Due to popular demand The Australian Institute of Packaging's (AIP) Introduction to Sustainable Packaging Design half-day training course will be heading back to New Zealand on the 17th of July. The training will start off with a tour of the Visy Recycling Materials Recycling Facility (MRF) and then head into the classroom for hands-on interactive training.
Course: Introduction to Sustainable Packaging Design
Date: Wednesday 17 July, 2019
Time: 9am - 3.30pm
Location: Visy Recycling New Zealand, 29 Victoria Street, Onehunga, Auckland
The course will provide attendees a better understanding of the practical guidelines and criteria needed to design and develop sustainable packaging including the Sustainability Hierarchy of Reduce, Reuse then Recycle and the Circular Economy approach to packaging and the environment.
Discussions will also cover Plastic, Glass and Metal packaging and their impact on the environment and whether the use of non-renewable resources, plant-based bioplastics, compostable and recycled materials and various tools can assist their business to understand the full life of packaging. This will involve the impact of 'Food or Product Waste'.
As part of the course, attendees will visit a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) to expose participants to the realities of a working MRF facilities, their equipment, limitation and material handling issues. The participants will get an understanding of what is and is not separated out for possible recycling, and why. This is followed by understanding the next stage of the recycling process after the MRF (i.e. the current five material beneficiation processes).
