Sustainable technologies for a better tomorrow

Packaging that is 100% recyclable or reusable and zero net carbon emissions: future goals that Sealed Air pursues by developing innovative, high-performance projects.

Sealed Air offers automated packaging solutions for a safe and efficient supply chain and high protection for valuable goods distributed worldwide, including e-commerce. Ipack-Ima 2022 is the ideal stage to showcase these solutions and the company’s technologies, which also intends to communicate to the market a business strategy increasingly focused on sustainability. Because Sealed Air not only wants to solve the challenges of packaging in the best possible way, but also to make the world a better place than it found it.

Productivity, innovation, sustainability

At the fair in Milan, the most recent developments in terms of materials will be presented, such as the SEALED AIR Brand AirCap® barrier bubble film, which, thanks to the technology adopted, offers lower bubble thickness and weight without compromising on protection.

Attention is also focussed on air cushion systems and automation that make it possible to increase productivity, minimizing downtime and material waste. In recent months, Sealed Air has made significant investments in paper-based protection and vacuum filling systems.

Not forgetting the I-Pack® system, which ensures high speed and can therefore have a significant impact in e-commerce, and the automatic shipping systems, film wrapping and bagging equipment under the AUTOBAG® brand, designed for high productivity packaging.

Finally, a reminder  that Sealed Air has expanded its offering for the food sector with the CRYOVAC® range of ready-to-recycle barrier films and bags.

Future goals.

Sealed Air is therefore developing packaging solutions that maximize product protection, resource efficiency and material circularity, with an ambitious sustainability goal set for 2025: 100% recyclable or reusable packaging solutions, and for plastics, an average recycled content of 50%, of which at least 60% will be post-consumer recycled. This is an important milestone ahead of a further challenging goal for the company: to achieve zero net carbon emissions in global operations by 2040.
