Sustainable SÜDPACK packaging solutions @ CIFA


At CFIA, the French food industry’s leading trade show, SÜDPACK provided information about its resource-saving SPQ printing technology while also drawing trade visitors’ attention to the recyclable packaging concepts of its Pure-Line films. As another highlight, SÜDPACK’s new LCA tool was a point of focus. It makes fact-based decisions possible for an optimal packaging solution in terms of its ecological impact.

With SPQ (= sustainable print quality), SÜDPACK offers an innovative printing technology that sets standards in flexo and gravure printing. Most notably, SPQ significantly improves the carbon footprint of package printing. This is due in part to the standardization of the color space, which eliminates the need for spot colors. As a result, ink and solvent consumption are reduced as is ink waste. Nevertheless, it is still possible to realize virtually the entire color spectrum – all while maintaining superior print quality and excellent color brilliance. Moreover, the defined color palette makes it possible for all print designs to be represented reliably and with a high degree of automation.

With smart color management, in-house calculations performed by SÜDPACK have shown that ink and solvent waste can be reduced at best by more than 60 percent in the implementation of printed images.
