Moreover, together with Pagès Group and MCC Verstraete, Kiefel will also showcase recyclable or compostable label solutions suitable for fiber packaging.

Material-saving plastic solutions – efficiently produced“Additionally, we are displaying machine technology for the efficient production of sustainable polymer containers, which are lightweight and material saving and can be made of mono materials, like our SPEEDFORMER KMD 78.2 SPEED for tray production and our SPEEDFORMER KTR 5.2 for cup production,” highlights Armin Dietrich, Director Sales of Polymer Packaging at Kiefel.
