Sustainable Packaging Demo Scheduled for Earth Day

PHILADELPHIA, PA | Rohm and Haas and Nordmeccanica will host daylong converting demonstrations for North American packaging converters on Wednesday, April 22, in conjunction with Earth Day 2009 celebrations. Demonstrations will take place at Nordmeccanica’s Edgewood (Long Island), NY, facility.

According to Giancarlo Caimmi, Nordmeccanica commercial director, “While sustainability for packaging has been addressed recently in several meetings worldwide, this will be the first time that a select group of companies have come together to demonstrate products and technologies to customers with actual production runs. The purpose is to deliver not just product information but primarily production solutions that are actionable today.”

Also on hand will be technical and commercial specialists from Innovia, provider of NatureFlex printing films; Rohm and Haas, supplier of adhesive solutions including Mor-Free solventless adhesives for laminating; and EarthFirst, producer of bio-polymer PLA (polylactic acid) films. Also attending to answer performance questions related to waterborne inks used in the demonstrations will be printing ink specialists from Sun Chemical, Siegwerk, and Environmental Inks and Coatings Corp.

Customers of all host companies will be receiving personal invitations to attend. Others wishing to attend these demonstration trials should register on-line by emailing mailto:AandSe-center@rohmhaas.com .
