The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC)
are hosting a webinar to share results of a rigorous safer materials pilot project that goes beyond PFAS-Free.
Regulations and restricted substances lists (RSLs) indicate what not to use, but the next question is: What to use instead? Without robust, high-quality data, this question cannot be answered and everyone in the value chain is vulnerable to regrettable substitutions.
The webinar will feature participants from the Safe + Circular Materials Collaborative
, a year-long supply chain collaboration that explored the challenges of circular packaging and solutions to accelerate the transition to safer alternatives.
Participants will share their experience pushing beyond PFAS-free to provide solutions that were fully assessed and verified as PFAS-free and safer alternatives.
“The future of innovation in the packaging supply chain depends on reliable chemical hazard assessment to confirm that materials are verified to be safe for human health and reduce environmental impacts,” commented Zack Leimkuehler, Vice President, Business Development at Ahlstrom. “ChemFORWARD and SPC are building the infrastructure to enable a rigorous evaluation that protects confidential business information from upstream to downstream.”
In this webinar, you will learn about this journey from leaders at Ahlstrom and World Centric while gaining an early preview of efforts to populate a shared registry of verified safer building block materials.
Join us for a look at the future of safe and circular materials for packaging.
