Packaging of the future: when can Russia expect a circular economy?

Section: Articles

Antro Säilä, WPO Vice President of Sustainability and Director of the Finnish Packaging Association, spoke at the conference on the circular economy and experience of implementing it in the European Union.

A circular economy, or a closed-cycle economy, as opposed to a linear economy, involves using waste materials as raw material for new products.

The huge amount of waste currently being created and mainly used packaging is putting an unbearable burden on the environment. Public pressure on this issue is growing and politicians around the world are thinking about regulating the packaging industry and introducing a circular economy.

Section: Intervue

On 18 June 2019, the 24th international packaging industry exhibition RosUpack opens at Moscow’s Crocus Expo. Event Director Sergey Ditev spoke to to spill the beans on what to expect from this year’s leading packaging industry gathering.

How is the preparation going for RosUpack 2019?

Preparation is in full swing - this year the exhibition has expanded; we’re expecting more than 120 new exhibiting companies. We’re gaining momentum and have seen a whole lot of visitor registrations already.

Unveiled last year, the new branding for the show, which went down very well, is being updated.
Exhibitors have already begun to prepare for the event and we’re almost fully booked in terms of stand space. Exhibitors are especially active in the packaging and packaging production sectors; many companies have increased their stands.

Russia needs investments in packaging

Section: Intervue

Russia has huge potential. It also pertains to new investments in the packaging industry. This is what Eric Pavone, Business Director of BOBST Business Unit Web-fed, thinks, and an interview with him Unipack.Ru offers to its readers.

What interesting things could visitors see at BOBST stand at RosUpack 2014 in Moscow?

As you can see, we have a large booth at the show. Why is that? Because Russia is one of the most important markets for our company. Under the slogan "One group is one brand", since 2012, we have unified all group companies under one brand name of BOBST. The Web-Fed Business Unit manufacturing flexible packaging machinery has undergone particularly great changes. Earlier the brand-names of our equipment - laminators, metallizers, flexo machines and gravure printing machines – were called Rotomec, General, Fischer & Krecke. Now we have all united under the brand name of BOBST. I must say that we have not lost our identity, we still produce Rotomec, Fischer & Krecke and other machines, but these names have turned into machine model names. Therefore, here, at an important packaging exhibition like RosUpack, we represent the company under one brand name of BOBST.

RosUpack is not a show wherein we need to demonstrate equipment. We participate in this show because the exhibition provides an opportunity to meet. Business, image and communication with customers - these are the main factors of our participation. Many leading packaging manufacturers - such as Mondi, Constantia Flexibles, Eximpack, Gotek, Danaflex etc. - have their stands at RosUpack. And they all are our customers. It is important to be close to them at the fair to demonstrate our commitment to the Russian market. And we're glad to have taken part in this exhibition.
