Tue1.3 The Impact of Bisphenol A (BPA) on Proposition 65 for Aerosol Can Coatings
Dr. Robyn McMillan, Global market segment manager for Monobloc Aerosol and Tubes, PPG’s Packaging Coatings, USA

In May of 2015, Bisphenol A (BPA) was added to the Proposition 65 list in California which will require notification of use in May of 2016. BPA is a primary building block for the epoxy polymers used in the majority of can coatings for the last thirty years and today. This change in California regulation has driven many food and beverage brand owners to convert or plan for conversion to Bis-phenol A Non-Intent (BPA-NI) coatings on a broad scale in the United States today. In this presentation we will review the impact of BPA on the California Proposition 65 list and discuss several BPA-NI coating alternatives available for use in aerosol packaging today.

Tue3.1 The Role of Packaging in Sustainable Development
Co-chair: Raphael AURAS, School of Packaging, Michigan State University, US

Packaging systems can be used as a tool for sustainable development. However, consumers mostly associate packaging with the amount of waste created at its end of life cycle, and not with its main functions, containment, protection and communication. Creation of optimal packaging systems not only preserves resources, but it also can reduce the overall environmental footprint (EFP) of the entire product/package system. The EFP of product/packaging systems will be discussed using life cycle assessment (LCA) methodology. The presentation will focus on the end of life scenario of packaging systems and on reducing the overall EFP of the product/package system.

Rafael Auras is an Associate Professor with the School of Packaging at Michigan State University. Rafael leads a research group of undergraduate and graduate students interested in mass transfer in polymers, biodegradable and compostable polymers, life cycle assessment, packaging waste, and sustainable packaging systems. He has conducted research projects for Fortune 500 companies and government sponsored research projects.

Shridhar GOPALAN, PhD, Manager for Corporate R&D dlhBOWLES Inc., USA

For decades, mechanical break-up (MBU) inserts have been widely used in aerosols to generate spray patterns and improve distribution of products but, over the years, there has been little innovation in insert/nozzle technology for consumer packaged goods. The most widely used technology is the Swirl MBU, and common knowledge has supported its proliferation. However, Swirl MBUs have inherent limitations of slow spray development, non-uniform distribution, round patterns and fine drops. We have developed a proprietary Fluidic MBU which produces a more uniform, fast developing, slightly coarser droplet and targeted pattern for those more difficult to spray applications or formulations. Our Fluidic MBU technology open doors for advances in the consumer spray experience and widens the design space for manufacturers when it comes to packaging and formulation. They also help reduce propellants, required can pressures and VOC levels.

Dr. Gopalan is the Manager for Corporate R&D at dlhBOWLES Inc. He has devoted his career to researching and applying the fundamentals of fluid mechanics to multiple applications through 8 years in hydrodynamics research for Office of Naval Research and NSF to 13 years of fluidic design and development for automotive and consumer industries, where he has been listed as an inventor on more than 25 patents. With a number of published papers and countless hours of research Shridhar is a recognized leader in fluidic nozzle design and development. He obtained his undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Mumbai and later earned his PhD from Johns Hopkins University.

Wed1.5 Continuous dispensing technology with no gas and its applications
Gadi HAR-SHAI, CEO and CTO, Greenspense Ltd, Israel

Continuous dispensing is the most convenient and efficient way to provide a positive consumer experience for spraying liquids and dispensing viscous materials. Today, continuous dispensing requires mixing the product with propellants, which restricts package designs and materials, increases shipping and handling costs, and complicates product formulation.

GreenSpense’s Eco-sleeve™ technology eliminates the need for propellants in continuous dispensing, while providing the same positive consumer experience as today. The technology allows packaging designs in any shape and material including plastics, cardboard, and biodegradable materials. With Eco-sleeve™ a wide range of industries such as personal and home care products, technical, food, and pharma can benefit from advantages including green chemistry and small package footprint, all using standard filling equipment.

