SIG leads the beverage carton industry with the first paper straw solution

SIG is the first in the industry to offer a market-ready alternative to plastic straws, announcing today that a paper straw solution will be delivered to first customers in the first quarter of 2019.

With growing concern about the environmental impact of plastic straws, the food and beverage industry urgently needs an alternative solution. SIG’s new paper straw offers such a solution.

Markus Boehm, Chief Market Officer at SIG, said: “We saw an opportunity to address concerns about marine litter and offer added value to our customers by helping them meet consumer and regulatory demand to scrap plastic straws. This win-win is a great example of how our commitment to go Way Beyond Good for the environment is delivering real business benefits.”

Nestlé is the first customer to introduce SIG’s paper straw solution and has already tested the market launch in the Dominican Republic.

Michael Schwan, Manufacturing Manager RTD - Dairy Strategic Business Unit at Nestlé: “We are committed to improving the environmental performance of our packaging and addressing the critical issue of single-use plastics is an important part of that. We need effective, scalable solutions and SIG’s new paper straw has the potential to meet that need.”


Seeking a solution
SIG does not make straws, but some of its portion-size packs are designed to be used with a straw for convenience on the go and the company has been working with suppliers to develop alternatives.

Paper is renewable and recyclable. This forest-based material already makes up 70-80% of SIG’s cartons on average, and the look and feel of paper also visibly reinforces its environmental credentials to consumers.

SIG worked closely with a manufacturing partner to develop an innovative and exclusive solution that makes the paper straw robust enough to pierce the closed straw hole of SIG’s aseptic cartons. The wrapper for the straw has also been redesigned to help prevent litter by remaining attached to the pack to be recycled along with the rest of the carton.
The new paper straws will be made of paperboard from FSCTM (Forest Stewardship CouncilTM)-certified forests or other controlled sources. Customers can already include the FSC label on any SIG carton and they will be able to add the label to the paper straws once the manufacturing partner has completed FSC Chain-of-Custody certification, which is expected during the second half of 2019.
The new paper straw solution supports SIG’s efforts to use more renewable materials. The initial volume of paper straws will be limited during the launch phase, as SIG ramps up capacity with its manufacturing partner. SIG is also continuing to invest in new ways to apply this alternative straw solution to a wider variety of packaging formats.

SIG is determined to collaborate with customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to find new approaches to reduce single-use plastics, foster recycling and minimise waste. Helping customers improve the sustainability of their products is an important part of the company’s commitment to go Way Beyond Good by putting more into the environment and society than it takes out.

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik
Weimar (Germany), February 2019: At POWTECH 2019 in Nuremberg, the plant manufacturing and process development specialist, Glatt, is presenting a groundbreaking waste-free process that recycles the phosphorus from ash to produce ready-to-use high-quality fertilisers. The second highlight is a new plant concept for continuous powder agglomeration: it’s extremely economical, versatile and, thanks to its modular design, is ready for operation in 2 weeks.

Glatt Ingenieurtechnik will be presenting a market-ready process at POWTECH that fulfils the legal obligation of German waste disposal companies to recover phosphorus. In the first step of the two-stage "PHOS4green" process, a suspension is produced from the phosphate-containing ash, a mineral acid and, depending on the objective, other components. The suspension is then spray granulated in the fluidised bed. This results in fertiliser granulates that are available to plants and soil, which can be discharged, filled and delivered directly after the desired grain size has been reached.

"Fluidised bed granulation has been a mature process for decades, enabling a simple and safe introduction to fertiliser ordinance-compliant phosphate recovery," says Lutz Heinzl, Sales Manager of the Food, Feed & Fine Chemicals competence area at Glatt. "The process recycles 100% of the ash. By flexibly adapting the recipes, a wide variety of fertilisers, including complex varieties (NP, PK, NPK), can be produced, which can be placed on the market as new products."

