DuPont award winners announced at virtual event

DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers is taking a new tack this year and will announce the winners of its 21st DuPont Awards for Packaging Innovation competition via a global, virtual forum. The forum will include exchanges with key industry experts on sustainable packaging as well as with the international panel of jurors who selected this year’s winners from more than 120 entries from around the world.

Registration now has opened for the DuPont Sustainable Packaging Exchange which takes place May 28, 2009, at 10-11 AM EDT.  Participants can register at http://performancematerials.veplatform.com.

“We invite those with interest in sustainable packaging to join us and this year’s winners in exchanging views on key topics such as solutions for end of life,” says Shanna Moore, sustainability director for DuPont P&IP.  “Participants will also learn about the winning companies’ achievements in improving the sustainability of products and processes.”

The DuPont Sustainable Packaging Exchange will kick off with the announcement of the award winners, followed by sessions on the need for global packaging standards and on visions for end-of-life solutions.
 
Available on-demand throughout the event, the Sustainable Packaging Resource Center will have downloadable information and links to useful tools, profiles of the winners, including jurors evaluation and perspectives from the winners on improving the sustainability of their packaging, and open chat and chat rooms where participants can network and learn.  For more information, on the DuPont Sustainable Packaging Exchange go to packaging.dupont.com.

DuPont has a broad portfolio of sustainable solutions for packaging.  Energy and greenhouse gas reductions can be achieved with DuPont™ Cyrel® FAST solventless platemaking systems and with renewably sourced materials such as the recently introduced DuPont™ Biomax® PTT resins and DuPont™ Biomax® TPS thermoplastics starch-based materials..  Materials including DuPont™ Surlyn® can help reduce the amount and weight of packaging that is needed to protect products.

DuPont says it established environmental goals 19 years ago and has broadened its sustainability commitments beyond internal footprint reduction to include market-driven targets for both revenue and research and development investment. The goals are tied directly to business growth, specifically to the development of safer and environmentally improved new products for key global markets.
