Introduction: Hester Klein Lankhorst, Director and Karen van de Stadt, Packaging Expert, KIDV, Netherland
Due to an unique set of factors; close proximity of all necessary (international) players in the plastic recycling chain, a well-developed chemical industry, R&D packaging centres, multi-faceted collection systems and a broad range of research institutes (eg Wageningen University), The Netherlands is a pilot environment/laboratory for innovation and new developments. This has resulted in many different developments concerning the use of both biobased materials and (post-consumer) recycled content.
In this masterclass the Netherlands Institute for Sustainable Packaging (KIDV) will help you to take (further) steps in the use of new packaging materials in order to respond to the goals of the European Closing the loop package. What are the do’s and don’ts when using biobased materials, what are the possibilities and conditions in the use of (post-consumer) recycled material in packaging and what must be taken into account when exploring the possibilities of design for recycling in regard to multilayer packaging.
Hester Klein Lankhorst, Director and Karen van de Stadt, Packaging Expert, KIDV, Netherland
Hester Klein Lankhorst (Director) and Karen van de Stadt (Packaging expert), will give you an in depth view on the use of biobased material in packaging.

Subsequently the KIDV will take you to the subject of (post-consumer) recycled content in packaging. Showing the latest trends and developments and make the link with food safety and legislation and explore the possibilities of design for recycling in regard to multilayer packaging.

The minimization of plastic waste is a global challenge. Traditional bioplastics are mainly alleviating the problem by biodegradability relevant for food packaging applications. Paptic approaches the situation from a more holistic circular economy approach.
PAPTIC material is a combination of the renewability and recyclability of paper combined with usability of plastics. Paptic is a novel material innovation, that is renewable and recyclable. Importantly, the haptics appeal to consumers and invite to repeated use.
The presentation will also highlight the feedback received from a number of brand owner and retailer case studies.
