During her presentation, Ms. Green will discuss a key aspect of TekniPlex Healthcare’s commitment to enhancing eco-friendliness: a dedicated adherence to sustainability’s three “R’s” of reduce, reuse and recycle. While no perfect panacea exists, substantial sustainability gains can be realized through methods such as lightweighting certain packaging elements, reducing energy consumption, reusing materials wherever practicable, and maximizing the amount of packaging substrates compatible with existing recycling streams.
TekniPlex Healthcare, which utilizes advanced materials science expertise to help deliver better patient outcomes, will provide insight on ways to bolster sustainability in the healthcare sector.
At Booth SL-6620, TekniPlex Healthcare will showcase its latest sustainability breakthrough: the world’s first fully transparent recyclable mid-barrier blister package (shown). Recyclable in geographies where the #5 PP recycling stream is available, the mid-barrier blisters feature a polyolefin blister film paired with a barrier PP lidding film. This marks the first time a formed blister + lidding combination is certified as recyclable– a significant milestone in the evolving push to make healthcare packaging more sustainable. TekniPlex Healthcare also will exhibit a fully recyclable polyester mono-material blister + lidding combination, suitable for products that do not require barrier protection.
Other solutions on display include Flexapharm SBC, TekniPlex Healthcare’s series of PVC super barrier polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) coated structures – which offer exemplary barrier against oxygen and moisture – as well as an array of Aclar laminates designed to preserve the efficacy and shelf life of drugs with demanding environmental protection requirements. A variety of the company’s single- and multi-dose pharma product containers also will be exhibited, as will its coated Tyvek and reinforced papers for medical device, pharmaceutical and diagnostic applications.
