This confirms the pre-eminence of Italian printers at an international level, distinguished by expertise (the competitions of the associations of the FTA circuit evaluate the quality of the candidate works, ed).

Officialized at the end of October 2017, the winners’ ranking was disclosed at the end of the year celebrations at the Assografici and Atif headquarters where Sante Conselvan, as President of FTA Europe, celebrated the winners at the presence of the sector press and read the statement written by the President of the Brazilian federation, Sergio Vai.

« The Brazilian competition – explained Conselvan for the occasion – gave life to an international edition and asked FTA Europe to nominate some excellent works from our part of the world. The victory of the Italians, who dominate the ranking, fills us with pride confirming the pre-eminent role of our industry in the world ».

Conai: One thing led to another. Incoming cuts on Conai tax

Conai is studying a cut of the single contribution (188 € / tonne) to be paid for the consumption and use of packaging made of plastics. More likely a first contribution diversification will be applied by next October to those who will use packaging films made up of “most recyclable” structures.

A technical meeting is opened at the National Consortium of packaging, which promote and reward companies that will make more eco-friendly choices to pack products.

The recyclability of your product will allow you to save money and help the planet.

Ethics and sustainability: films always more recyclable

There is not only the fourth industrial revolution in action, rather we must point out that this change is also dictated by the change of consumer species.As well as the forth revolution, today many changes can be related to the transformation of consumers.

In this case Bioplast research is orientated towards a diversification of products, always more eco-friendly. Final consumers are careful concerning the raw materials used, the reputation of producer, the brand and the sustainability. It is no longer the time when a brand owner can say “I impose this product on the market”.Consumers are very attentive to so many dynamics such as the judgments of hundreds of influencers who evaluate, criticize and approve or bust a product, and this affects consumer purchasing choices.

We, let’s do our part. We are producing more and more films with structures suitable for the recyclability of the casing once used, by using more sustainable raw materials.

New opa and pet free films

The search of new eco-friendly products never ends. Bioplast has included in its range “fresh pasta” films, the so-called “OPA FREE” and “PET FREE” films. The development of those new laminates allows the plastic recyclability and they are appropriate for many films which are stressed by thermal cycles with an elevate barrier of oxygen and water vapour , and they guarantee the biggest resistance to pricking.

In the substance we have removed from fresh pasta packaging, polyamides and polyester because they are raw materials which don’t allow the recyclability of pack.

Today, more and more pasta producers are opting for environmental sustainability. It is a duty towards future generations and, in the meantime, it has economics advantages.

Ask for much information to our Sales Department.
