Welcome & Introduction

• Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

09.20 - 09.50

The long way home and what's left over at the end

Food packaging is a key area of concern when it comes to online shopping. Perishable foods are extremely sensitive to handling and varying temperature levels. They need special cooling and sound protection. The demands on shippers and distributors are high. We take a closer look at three particular deliveries as examples. What actually arrives at the receiving end?
Chair: Kaasten Reh, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

9.50 - 10.20

Recycling the possibilities 1
Recyclability is the catchword. Raw materials are known to be limited. In Europe, and especially in Germany, recycling is a beacon of hope when it comes to sustainable resource management and environmental conservation. What can we achieve today? What does the science say? Where are the limits? And what will be possible in future?
Andreas Kappel, Der Grüne Punkt – Duales System Deutschland GmbH
Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

10.20 - 10.50

Recycling the possibilities 2

Recyclability is the keyword of the hour. It is well known that raw material resources are finite. Recycling is a source of hope in Europe and especially in Germany when it comes to resource and environmental protection. What is the current state of science? Where are the limits? What is possible in the future?
Alessandro Mariani, INFIA (Klöckner Pentaplast Group)
Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

10.50 - 11.30 – Coffee Break • Networking • Marketplace

11.30 - 12.00

Back into the cycle

Eco-design and the circular economy. In order to deal responsibly with plastic materials, we apply three different approaches to the sustainable use of materials: The reduction of volume (Reduce); The development of reusable solutions (Reuse); The manufacture of recyclable products from used consumer materials circulating in a closed material cycle (Recycle) . The corporate initiative PÖPPELMANN blue® bundles together all the activities which are aimed at promoting and developing the concept of recycling.
• Arno Zerhusen, Pöppelmann TEKU®, Pöppelmann GmbH & Co. KG Kunststoff-Werkzeugbau
Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

12.00 - 13.30 – Buffet lunch • Networking • Marketplace

13.30 - 14.15 – BREAKOUT 1

Forum 1: Cardboard in abundance

Paper, cardboard, carton - tried and tested, occasionally frowned upon, but suddenly back in fashion. Cardboard solutions are often the alternative of choice. But is the reputation deserved?
Ruurd Schut, JASA Packaging
Horst Bittermann, Mayr-Melnhof Karton
Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt-Informations-GmbH

Forum 2: Film – the next generation

Hardly any other material is the subject of so much discussion. But there is also hardly any other area of packaging where so much technical progress has been achieved. So what will the future bring?
Nadine Barsch, Barsch GmbH
Harry Albus, JX Nippon Anci SAS
Chair: Bettina Döhnert, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

14.15 - 15.00 Uhr – BREAKOUT 2

Forum 3: Safe on the road

Reusable transport packaging can ensure safe and space-saving transport. Loose goods in particular can thus reach the POS in an environmentally friendly way. We look at the issues involved.
• Dr. Kurt Jäger, Euro Pool System

Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH

Forum 4: Contemporary solutions need to be sustainable

Nothing is as important to consumers as sustainability and ecology. Or so it seems. But how do they express these views in public and in surveys. Resource-saving packaging is clearly in demand.
Massimo Bellotti and Massimiliano Persico, Carton Pack
Peter van Ostaijen, Corrugated Benelux Association (CBA)
Wim Rodenburg, Fresh Produce Center
Chair: Christine Weiser, Fruitnet Media International GmbH

15.00 - 15.30 – Coffee Break • Networking • Marketplace

15.30 - 15.50

Just leave it out? Unpackaged, ReUse & Reusable at POS
Do we even need packaging? Or can we do without? Is food retailing on the way to a packaging-free future? A variety of innovations are currently being developed to reduce packaging. This article sheds light on this development.
• Dr. Melanie Kröger, Eberswalde University for Sustainable Development, Project Unpacked
Chair: Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr, AMI Agrarmarkt-Informations-GmbH

15.50 - 16.30

Packaging – no walk in the park. Fit for the marathon?

Panel discussion. How can all these challenges best be mastered? How can the different demands of effective packaging, convenient transport, and the protection of resources and the environment be reconciled? First and foremost – the only way is together! If everyone can work together, genuine progress can be made.
Chair: Kaasten Reh (Fruitnet Media International GmbH) | (Dr. Hans-Christoph Behr (AMI Agrarmarkt Informations-GmbH) | Claudia Schuh (Lorentzen & Sievers GmbH)
