improve circularity or reduce reliance on fossil fuel-derived raw materials.