Gadi has over 20 years of experience in the high-tech industry; managed technical organizations and complex projects, including setting up global customer support organizations (Stratasys, Kodak, Orbotech), product development (Lamina Technologies, Iscar), and business development (NanoReady); M.A., Management, Lesley University, Massachusetts USA; B.Sc, Engineering, Technion Israel .Institute of Technology.

12:00 – 1:15 Workshop "INNOVATION, CREATIVITY and DESIGN" ROOM "B"
WS_Tue1 How long will you be able to claim you're innovative without proving it ?
Pr Denis CAVALLUCCI, Professor in Engineering of Innovation, Deputy Director of Design Engineering Lab. (LGéCo - EA3938), INSA de Strasbourg, France

The recent start of ISO/TC 279, involving 34 countries including the USA, is problematical. It presupposes the impending introduction of standards on innovation, which will force enterprises not only to prove they have set up reliable innovation production processes but also that they have adopted, in this respect, a logic of continuous improvement. Have you ever asked yourself the question? What will I say to a client who questions me about the means of measuring my innovation and the proof I can provide to show my processes are in place, structured and efficient? May I reassure you right away. If you quote the ratio of patents filed per R&D engineer per annum or the reinvestment of a percentage of sales in R&D, that will no longer suffice.

This workshop is designed to provide information about forthcoming standards on this subject, discuss a few « good practices » already established by the pioneers of systematic innovation and clearly identify the challenges awaiting industry in this area by 2020.

Co-Chair: Hae Chang GEA,
Professor, Mary W. Raisler Distinguished Teaching Chair,
Director and Program Chair, Packaging Engineering Program,
Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering,
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, USA

Sustainable packaging has been one of the top priorities in packaging industries in recent years. One common tools for evaluating the environmental impact of packages is the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). Because the LCA analyzes environmental impacts based on multiple environmental indicators, sustainability ranking of packages may be changed if a different environmental indicator is used. In this presentation, examples of sustainable packaging will be presented and a decision making framework based on the analysis results of the LCA will be introduced in order to produce better sustainable packages.

Professor Hae Chang Gea received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, in 1993. He is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Rutgers University.

He has served in the editorial board of many international journals and organizations. His research interests are design optimization, analysis and design with uncertainty.

Tue1.3 How to create brand-enhancing packaging using virtual tools
Dan DURHAM , Director global accounts , Plastic Technologies Inc. (PTI), Holland, Ohio

Brand owners are continuously trying to bring products to market using shelf-differentiating containers. However, plastic container manufacturing can be complex, which means what looks beautiful on a computer screen or 3D model may not be feasible to produce in commercial quantities. That’s where virtual tools and knowledge of plastic packaging production can make a difference between success or failure for your product.

Virtual tools, backed by process expertise, can help identify both performance flaws and production headaches. This helps take concepts, convert them to viable production ready designs, provide a degree of confidence that the package can be manufactured, as well as meet stringent performance parameters.

Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) is recognized worldwide as the preferred source for preform and package design, package development, rapid prototyping, pre-production prototyping, and material evaluation engineering for the plastic packaging industry.

Since joining PTI in 1991, Durham has amassed significant PET knowledge—from packaging and tooling design to injection and blow molding processing. He currently focuses his efforts on helping multinational brand owners successfully navigate packaging projects from concept to commercialization. His material expertise includes other traditional resins such as PP and HDPE, as well as PLA and other biopolymers. In 2002, Durham helped found, and became general manager of, Preform Technologies, LLC, a PTI sister company. Preform Technologies is known for its ability to produce technically challenging, smaller volume preforms and containers for food, beverage and personal care applications. Prior to coming to PTI, Durham worked at TriTech Systems, a closure and package development company in Maumee, OH. Durham has a bachelor of science in physics from the University of Toledo. He is also a member of the International Society of Beverage Technologists and the Society of Plastics Engineers.

Tue1.4 Innovation vs. Renovation in Package Design
Alexander KWAPIS, Creative Director, Fusion Packaging, USA

When it comes to your brand, what does innovation mean to you? Is it being the first to bring a new idea to market at a high cost, or understanding how to make incremental adjustments with quicker speed to market that makes your products more attainable?

