In the final stretch before the packaging event of the year opens in Monaco, we’ve shortlisted just a few of the innovations not to be missed at Luxe Pack, which opens on September 30th.
Awantys will launch Awyverde, a new "recyclable and biodegradable" material destined for primary packaging applications and composed of two-thirds cellulose and one-third mineral content. The manufacturer explains that this solution is considerably more cost efficient than traditional bio-plastics.
