SÜDPACK received two WorldStar Packaging Awards for the Tubular Bag PurePE and PharmaGuard®. These solutions are based on mono-material structures, and offer recyclability, greater material efficiency and reduced carbon footprints.

SÜDPACK has won two WorldStar Packaging Awards for Tubular Bag PurePE and PharmaGuard®. Both packaging solutions are based on mono-material structures. The recyclability, material efficiency and reduced carbon footprints are what impressed the jurors.

 

The WorldStar Award jury honors 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.

 

 

Tubular Bag PurePE for the international cheese ripening industry

The polyethylene-based concept sets standards in recyclability, material efficiency and in the reduction of carbon footprints. Using a film that is 30 µm 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,” explained Valeska Haux, Vice President Strategic Marketing & Sustainability at SÜDPACK.

 

In summary, 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.

 

A second award for PharmaGuard® 

The PP-based and therefore recyclable film concept for blister packaging from SÜDPACK MEDICA is also a ground-breaking step when it comes to sustainability in the pharmaceutical industry. A life cycle assessment conducted by Sphera has proven that the packaging concept is associated with a greatly 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 aluminum 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. “What is worth particular mention is the excellent water vapor barrier thanks to having PP as the base material,” emphasized Haux. Last but not least, the perfectly matched films guarantee top sealing performance, which is reflected by maximum process reliability and packaging quality.

 

Haux is particularly pleased “that our new products are regarded and appraised in the food, medical device and pharmaceutical industries as examples of excellence on an international level when it comes to sustainability.”

 

The WorldStar Packaging Awards will be presented on the last day of ProPak Asia, which will be held from June 12 to 15 in Bangkok.