Innovation is a “buzz word” in design often used inaccurately. True innovation combines novelty with a marketable product, and disrupts the industry by introducing newness and added value that doesn’t exist elsewhere. True innovations come about every decade or so – including the World Wide Web, Apple iPhone, and airless pump technology in packaging – and address a need that the market may not have been aware of until that solution is provided. While these innovations are certainly memorable, they are always high-risk/high-reward and require considerable financial investment and human capital to bring ideas to life over time in an evolutionary manner.

Renovation, on the other hand, is an alternative approach to design that brings newness coupled with proven ideas or technology that is readily available. It is taking a concept that has already been introduced and accepted and asking, “How can we make this better?” At Fusion Packaging, we believe renovation is just as (if not more) important as disruptive innovation. This framework has driven many of our design projects over the past year, including the launch of our Shine FX laminate tubes and Direct Effect airless applicators – two examples of how Fusion improves upon existing design constructs to bring new functional, sensorial and decorative packaging advancements to the marketplace.

Alexander KWAPIS is the Creative Director at Fusion Packaging, a global leader in the design and manufacturing of luxury packaging for the beauty industry. As Creative Director, Kwapis plays an integral role in driving innovation for the company. He approaches new projects with a childlike curiosity balanced with a deep technical knowledge, which allows him to think creatively while also understanding the realities of manufacturing. His rich industrial design experience, paired with an intrinsic passion for understanding the human element of packaging, have made him a vital element of Fusion’s success. He has pioneered several design projects that received industry awards and accolades, including the International Packaging Design Award (2013), Industry of Packaging Professionals’ (IoPP) AmeriStar awards (2015, 2014 and 2011), and the premier WorldStar packaging design award (2012). Before joining Fusion Packaging in 2010, Kwapis served as an Industrial Designer for Mary Kay, and also as Vice Chairman of the Industrial Designers Society of America’s (IDSA) Dallas-Fort Worth chapter. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Industrial Design from Columbus College of Art and Design, whereafter he led the graphic design department at Anchor Hocking Company, and co-founded NU Research + Design. Kwapis currently resides in Dallas, Texas, where he divides his time between Fusion’s Dallas headquarters, East Coast and West Coast offices.

Tue1.6 Engage Consumers with Sensory Materials
Kyle PRICE, Senior Product Specialist, Specialty Engineered Materials, PolyOne, USA

    Exposure to over 3,000 ads each day has created information overload for consumers and has left brands looking for new ways to connect with consumers
    Brands have begun turning to more subtle triggers that engage consumers through sensory experiences
    With studies showing the impact packaging has on buying behavior, a good starting place for sensory branding strategy is the selection of packaging materials
    PolyOne’s Gravi-Tech material is a sensory stimulating formulation that conveys luxury through its sensation of weight, aesthetics and deep pitch when set on a surface
    Research has shown that the sensation of weight can increase a consumer’s perception of importance and value by up to 25%
    The era of sensory branding is here, 40% of Fortune 500 brands will have a sensory branding strategy by 2020
    It’s time to look at your packaging as an avenue for re-engaging consumers through their most basic instincts

Tue1.7 How to anticipate web and industry 4.0 evolutions to imagine and develop engaging luxury packaged products?
Anne-Laure BULLIFFON, M. Sc., Fondatrice et directrice Projets, Profil'Pack Inc., Montréal, Canada

Since the early 1990s, the Internet is evolving fast, from basic publishing to global social interaction with challenging adaptation to a fast-paced interconnected environment. «Nomo phobia», a contraction of «no mobile phone phobia » is a behaviour phenomenon inherited from the web 2.0, which is spreading gradually to the new generations. So-called «Millennial» and «Digital Native», consumers born from 1995 and 2015 are already fully digitally intertwined into everything they do. Even the factories are living a cyber revolution that is substituting mass production by a large-scale customized production without additional costs or time. According to the experts, the web 4.0 will be the Internet of ultra intelligent electronic agent, next generation of the Internet of Things (IoT). And it is coming faster than the last three iterations. Knowing these inevitable and global changes, what are the expectations and desires of «Millennial» and «Digital Native» toward the luxury brand goods? What are the general packaging-related technological advancements opportunities and area of development? How the packaging development team should adapt to imagine and develop engaging luxury packaged and smart goods? Finally, we will present the result of the Design Tank 2025 Experiment.

