Discover Brightlands knowledge program on Empack 2022

The packaging industry continues to innovate. On 5, 6 and 7 April 2022 Trade Fair Empack brings together the top of the industry: from buyers to directors and technical managers to packaging managers. Brightlands Materials Centers program managers Circular Packaging, Harold Gankema and Caroli Buitenhuis will talk about the challenges around circular packaging on Wednesday April 6. 

Within the Brightlands Materials Center’s Circular Packaging program, we work on redesigning the polymers of multilayer packaging materials so that they become recyclable. Sealing and the barriers needed to properly package products play a crucial role in this process. Gankema’s presentation will provide insight into the challenges and possible solution routes.

Brightlands Materials Center takes part in the Brightlands knowledge program. The program includes innovative parties: Sabic, TNO, Avantium and Ekoplaza.
