Sirane's MD among keynote speakers at the New Plastic Economy virual conference

SIRANE MD Simon Balderson is among the speakers at a virtual conference on sustainable packaging – the New Plastic Economy.

The keynote address, which will be on the subject of ‘The Game Changers in Food Packaging’ is part of a packed agenda, with speakers including the European Commission, the Ellen Macarthur Foundation, and A Plastic Planet.

The conference has been organised in Turkey, and speakers also include Turkish representatives from companies such as Unilever and Nestle.

Simon Balderson, Sirane MD, said: “Sirane’s been working for a number of years now on finding sustainable packaging alternative where possible. However, within food packaging, because of the testing requirements of the packaging, a truly circular economy is more difficult. There is many more materials used, because they all have different properties, which makes recycling much more of a challenge.

“I will be talking about the challenges, and how companies like Sirane are working with different materials to overcome the challenges within the food industry. “

The New Plastic Economy virtual conference takes places on February 10. Simon’s keynote address will be delivered at 5.30pm (2.30pm UK time).

Sirane’s range of plastic-free packaging solutions includes our paper-based stand-up pouches, Earthpouch, and paper-based flow-wrap film Earthfilm. We also offer both compostable and paper-based absorbent pads, and products such as compostable cling-film compostable shrink-film for fresh produce and bio-films.

In addition, Sirane offers a range of board-based products, including our new recyclable sandwich skillet, Earthwedge. Many of our other board products, including cake boards, patisserie boards, pizza boards, etc, can be offered using eco-friendly coating which mean the products can be recycled after use.

We also have solutions for the horticultural market – such as our plastic-free Earthboard Tree-Guards, which can be used to protect saplings.
