AIP invites members to packaging webinar

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) has invited members and colleagues to its industry webinar.

The Polymers in Packaging: Manufacturing-Consumption-Recycling webinar, run in partnership with PerkinElmer, will happen on 10 November.

It will discuss the developing circular economy associated with plastics manufacturing and cover the challenges, insight and future trends of recycling plastics.

The webinar will also look at how materials analysis could add value in manufacturing and recycling and discuss the types of cutting-edge technology used to ensure product quality.

The AIP said the polymer market consists of a huge diversity of manufacturers of industrial products running many different processes yet still facing a similar challenge.

“There is more and more pressure to achieve high product quality and reduce costs in order to stay one step ahead of the competition,” the AIP said in a statement.

“Analysis in polymer manufacturing is essential for many industries, including packaging and the ever-growing recycling industry.”

“Materials laboratories face increasing polymer testing challenges from raw materials right up to finished products. Material identification and characterisation is crucial at every stage.”

The webinar will feature Pact Group material science specialist Steven Petinakis and Perkin Elmer product applications specialist Tomer Simonovich as speakers.
