Environmental protection "FSC" road is the general trend of the packaging industry

it is reported that in August and September last year, a small FSC green logo will appear on Tetra Pak pillows and Tetra Pak brick packages of some milk products. Sticking this label means that Tetra Pak will meet a certification called forest sustainable management from the source of raw materials to the final packaging

for Tetra Pak, this is not just a green action focusing on environmental protection, but a strategic adjustment, because Tetra Pak knows that maintaining the sustainability of forest resources is equal to continuing its lifeline

Tetra Pak's FSC road

Tetra Pak aseptic packaging is a composite of paper, aluminum foil and polyethylene plastic, which can effectively prevent external pollution and oxidation, so as to ensure that the products in the packaging can have a long shelf life without refrigeration and preservatives. At the same time, because the whole process of production, transportation, retail, storage and consumption does not need cold chain equipment such as refrigerated trucks, refrigerated sales cabinets and refrigerators, it is naturally conducive to energy conservation and emission reduction, which is of positive significance not only to protect the social environment, but also to reduce the carbon footprint of personal life. In addition, the square brick aseptic packaging design is more convenient to maximize the use of space, improve logistics efficiency, and further reduce energy consumption

Tetra Pak packaging after consumption is a resource that can be 100% recycled and reused. Through hydraulic pulping and aluminum-plastic separation technology, the paper, plastic and aluminum foil in composite paper packaging can be completely separated, realizing the green recycling mode from resources to resources; Or through plastic wood technology, Caile board technology, etc., it can be transformed into rich and practical environmental protection products such as park guardrails, garbage cans, desks and chairs, outdoor floors, paper and clothes hangers, and has a good market prospect

75% of the raw materials in Tetra Pak sterile packaging are cardboard, which comes from renewable forest resources. Tetra Pak believes that forests are the best packaging on earth. In order to protect the environment and keep the forest growing, Tetra Pak implements strict standards in the procurement of raw materials to ensure that 100% of the paperboard used comes from forests that are well managed and in line with the principles of sustainable management

in 2007, 80% of Tetra Pak's global paperboard suppliers obtained the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) chain of custody certification. Tetra Pak promises that by 2015, all its paperboard suppliers will obtain FSC chain of custody certification, and in 2018, all Tetra Pak packaging and printing plants around the world will also complete this certification

fsc certification helps Tetra Pak achieve its local strategy

at present, Tetra Pak's sterile paper packaging products sold in China have achieved the purchase of raw materials such as plastic and aluminum in China, but the purchase of pulp is still imported from cardboard processing enterprises in northern Europe, America and other places. At present, Tetra Pak plans to launch packaging cardboard suppliers with FSC certification marks in China, mainly from northern Europe and Brazil

there is no doubt about the cost advantage of localized procurement, but Tetra Pak did not carry out localized procurement of paperboard in China because there is a certain gap between the paperboard quality and environmental protection status of domestic suppliers in China and Tetra Pak's requirements. Ms. Yang Bin, President of Tetra Pak (China), said that as more forestry institutions in China have obtained FSC certification for forest resources and the quality of domestic paperboard suppliers has improved, Tetra Pak will consider developing paperboard suppliers locally

in addition, the measures of peers forced Tetra Pak to accelerate the launch of green new clothes in China. According to insiders, before Tetra Pak, Quanlin packaging and SIG Kangmei packaging successively launched sterile paper packaging products that passed FSC and similar certification in China. These two are Tetra Pak China's main competitors in the field of sterile paper packaging

at present, the number and area of global forest resources will encounter such situations in the development. The accumulation and ecosystem diversity show a downward trend. Some consumers in Europe and the United States refuse to buy wood products without legal source certificates

at present, this awareness has been awakened among Chinese consumers. Various signs show that environmental protection has become the embodiment of soft competitiveness in business competition

Tetra Pak's absolute leadership in the field of sterile paper packaging in China has not changed. But it is also an indisputable fact that the market share is divided. In 2008, Tetra Pak's share in China's sterile paper packaging market was about 85% - 90%, which was called the largest in the industry. Now, this proportion has been diluted to more than 70%

some voices in the industry say that the gap between Tetra Pak, SIG Kangmei packaging and Quanlin packaging is not large in terms of packaging material quality alone, but in terms of price, the relatively lower price of local packaging material enterprises has become a killer mace

environmental protection has been the general trend of the packaging industry

green packaging is the development trend of the whole packaging industry. Dairy packaging is the first requirement because of its wide range of use. Dairy packaging continues to develop in the direction of 4r+1d, that is, low consumption, low quantity, reuse, recycling and degradability. The greening of dairy packaging should be reflected in the greening of the whole process. From raw material manufacturing to recycling, every link should be energy-saving, material saving, efficient and harmless

first, the use of green materials. As a fully biodegradable material, polylactic acid has been made into containers to package dairy products in some developed countries. Aclin packaging is also a kind of environmentally friendly packaging due to its low resin content. The use of new glass bottles is also growing. Use PET material instead of PS material to make cups, and use paper materials for cover films and labels

second, the packaging design is accurate, and there is no excessive packaging design. The wall thickness of the container is homogenized and thinned, and the design of large capacity packaging barrels relatively reduces the amount of materials

third, flexographic printing is adopted in the production process, and water-based ink is used to eliminate the pollution of chemical solvents

fourth, the recycling of packaging materials. For aseptic brick packaging with poor environmental protection, three recycling technologies have been developed: 1) hydraulic regeneration pulp technology, which separates Tetra Pak pulp to produce recycled paper, and extrudes the aluminum foil and plastic components into particles to become the raw materials of plastic aluminum products; 2) Plastic wood technology, Tetra Pak itself contains high-quality paper fibers and plastics, which can be crushed and extruded, and can be directly produced into indoor furniture, outdoor gardening facilities, industrial pallets and other plastic wood products; 3) Caile board technology, Tetra Pak is directly crushed and hot pressed to make Caile board, and then processed into beautiful and durable products such as suitcases with known resistance values of R1 and R2

in addition, the measures of peers forced Tetra Pak to accelerate the launch of green new clothes in China. According to insiders, before Tetra Pak, Quanlin packaging and sig kangmeibao successively launched sterile paper packaging products that passed FSC and similar certification in China. Lou Huafen, vice president of China aluminum materials utilization research institute, and Yu Minggao, a professional, are Tetra Pak China's main competitors in the field of sterile paper packaging

at present, the number, area and ecosystem diversity of global forest resources show a downward trend. Some consumers in Europe and the United States refuse to buy wood products without legal source certificates. At present, this awareness has been awakened among Chinese consumers.

Crushing and extruding them can directly produce plastic wood products such as indoor furniture, outdoor gardening facilities, industrial pallets, etc; 3) Caile board technology, Tetra Pak is directly crushed and hot pressed to make Caile board, and then processed into beautiful and durable products such as peel boxes
