Interactive panel discussion on release liner recycling at a previous edition of the FINAT Technical Seminar with companies Channeled Resources, UPM Raflatac, Reculiner, Avery Dennison, Cycle4Green, and Munksjö.
Set to take place from 4 – 6 March 2020 at the Crowne Plaza Barcelona Fira Center, FINAT’s Technical Seminar promises to provide participants a deeper understanding into label converting technologies
Spread over a day and a half, two plenary and two parallel sessions, 23 expert speakers will share their expertise on an array of topics. All designed to give an update on the latest status with regards to legislation, materials science, converting technology and innovation.
A large part of the meeting will be dedicated to the future of self-adhesive labelling. What impact will EU legislation and the Circular Economy have on the way self-adhesive labels are produced? What critical issues does the label industry face around food contact regulations, sustainability and recycling? How can we, as an industry, work together to proactively provide solutions to handle release liner or matrix by-products, and provide guidance on best practices in areas like UV curing for food packaging?
For those production or technical managers who have seen that digitalisation is continuously changing the way self-adhesive labels are produced, the session on ‘Technology and Business’ may be an eye-catcher. Performances, pros and cons of the various printing technologies will be explained in detail and compared with each other. Furthermore, a wider scenario of business models and related ROI programmes will give an insight into the economic consequences of certain technologies.