Transferring fine powders and powder mixtures into uniformly porous, practically dust-free, soluble and meterable granulates is what the new "GF ModFlex" plant concept achieves in an endless loop with consistently top quality and safety. The space miracle is based on established Glatt fluid bed technology and, thanks to gentle process control, preserves the nutritional and functional properties of the products.

With this compact modular system, Glatt is responding to manufacturers who want to upgrade or renew their machinery at short notice, with limited space and with production volumes of 100–3000 kg/h. Designed to meet market requirements, the Atex-compliant concept, equipped with WIP cleaning, also scores with an extremely short installation time of only 12 days and an integrated room and zone concept.

Another highlight presented by Glatt is the continuous powder synthesis method: APPtec®. Using spray calcination in a pulsating hot gas stream at temperatures of 200-900 °C, powders with particularly narrow particle size distributions can be produced from a wide range of starting materials. The unique and easily controllable thermodynamic process conditions make it possible to precisely adjust the product properties — for example with regard to chemical composition, morphology, phase structure and coating or surface chemistry. In addition to the joint development of APPtec®-based powders and contract production, Glatt also offers reactors of the ProAPP® series in various sizes — such as for laboratory scale production.
About Glatt Ingenieurtechnik: Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH plans and carries out international projects from the enlargement or modernization of existing production facilities to the construction of whole new factories. In doing so, the company combines professional engineering with sound technical know-how derived from patented process technologies it has developed itself, such as powder synthesis with APPtec and fluidized and spouted bed methods for granulation and coating processes. The focus of the projects is on processes in the field of particle design and particle engineering for the development, optimization, functionalization and production of powder and bulk goods such as granulates and pellets for food, feed, chemicals and fine chemicals and processes for the manufacture of biotechnological and chemical active ingredients for sterile and non-sterile dosage forms of drugs. Glatt Ingenieurtechnik GmbH has its headquarters in Weimar. Affiliates are located in Wiesbaden and Dresden, Switzerland, Russia, India and the USA. As an integral part of the international Glatt Group, Glatt Ingenieurtechnik can draw on a global network of some 3,000 employees. Numerous agencies exist worldwide as contacts for the full range of goods and services. You will find more information at: www.glatt.com

FreshSafe PET® from KHS: Association of Plastic Recyclers recognizes recyclability achievement

• Technology combines product protection with recyclability
• Better barrier properties than composite materials
• Growing demand for clean recycling systems for PET bottles

Dortmund/Hamburg, March 26, 2019 – The public demand for more sustainability is growing stronger. As a result the industry is increasingly concentrating on the recyclability of PET bottles. However, this type of packaging often contains composite materials which considerably hinder simple, pure-grade recycling. KHS’ FreshSafe PET® technology offers the beverage and food industries a unique alternative. A wafer-thin protective layer of chemically pure glass on the inside wall of the PET container combines product protection with full bottle-to-bottle recycling. This has now been officially acknowledged by North America’s Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR): this recognizes PET bottles coated using Plasmax barrier technology as meeting or exceeding APR’s most stringent Critical Guidance criteria for recyclability.
“Plastics are being subjected to increasingly critical questioning. People want more sustainable solutions from the industry,” says Jon Elward, head of Plastic Packaging at KHS USA, Inc. “The demand for clean recycling systems in particular is steadily gaining in significance.” The gradual ousting of mixed material PET bottles which are hard to recycle is progressively opening up the market to packaging systems which are easy to recycle. In this context KHS’ FreshSafe PET© technology provides a suitable alternative and has now been classified as meeting APR’s [1] most stringent Critical Guidance criteria for recycling. The wafer-thin glass coating applied to the inside wall of the bottle is washed off during the recycling process, producing pure PET. “We’ve fully satisfied the strict specifications and critical demands of the recognition process,” states Elward. “This again proves that FreshSafe PET® is the only sustainable technology on the market and a reference for the recyclability of PET bottles without composite materials.” With it sensitive products such as juice, wine, sauce and liquid food are protected from oxidation and carbonated beverages from carbon dioxide loss. Furthermore, compared to standard composite materials the coating process provides a much better barrier quality and ensures much longer product shelf lives.

