Already big in Asia and Europe, retort flexible packaging is poised to penetrate deep into lucrative North American markets still dominated by metal cans and glass bottles. by Andrew Mykytiuk, Editor-in-Chief
Strength of the pouch has always been an issue. Most people associate metal cans with strength and can’t believe plastic can be as strong as steel—even people in the packaging industry. “I had one client take a #10 pouch and It tastes better throw it across the factory floor to see if Food packaged in a conventional can the seal would hold,” says Hoss.
Because film projectors are mechanically open, they permit dust, dirt

Simplicity. Film prints require complex chemical manufacturing as well as costly
printing, packaging and shipping to cinemas. This consumes valuable resources
and requires disposal of chemical by-products and the prints themselves after

Polyethylene-starch blend polymer has already found to be a potential candidate to replace non-degradable plastic in packaging . However, the degradation of that polymer in natural ambience (soil burial test) needs to be further evaluated. The purpose of this study is to investigate the degradability of PE-starch blend polymer in soil and in liquid medium. The soil is added starch degrading bacteria isolated from natural soil.
