Sustainability, D’Amato (Seda): “Packaging can only be disposable”

So the president of Seda International Packaging Group on the occasion of the event in Rome organized by McDonald’s and Altroconsumo ‘Innovations and alliances in the packaging recycling chain’.

“The packaging can only be disposable, it is necessary to protect the food and the health of the consumer, and the reuse method does not guarantee this. In times of pandemic, we need to be even more careful to avoid risks of contamination. We must have truly recyclable packaging, in Italy and in Europe we have developed them over the course of thirty years within a virtuous path that has made Europe the area of ​​greatest development of the circular economy on the planet”. So the president of Seda International Packaging Group Antonio D’Amato on the occasion of the event in Rome organized by McDonald’s and Altroconsumo ‘Innovations and alliances in the packaging recycling chain’.

“Europe and Italy in particular have the strongest and most developed circular economy system in the world: we have already exceeded the targets for paper set for 2030 by the European Commission. This is the strength of food packaging, which is disposable and arises from the upstream definition of sustainable, renewable, recyclable and truly recycled raw materials. The one in paper allows us to reach all these important goals, born from sustainable and certified forests that increase the availability of forest in the western world and in Europe. From this point of view, the raw materials that can be functional at the end of the product’s life are chosen upstream”, he adds.