APR aims to improve recycling quality of PET bottles
“This technology considerably facilitates recycling and at the same time improves the barrier properties of PET bottles,” confirms Steve Alexander, executive director of the APR. Through its recognition program the organization aims to improve the recycling quality of plastic bottles. According to Elward, interest among bottlers is growing in the system which has already been tried and tested many times over on the market. “There is an increasing demand for sustainable packaging.” With the recognition issued by the APR bottlers and recyclers can be more confident the technology supports the American PET recycling market. “This is a significant step in further establishing this technology,” Elward believes.

The EPBP also gives FreshSafe PET® top marks. In its design guidelines the platform rates the materials used with regard to their recyclability using a traffic light system. The SiOx coating is described as being the only fully compatible barrier technology.

KHS calculates individual TCO
Beverage producers of course incur additional overheads when they invest in FreshSafe PET© yet these quickly pay off as the overall operating costs at the plant are reduced. When they use this system bottlers can switch to less expensive standard PET preforms, relieving them of the obligation to source preforms from a specific manufacturer. KHS offers plant operators an individual consideration of the total costs accrued when using its barrier coating technology. “Measured against the huge benefit of additional product protection and longer product shelf lives in particular, the costs per bottle are actually lower than when conventional composite materials are used,” smiles Elward.

Crisp Sensation Holding S.A
Microwaveable crumb-coated snacks with perfect crunch
Crisp Sensation files patent for improved moisture control

Geneva / Switzerland, March 2019 – Crisp Sensation, global food coating system expert, has developed snack coatings that promise perfect, crispy results. With its latest innovation, the company will soon enable manufacturers to develop microwaveable crumb-coated snacks. The technical breakthrough, which has been highly anticipated by the market, all comes down to moisture control: Even if the product is kept in a freezer for up to six months, it will still retain a crispy coating and succulent core when cooked in the microwave. As with all Crisp Sensation coatings, they are also suitable for other preparation methods such as oven, airfryer, Merrychef and Turbochef.

Addressing fast-paced consumers who are always on the go and demand quick and tasty snack options, products with Crisp Sensation coatings fit the bill perfectly. The coating system is suitable for a large variety of products that can be crumb coated, including chicken, cheese and even sweet fillings. Now the company has filed a patent for the coating system which guarantees that even products that have been kept in a freezer for months will still taste great, and remain crispy on the outside.

The patent-pending technology will enable snack manufacturers to create a wide array of imaginative snacking options, all of which can be microwaved without a crisping or grill function, and are ready to eat in just 1-2 minutes. Suitable not only for households, but also for the out-of-home market – including kiosks, food trucks and service stations – snack manufacturers can appeal to completely new markets with products that are perfect in both taste and texture.

Supported by new intellectual property on improved moisture control, Crisp Sensation will soon enable manufacturers to develop a completely new generation of crumb-coated snacks. The company has a long history of filing patents on coating systems, with multiple patents already granted. Some of the most important developments have been innovative moisture barriers and water binding technologies. For creating diversity and tailored products, crumbs with specific characteristics and designs are available for all applications and requirements. These patented functional crumbs display special porosities, thickness and crumb shapes.

Recently, Crisp Sensation has launched ZeroFry, an innovation that enables manufacturers to produce crispy crumb coated snacks for oven or airfryer without the need for pre-frying or deep-frying. The ZeroFry coatings allow for a fat reduction of 50 per cent and a considerable reduction in calories, too.

