Cofresco Forum Pit Stop


End of life: closing the loop for household food packaging

The pursuit of a circular economy is gaining more and more momentum. So naturally, the end-of-life stage of food packaging is becoming increasingly important. The ambitions have been set high, and the goal is clearly defined. But what is the best way to achieve this?

The first Cofresco Forum Pit Stop will take an in-depth look at this topic. For three hours, experts will provide insights into the various aspects and implications of the end-of-life concept.

End of life: closing the loop for household food packaging

The first Cofresco Forum Pit Stop will take an in-depth look at this topic. For three hours, experts will provide insights into the various aspects and implications of the end-of-life concept. And they invite all participants to discuss the different ideas and currently available ways to implement the end-of-life concept for household food packaging.

Questions to be discussed include:

What are the end-of-life options? Where are the advantages of one or the other option? What does this mean for the choice of materials in terms of the circular economy? Which recycling processes are most suitable? How can recycling be further optimised? When does biodegradability make ecological sense? Are there already suitable materials for such applications? What are the future challenges, environmental benefits, and successful strategies for substituting fossil carbon with biomass, direct CO2 use and recycling?

There is much to discuss, although the benefits of end-of-life concepts are undeniable: the avoidance of waste and greenhouse gas emissions.
