Packaging – Application Developments

Updated: Feb 8, 2022

As COVID-19 continues to influence our lives, we have had to take the unfortunate decision to change our first in-person event for the year to a Zoom webinar.

This webinar is in collaboration with the Design Institute of Australia (DIA).

Our plastics industry is adopting the circular economy and doing so by using new technologies and pathways. This webinar will provide examples of such innovation.

The evening will commence with a presentation by Joe Foster from OF Packaging on what is new in their market offerings using plastic materials.

Alex Hofmann from BASF Australia will cover in his presentation the Circular Economy and recycling assisting the local industry by reducing landfill of end-of-life plastic products.

We will hear from Nestlé Australia on how the company is implementing Sustainability in new ways through reducing virgin materials in their plastic packaging products.

Our last presentation of this evening will be from Qenos about the different Advanced Recycling options which could be used by the industry.

This seminar is sponsored by BASF Australia.
