Life Cycle Assessments of various food products packed in flexible packaging
Understanding Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) of Flexible Packaging
For over 20 years the packaging sector has been required to examine its environmental footprint and to continuously reduce it, recycling the used packaging materials for future use wherever possible. To do this, the packaging sector has effectively used the Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) method to quantify and track progess. This also required the industry to produce accurate data for both the packaging materials and the processes used to convert them into packaging.
