The Future of Packaging – Trends, Opportunities and Alternatives
Therefore, our institute director Prof. B. Sadlowsky will speak on February 3, 2020 on the topic:
“Future packaging – trends, opportunities and alternatives”.
What opportunities do Reduce, Reuse and Recycle offer?
Packaging research provides the answers. It examines the three major packaging trends: reduce, reuse, recycle. Gardeners and farmers can find out more about this at the Hamburg Chamber of Agriculture on Feb. 3, 2020.
In his lecture “Packaging in horticulture – what will it look like in the future?”, Prof. B. Sadlowsky will present studies by the BFSV Packaging Institute on this day. These have shown, for example, that individual packaging materials can be reduced by up to 75%. That pays off!
What other options are there? Various alternatives are now in circulation, especially for food and horticulture. One trend: “Replace.” Prof. B. Sadlowsky will show where and how plastic-based packaging can be replaced by waste products made from natural materials.
The audience can be curious. Anyone interested in sustainable packaging is in the right place for this event. Registrations are still being accepted by the Hamburg Chamber of Agriculture until January 30, 2020, and the participation fee is 15 euros.
