To create sustainable value for all our stakeholders, we partner along the entire value chain and with different organisations. Our goal is to develop circular solutions that deliver economic value to all parties in the value chain. Therefore, we partner with suppliers, waste recyclers, customers and local sector associations. Because when it comes to breakthrough innovations, collaboration is key.
At PACCOR, we have a clear view of what our customers and society will need and expect from us in the future. This is why we are actively looking to collaborate with forward-thinking partners. In addition, we take our innovations to the next level, considering new business models in all areas. Circular solutions are not just about new products – they are about systematic and fundamental change.
The Digimarc Barcode is a collaborative project between Digimarc Corporation and PACCOR. Together we developed a groundbreaking detecting tool which creates a unique identity in the physical structure of plastics.
We have further developed digital watermarking technology on the plastic surface, ensuring that the watermark can be used and read on all packaging and materials, regardless of the condition of the packaging. By doing this, it increases the opportunities of sorting plastics in recycling facilities.
Thanks to a cooperation between one of our partners from the airline industry and PACCOR, we were able to implement a closed loop system for rPET drinking cups used in the airline sector. It allows us to collect all the cups used during a flight, recycle them and reuse the material to create new rPET cups.
At the training centres with our suppliers, we implement a longterm improvement program aiming at optimizing the entire thermoforming process in our factories. From a thorough assessment of our operations to the effective training of our production team, this successful program is creating positive impacts for all employees.
A cooperation with one of our partners led to the introduction of 70% recycled polypropylene in one of their strongest branded products.
