Process optimisation is often an important part of an organisation’s business operations. It ensures that processes are made more efficient, which must ultimately result in fewer lost materials, less waste, and reduced energy consumption. With regard to packaging development and the reduction of the packaging’s environmental impact, you can explore the following measures:
Reduced material use with better processes
Modern machinery and processes use sensors that can track important process parameters during production. The computer that runs the process can monitor settings in real time and make adjustments if necessary. This ensures that processes are smoother, which reduces the mechanical strain on packaging materials. The process can also immediately react to small variations in the properties of the packaging material. This presents opportunities for reduced material use and the use of renewable materials, monomaterials, or materials made from recyclate, since these materials are sometimes more vulnerable than virgin materials.
