Faster, better and more efficient
By investing the equivalent of over €11.5 million in the modernization of its filling and packaging equipment at its Carlsberg Brewery in Northampton, Carlsberg Marston’s Brewing Company (CMBC) is taking action to help make its production operations more sustainable. With the energy-efficient, high-performance Innofill Can DVD filler and resource-conserving Innopack Kisters Nature MultiPack (NMP) packer, two new KHS machines are to take on a key role at the brewery. They will improve production while reducing expected water consumption and use of plastic in packaging by increasing capacity for the clever Snap Pack Nature MultiPack, an innovative, sustainable secondary packaging system co-developed by KHS and Carlsberg Group.
KRAHN Chemie acquires manufacturer and distributor
KRAHN Chemie, part of the globally active Otto Krahn Group, has acquired shares of Italian SPECIALITIES s.r.l., a distributor of specialty chemicals for the homecare, personal care, industrial and institutional cleaning market.
SIGMA and Momentive strategic partnership
The partnership between the world market leader in LSR injection molding simulation and one of the leading manufacturers of silicone and silicone derivatives is good news for the silicone processing industry. The challenge here is to produce high-precision components with high requirements that simultaneously exhibit the highest thermal expansion and the greatest compressibility of all elastomers. The more precise the material data and understanding of the material, the better the predictions made by the simulation. The partnership will offer high added value for this industry thanks to the synergies created.
New ZSK FilCo Filtration Compounder
For recycling of post-consumer recyclate (PCR) or any highly contaminated polymer, Coperion has developed the innovative ZSK FilCo filtration compounder that allows filtration and compounding in a single production step.
SÜDPACK expands its involvement in CARBOLIQ
With effect from January 2, 2024, SÜDPACK has acquired additional shares of CARBOLIQ GmbH and appointed Dirk Hardow as Managing Director. By doing so, SÜDPACK is demonstrating its commitment to a closed-loop system for plastics and to chemical recycling as a complementary recycling technology.

PBT range with new highlights
From January 2024, K.D. Feddersen Distribution in Europe is expanding its extensive Celanese PBT range with new grades for food applications, halogen-free flame retardancy and high CTI values.
Scarcity of resources, environmental pollution, and global warming, call to rethink new ways to work towards a sustainable economy. The solution is a Circular Economy, in which waste is used as a valuable source of raw materials. As far as plastics are concerned, the EU has already set the recycling targets: plastic waste should be reusable or recyclable in a cost-effective manner and thus become valuable secondary raw materials. The prerequisite for a wide range of possible uses of the recyclates is that the starting material is sorted and free of impurities.
With its Multifol NT packaging film, SÜDPACK broke new ground in material efficiency many years ago. Now the film manufacturer has taken the next logi-cal step by further developing its flexible films for thermoforming applications. The new Multifol Extreme is the perfect combination of maximum functionali-ty and minimum added weight.
