Featuring 5 major sack and film producers, the
2nd edition of AMI's international Heavy Duty Sacks conference will take place on 19-20 June 2018 at the Maritim Hotel, Cologne, Germany.
Sacks are a significant segment of polyethylene
packaging in Europe, accounting for a little over 7% of total polyethylene film
production. Why has there been such dramatic penetration of the total sack
market at the expense of paper sacks in most of the end use sectors? The main
reasons include the following: plastic sacks show improved 'stackability' which
reduces storage space and transport cost (as opposed to stand-up paper or woven
sacks); they are lighter than their paper alternative and so can dramatically
reduce the carbon footprint of the packaging; plastic sacks are 100% recyclable
as opposed to paper sacks laminated with a plastic liner and they demonstrate
100% sealability giving rise to dust-free handling with no spillage or waste;
additionally plastic sacks have improved barrier properties stopping moisture
and odours coming in and out.
The plastic heavy duty sack sector has always
made good use of newly developing raw materials: first butene linear resins,
then the higher alpha olefins and, more recently, metallocenes to allow a
continual process of product improvement and material down-gauging. Advances in
form-fill-seal (FFS) film technology will continue to create further
opportunities for plastic industrial sacks to displace multi-wall paper sacks
in their existing stronghold areas, such as fine powder products, food
ingredients and pet/animal feed and significantly reduce cost to brand owners
and producers of those products.
The Heavy Duty Sacks conference discusses the above issues and presents research findings and possible innovative
solutions to the problems faced by today's industry in the area of
manufacturing, packing, transportation and storage of heavy duty bags and
sacks. It brings together players from across the supply chain including
brand-owners, plastic film and sack manufacturers, raw material producers,
machinery suppliers and researchers; and provides a forum to network with those professionals active in this sector.
