From sustainable product design to close-loop


To demonstrate Dow’s recyclable packaging design and its achievement of closing the loop, Tony Yang, End Use Marketing Manager and Food & Specialty Packaging Market Development Manager for Greater China, Dow Packaging and Specialty Plastics, introduced some product examples in his presentation. 


Dow’s INNATE TF80 biaxially oriented PE resin, with a unique molecular structure design, can be used to produce TF-BOPE film with a stretching ratio of 5x9 on an industrial BOPP line. It is recyclable and can replace BOPA, BOPP or BOPET. Besides, Dow has also developed a circular business model with recycling solutions to reuse the packaging materials.

Mike Wang, Innovation & Development Manager, ALBEA China CRP of ALBEA Group, introduced the company’s green innovations in cosmetic packaging. One of  the innovatiions is the redesigning screw cap of the hose where the diameter of the screw cap is shortened from 2.5cm to 1.33cm and. The thickness of the nozzle is also reduced from 450um to 350um, leading to a decrease in the use of plastics by 35%. 


ALBEA also reduces the use of plastics in packaging design, providing reusable and refillable packaging, using recyclable materials, and increasing the application of bio-based materials, he emphasized.

In his sharing, Zeng Song, Vice General Manager at Dongguan Bouteille Resources Management Co., Ltd., a branch of Guangdong INTOP industrial Holding Co., Ltd, analyzed the current challenge and opportunity for the Chinese recycling industry. 


He commented that the recycling policies are clear enough, but they lack financial motivation. In addition, some industry regulations for recycling have not been confirmed. There is still the problem of high input of plastic waste and low output of recyclates. He then called for more transparent packaging in the packaging industry in order to improve the social recycling system.
