On June 26, 2018, at 02:00 pm CEST (Central European Summer Time), the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) will hold a public webinar on the challenges for food packaging in the circular economy.

In May 2018, a peer-reviewed article on food packaging in the circular economy was published in the Journal of Cleaner Production (FPF reported). The authors from the Food Packaging Forum (FPF), Zurich, Switzerland, report on recycling of five types of commonly used food packaging, but also discuss reuse, reduction, and redesign as further measures supporting the aims of the circular economy. A special focus of the publication is on the safety of recycled materials, with particular attention being paid to typical contaminants.

Dr. Birgit Geueke of the FPF will present the paper’s background, methodology and key findings. The presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.

The webinar is free of charge and registration closes on June 26, 2018, at 01:00 pm CEST – spaces are limited. You will receive information for joining the webinar upon successful registration. The recording of the webinar will be made available after the event.

The webinar will be held using Skype for Business software. For optimum performance, we recommend installing this software (Windows download or Mac download), but the webinar can also be accessed via telephone or through an internet browser.
