Sustainable, rolled-edge tray from Cascades is designed for optimal rigidity, and no packaging equipment changes are required.

The sustainable packaging offerings of Cascades, based in Québec, Canada, expand with the launch of the recyclable Cascades Fresh Performa rPET rolled-edge tray. The 100% recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) food tray is compatible with existing high-speed packaging equipment.

A life-cycle assessment of the trays conducted by Groupe AGÉCO shows that greenhouse gas emissions are 69% lower when producing the new rPET trays vs. manufacturing virgin PET trays. rPET-Food-Tray – Biodegradable technology

In addition, the tray design enables minimal use of materials while ensuring ideal rigidity. Corner ribbing provides stiffness and minimizes the risk of warping.

The design also features rolled edges, which prevent film overwrap from tearing. This, in turn, helps prevent food waste and the need for rewrapping.

-BPF to explore biobased and biodegradable technology

The first speaker will be Amcor’s Marketing Director, Coffee, Pet Care and Speciality Trevor Vadis, who will provide an analysis of the current situation with bioplastics, predictions for the future, as well as exploring the impact of generation one and generation two bioploymers.

He will be followed by Mariagiovanna Vetere, director at NatureWorks, who will discuss the opportunities in bioplastics as well as reflecting on the current challenges facing the industry. This session will be followed by a presentation from Dr Rachael Rothman from the University of Sheffield, who will give a presentation on the LCA of plastics from non-fossil-based sources.

European Bioplastics Managing Director Hasso Von Pogrell will discuss the size of the bioplastics market, global production trends and land use. Dr Thomas Farmer from the University of York will explore the underlying principles for several pathways to bio-based terephthalic acid/esters and will suggest what he feels are the most promising options.  rPET-Food-Tray – Biodegradable technology

The final speaker will be Suez’s Technical Development Director – Recycling and Recovery UK Stuart Hayward-Higham, who will provide insights into dealing with bioplastics from a waste management company’s point of view, exploring the unique challenges and solutions.
