Australian Institute of Packaging Teaches Sustainable Packaging Design

The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) will give a sustainable packaging design course covering bioplastics.

The course will last half a day and is aimed at employees responsible for making packaging changes and reducing waste for their company.

The course will include practical guidelines and criteria to design and develop sustainable packaging. It will include bioplastics, plastic, glass and metal packaging and their impact on the environment. Participants are invited to bring a sample of their packaging material as a case study.

A visit to the material recovery facility is included in the course to understand how separation works and what can be recycled. One of the learnings will be to understand the end-of-life options of packaging.
