Recognised as winners at the German Packaging Award 2023, also, the two packaging concepts, Tubular Bag PurePE and PharmaGuard, will be honoured at the WorldStar Packaging Awards that will be presented on the last day of ProPak Asia, to be held from 12 to 15 June in Bangkok.

Both solutions are based on mono-material structures and impressed the jury with their recyclability, greater material efficiency and reduced carbon footprints.

The polyethylene-based Tubular Bag PurePE concept sets standards in recyclability, material efficiency and in reduction of carbon footprints. Using a film that is 30-microns thinner compared to previous film structures makes it possible, among other things, to reduce resource consumption by 23% and the carbon footprint by 19%. 

A recyclability of 96% for the Tubular Bag PurePE has been certified by the renowned Institute cyclos-HTP. 

“At the same time, we were able to meet the demanding requirements in terms of product protection and functionality for the barrier properties that are essential for cheese ripening, for the ripening process and for puncture resistance,” said Valeska Haux, vice-president, strategic marketing and sustainability, Sudpack.

With the Tubular Bag PurePE, a fully-fledged replacement for conventional PA/PE structures is now available that is also optimal for processing on both full- and semi-automatic packaging machines. 

The PP-based recyclable PharmaGuard film for blister packaging from Sudpack Medica provides a reduced climate impact (in CO2-eq) of up to 47% as well as lower energy and water consumption compared to other commonly used PVC/PVdC and aluminium blister solutions.

The base and lidding films produced in an innovative coextrusion process feature an outstanding array of characteristics, including high transparency and barrier functionality.

Organised annually, the WorldStar Award witnesses a jury that honours 200 current innovations that have already received renowned national and international accolades and that serve as examples of excellence that are charting a path for the future in the fields of sustainability, hygiene and design.
