Packaging machinery's role in sustainability and reduced carbon footprint
What concepts like sustainability and carbon footprint actually mean for the packaging industry is still being defined by packaging facility owners and OEMs alike, but without doubt, it's affecting machine design development and implementation.
There aren’t yet any agreed upon standards for sustainability, energy efficiency or carbon footprint in packaging machinery. In fact, machinery’s role in making sustainable packaging a practical reality deserves much greater attention than it’s received to date.
Machinery’s ability ro adapt to new packages and materials, energy consumption and operational efficiency are all important considerations covered in this podcast, sponsored by Schneider Electric as part of its global campaign titled ‘make the most of your energy.’
Podcast speakers are David Luttenberger from global consumer research and advisory company Iconoculture, and a former packaging industry trade publication editor; Mike Grinager from Brenton Engineering, a leading packaging original equipment manufacturer based in Alexandria, Minnesota, and John Kowal from Schneider Electric ELAU Packaging Solutions, a global leader in energy management and packaging automation solutions.
