Texte AlternatifTexte Alternatif Using plastics generally means packing more food with less material. Moreover, as pointed by the study, packaging avoids food wastage up to 20%. And plastic packaging prevent some extra 10% of fresh food wastage. So that if plastic packaging did not exist and had to be replaced by other solutions, this would result in the multiplication by 3.6 of the packaging weight, by 2.2 of the energy required for their production and use throughout the product cycle life and by 2.7 of the GHG emissions!
To promote life cycle analysis to demonstrate the benefits of plastic packaging stands among Elipso and PlasticsEurope objectives. Weight reduction and proper waste management are also priorities. Recycling and energy recovery are complementary to divert plastics from landfill and make the most of them.