Anne-Laure Bulliffon is the founder of Profil’Pack Inc. a Montreal-based consultancy firm dedicated to bring agility, confidence and autonomy to the CPG companies to launch successful market-leading products.

12:00 – 1:15 Workshop "INNOVATION, CREATIVITY and DESIGN" ROOM "B"
WS_Tue1 How long will you be able to claim you're innovative without proving it ?
Pr Denis CAVALLUCCI, Professor in Engineering of Innovation, Deputy Director of Design Engineering Lab. (LGéCo - EA3938), INSA de Strasbourg, France

The recent start of ISO/TC 279, involving 34 countries including the USA, is problematical. It presupposes the impending introduction of standards on innovation, which will force enterprises not only to prove they have set up reliable innovation production processes but also that they have adopted, in this respect, a logic of continuous improvement. Have you ever asked yourself the question? What will I say to a client who questions me about the means of measuring my innovation and the proof I can provide to show my processes are in place, structured and efficient? May I reassure you right away. If you quote the ratio of patents filed per R&D engineer per annum or the reinvestment of a percentage of sales in R&D, that will no longer suffice.

This workshop is designed to provide information about forthcoming standards on this subject, discuss a few « good practices » already established by the pioneers of systematic innovation and clearly identify the challenges awaiting industry in this area by 2020.

Tue2.2 Design, Mockup, Prototyping & 3D printing
Jeremiah ANDRAN, Innovations Manager, Stölzle Glass Group

With the rapid development in prototyping technology, glass packaging companies such as Stoelzle can only benefit from the ability to create quick 3D mock-ups to troubleshoot possible issues/options before it becomes a problem.

Examples of this are:

    Analysing texture/engraving or text on a bottle by creating a partial 3D print at a 1:1 scale.
    Giving accurate representations of print and label areas.
    Producing multiple options or bottle surfaces for badge application.
    Creating caps/finishes and fittings to give a better understanding of what a complete bottle will look like, also helps with secondary packaging.
    Customers are able to make quick decisions on site with a prototype model in hand.
    Being able to model and render a bottle allows the customer to skip the “design agency” stage, saving them cost and time with a design that will actually work in glass.
    Production could benefit by making bespoke tooling for machinery in order to achieve better efficiencies.
    Helps with the innovation culture.

These are just a few of the examples and reasoning behind 3D modelling, creating mock-ups and 3D printing. If you do need more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Jeremiah has a National Diploma and a Bahons degree in 3D Design. He worked has freelance Innovation Designer for automative tuning parts during 4 years. He is now Creative Designer / Innovation developer for Stoelzle Flaconnage LTD for 3 years.

Tue2.6 Decoration as the path to personalization
Bruno SAVAGE, COO, Seram America, USA

Our thinking is that the experience of the perfume will become more and more personal and unique to each consumer – especially with regard to the personalization of perfume.

A new generation, the millennials, will influence the markets in the years to come; bringing with it a new set of expectations.

Digital technology will play a role in the experience (see second topic) and undoubtedly a personalization of the perfume itself will accompany the expanded offering of flankers as seen in recent years. Anything that will render the perfume unique in order to create a moment: an interesting experience for a generation that ‘’has already seen it all’’; the decoration / accessorization will be an important path to personalization (the decorative accessory will be among the easiest and most economical to personalize) by using all the elements that we can decorate / finalize in-store (a trend that is already taking place on the high-end markets which is sure to expand across all sectors) and thereafter to apply directly onto the bottle / box (metal plaques, fabric appliques, plastics, pendants which can be engraved at the point of purchase online or in-store), or reusable versions / promotional objects that the client can use on a daily basis (bracelets, jewelry, keychains, etc. – attached hereto two examples of customizable bracelets currently in stores).
