Industry evolution towards sustainability
At Plast Milano 2023, it was clear that sustainability is becoming the core of the plastics industry. New materials, compostable solutions and the circular economy were recurring themes and topics if discussion. From what we heard at the show, the next edition will focus even more on sustainability for the Italian market as a beacon for the rest of the world.
Italy, known as a pioneer in flexible packaging, demostrated its commitment to sustainability. An example of this was the production of compostable materials and the use of them for blowing bags used for samples. This marked a contrast to previous fairs, where conventional resins were commonly used.
