Reinventing the future of soft plastics

17 May 2022
Theatre 1, Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre
Packaging and Packing Materials

With less than 5% of soft plastic being recycled in Australia, there is great pressure to ‘do something’ about soft plastics. Some would push for bans on this material but this overlooks the benefits of soft plastics from product protection and food safety, food waste and environmental impact and overall total cost of packaging perspectives. Emerging technologies are coming to the fore to drive food-grade quality recycling of soft plastics. The opportunities for the whole supply chain may be large if we can develop a whole of industry approach to all aspects of soft plastics. Hear insights on:

  • The current state of soft plastics recycling in Australia
  • Emerging technologies to recycle plastics
  • Delivering a circular economy for soft plastics in Australia