Schur Flexibles Group
Schur Flexibles Group combines sustainability with excellent performance and safe food ideas and presents new sustainable packaging solutions for meat, poultry and processed meat productsat IFFA 2019
Modern packaging solutions combined with sustainability and environment and climateprotection
Wiener Neudorf, 28.03.2019 – The Schur Flexibles Group, specialist for flexible packaging solutions, has presented a pioneering sustainability strategy along the principle guidelines of "rethink". The implementation of the strategy is guided by the newly developed 5R program, which is based on the five pillars Responsibility, Recycling, Replace, Reduction and Renewal. At IFFA 2019 the group, which isspecialised on sustainable packaging,will be showcasing its range of innovative packaging options, which are either recyclable, made of renewable raw materials or extremely reduced regarding use of resources and will be available to advise on developing tailor-made solutions.
Sustainable solutionsalready part of the portfolio
Numerous products from the Schur Flexibles range already contribute to sustainable resource managementand particularly support the presentation and protection as well as the reliable extension of the shelf life of meat and poultry products.
Many Schur Flexibles products are made of mono materials or of materials from the same group of plastics and are therefore recyclable.An example for that is the group of polyolefins, which includes the plastics polyethylene (PE) and polypropylene (PP). This also enables the recyclability (country-specific) of product combinations from the Schur Flexibles portfolio such as SkinFreshTop combined with C-base bottom films (PP), FlexiFlow(re) or TopGuard(re) for PP trays and cups.
A special packaging solution is the reclosable FlexiClose(re) packaging concept. Used in conjunction with Schur Flexibles C-base PP bottom film, FlexiClose(re) provides a completely recyclable, high barrier, reclosure solution. What makes FlexiClose(re) so innovative is the polyolefin-based lidding film which, when used in combination with
C-base, forms a recyclable system. In recognition of its highly innovative qualities, FlexiClose(re) was recently awarded the German Packaging Award for Sustainability as well as the Gold Award.
The development of extremely thin films is another important path on the way to more sustainability. They offer material savings of between 20 and 25 per cent and reduce the amount of resources required for storage and transportation, thus leading to a more efficient use of resources all along the value chain. The Schur Flexibles range of innovative and high performing products for meat and poultry products includes the VACUshrink FM40 film and BarrierTop X 35 which are amongst the thinnest in the market. In addition, Schur Flexibles has developed the flexible and extremely transparent thermoforming VACUflex film.
Schur Flexibles has also increased the use of renewable raw materials such as paper and fibre materials. This includes DanaFibrebottom films for thermoforming applicationsthat utilise paper or fibre instead of polymers. PE from renewable resources (bioethanol) and sugar-based films are further examples of this.
High performing solutions for sensitive food products
Solutions by Schur Flexibles are always about boosting performance, especially for the highly sensitive products in the meat industry. Plastic as a material for vacuum or MAP packaging is still indispensable withincurrent technological standards. Therefore, Schur Flexibles offersproducts that reduce the use of raw materials, utilise renewable materials and improve recyclability, without sacrificing product protection, hygiene or handling. Whether it is packaging optimised for recycling, with reduced material consumption or based on materials from renewable resources, Schur Flexibles packaging provides reliable sealing, excellent peelability, reclosability, antifog, high levels of transparency and tear resistance.
Schur Flexibles packaging provides reliable sealing, excellent peelability, reclosability, antifog, high levels of transparency andtear resistance. Furthermore, a large number of print options – gravure, flexo, offset and digital print – are available.In order to be admitted to the Schur Flexibles range of packaging, all sustainable products must also guarantee these qualities.
This shows that sophisticated packaging solutions and maximum product safety and conveniencecan be combined with greater sustainability. The innovative materials pioneered by Schur Flexibles are ideal for the packaging of sensitive products such as meat and poultry, processed meat and others.
Gaining point-of-sale advantageswith sustainable packaging
Utilising the modern, flexible and resource-saving packaging solutions offered by Schur Flexibles not only protects the environment but also ensures a competitive advantage at the point of sale. Sustainability is a criterion that increasingly influences consumers when they decide whether to buy a product or not. Therefore, the ability to advertise products by highlighting the sustainability of their packaging leads to significant market advantages.
