PACKAGING INNOVATIONS: Sirane MD giving seminar… and also joining the Big Carbon Debate

Siirane MD Simon Balderson is among the seminar speakers at Packaging Innovations

SIRANE MD Simon Balderson will be giving a seminar at Packaging Innovations 2020… and has also been asked to join the panel for the Big Carbon Debate.

Simon will be giving a seminar in the Eco-Pack Theatre, on the topic of “Plastic food packaging: a tough act to follow. Where can plastic packaging realistically be removed from the supply chain, and what’s being done to develop solutions not currently available? The seminar is Thursday, February 27 at 1.35pm.

And at 2pm he will join the Big Carbon Debate – “this house believes that we will fail to meet net-zero carbon targets, if we ban plastic packaging”.

Plastic-free packaging – and packaging that can easily be recycled – forms a key component of our ever-expanding Earth Packaging range.

Sirane’s Earth Packaging range includes our award-winning plastic-free packaging ‘Earthpouch’ – a paper-based solution with a heat-sealable coating, which is preformed into a stand-up pouch, along with a flow-wrap film Earthfilm.

Both products are available in standard, barrier and high barrier.

We’re also about to release to the market the Earthwedge – a plastic-free sandwich pack which is a replacement for PE-coated and laminated boards.

“Earthwedge is a sandwich pack, with a window, which gives the required barrier, but which is completely free of plastic,” added Simon Balderson, “Earthwedge will remove a lot of unnecessary plastic from supermarket shelves.”  

Sirane is an innovative food packaging development-to-manufacture company, with expertise in absorbency and material science. Specialisms include bags and pouches, absorbent products, shelf-life extension and dual-ovenable products.

Packaging Innovations runs at the NEC, Birmingham, from February 26-27. Our stand at the show is L30 – right next to the popular Eco-Pack Theatre.
