Greening is a strong breakthrough for flexible packaging (Part 2)

"calling for the green spring of flexible packaging"

it is often dangerous to make judgments and decisions on environmental issues based on common sense. Because people generally can not see all the links in the whole life cycle of a product (or service). The subjectivity and blindness of decision-making can be avoided only by persisting in investigating the total impact on the environment in all links of the whole life cycle

according to the definition of ISO, the internationally popular life cycle analysis method, China's plastic granulating machinery, is particularly important in the market, that is, a method to summarize and evaluate the potential impact of all inputs and outputs of a product (or service) system on the environment during its entire life cycle

"the green environmental protection of flexible packaging is a systematic project." Miss Liu, a comprehensive service company specializing in product certification consulting and management system certification consulting in Shanghai, said, "the environmental management system will help organizations systematically deal with environmental problems, and combine environmental protection with enterprise management, making it a part of the daily operation and business strategy of the enterprise."

according to the ISO14000 environmental management system certification requirements, after the enterprise has established the environmental management system, the relationship between different functional departments can be coordinated through management activity procedures, establishment of standardized documents and records and other measures. Good environmental policy and environmental management foundation can be established; Identify and control major environmental factors and impacts; It can identify the gap between the requirements of relevant environmental laws and regulations and the current situation. The training time enables operators and maintenance personnel to operate independently;; Reduce the environmental impact caused by pollution accidents or violations of laws and regulations; Establish the priority sequence of pollution prevention within the organization and strive to achieve the goal of pollution prevention; Improve the ability to monitor the environment and evaluate the efficiency of the system, including promoting the improvement and adjustment of the system to adapt to new and changing situations and requirements; There are many important business and environmental opportunities due to the improvement of the environment

"at present, although the domestic green packaging industry is developing rapidly, the production capacity can not meet the actual demand, which should be a very attractive industry for investors." Dongjinshi, deputy director of China Packaging Resources Comprehensive Utilization Committee, said, "at present, there are many new environmental protection technologies at home and abroad, especially in the plastic field. Whether investors can use these technologies to open new markets will determine whether the investment can succeed."

domestic case

story of flexo printing production line

behind the green packaging, there are many obstacles as the leader of the domestic aluminum profile industry. Such as high cost and low market acceptance. How to find a suitable entry point? What does green packaging mean to soft packaging enterprises

modern Nirvana

"the equipment is backward, the management is disordered, the production capacity is low, and the people are scattered... This is what I saw when I first came to the company." Said Huangxing, general manager of Hainan Modern Color Printing Co., Ltd

however, once we enter the factory, we have to be amazed by such changes as modern workshops, well-organized production workshops, and open-ended material management

"how to change the unfavorable situation? I thought for a long time at that time. If I continued to follow up the backward production mode, I would not be able to turn losses into profits, and even the enterprise would be overwhelmed. Therefore, I thought of the joint-stock reform and the new environmental protection scientific and technological route."

on this basis, modern color printing has redefined its business policy and marketing strategy, adhered to the green production line, paid attention to the analysis of the market and products, and put healthy and sustainable development in the first place. "This has not only enabled enterprises to get out of difficulties, but also made everyone full of hope."

Huang Xing is very calm when he speaks. He is calm after thousands of sails

the challenge of flexo printing

modern color indexing is not plain sailing in the process of promoting green production

flexo printing technology is widely used abroad, and its market share has reached more than 80%. However, in China, flexo printing and other environmentally friendly packaging technologies are not well accepted in the market

director Xu of modern color introduction said that flexographic printing adopts the principle of embossing. Compared with gravure printing with thick oil and heavy color, there are fewer and thinner inks, and the coloring degree is not very high. In terms of brightness, it is not as bright as gravure printing. For a long time, domestic flexible packaging consumers have been in the mindset of gravure printing with strong coloring and high brightness, so they are not quite able to accept this new environmentally friendly printing technology. Moreover, the development of flexo printing technology is also limited by the market itself. The environmental friendly inks required depend on imports for a long time, resulting in high costs, which is also a reason why flexo printing cannot be widely promoted

"we have also been puzzled, whether to insist on starting or stop production and wait-and-see? In the face of a market that is not very prosperous, the old road will not work, but how to find a new road? A difficult problem lies ahead of us." Director Xu said excitedly

after careful investigation and analysis, they found that to deal with many challenges brought by flexo printing production, it is a big problem to solve the localization of ink supply. Since we cannot rely entirely on imports, it is crucial to find alternatives. So they contacted some domestic ink manufacturers to develop new water-based inks for the expanded production of flexo printing. At the same time, actively explore new application fields of flexo printing, It provides the possibility for its future development... "In fact, environmental protection packaging technologies such as flexographic printing and solvent-free compounding have occupied a part of the packaging market. In the future, its prospects will be even more impressive. If we give up this big cake, we will suffer great losses. Today, when market development is difficult, we should seize this rare opportunity to make the development of the enterprise a higher level." Mr. Huang analyzed

after confirming the feasibility, Hainan modern color printing company introduced a complete set of equipment for the production of eight color flexographic benzene free and environment-friendly color printing flexible packaging from Germany, Italy, Japan, Belgium and other countries to carry out benzene free printing and solvent-free compounding on various plastic films, paper, aluminum foil and other flexible packaging, which not only conforms to the international environmental food hygiene standards, but also actively responds to the call for environmental protection packaging, The resulting environmental protection effect is beyond the reach of traditional print production

at present, the environmental protection products produced by the company have been widely used in the fields of flexible packaging such as food, medicine, clothing, maternal and child health care, cigarettes, etc. the whole production process is controlled by computer, and the "green environmental protection packaging" is truly penetrated into every product

breaking through the encirclement if we want to make non-standard samples

there is a long way to go, but it is not inorganic

facing the unfavorable situation of flexo printing technology market promotion, Hainan Hyundai is actively looking for new application fields. "Liquid milk packaging is a breakthrough," director Xu said, "We once conducted an experiment, using gravure printing and flexographic printing to pack liquid milk, and then invited some consumers to conduct on-site tests. The results were unexpected. The liquid milk printed by flexographic printing was widely praised. After analysis, the use of flexographic printing technology is relatively small in oil consumption, and the smell of the ink itself is not easy to mix into the product. It is a very suitable environmental protection for liquid milk that attaches great importance to taste Packaging. "

after many obstacles, modern color printing has come a long way. Perhaps, no one can give a positive answer to what green packaging means to soft packaging enterprises. But the experience of modern color printing to eat "crabs" tells us at least that there is no road without going. Bless tomorrow
