This question has become more and more important. Customerts asked us about it, but also within our own company, we started to raise questions about plastic waste. What could our role be in this, as a company that transports many containers of plastic around the world. What are our own responsibilities. We decided to try and answer those questions.
In the past months we have been doing research about sustainability of packaging materials. Our intern Remko de Haan has done most of the work and was led by Matthijs van Oostrum. We have done research about bio-based materials, reducing plastic use / waste by down gauging materials, recycling, circular economy etc etc.
During the research our interest has grown and the basics have become clear to us. However the solution is not simple and technological development is not good enough yet. But we have seen more and more possibilities and opportunities. We can seperate real improvements from solutions that sound sustainable, but in reality do not contribute.
We have not found the holy grail of sustainable packaging yet, but we have found many ways to improve in various steps of the supply chain and the lifecycle of products.
Are you interested to see the results of our research and if they impact your field of work too? Feel free to contact us, We love to share our knowledge.
