On January 17, 2024, the MERLIN project held an enlightening webinar titled “Developing Innovative Solutions for Delamination of Multilayer Packaging.” This event, brought together leading experts from the project partners EuPC, ITENE, IONIQA, and UNIBO to present groundbreaking delamination processes developed during the MERLIN project.

The webinar covered innovative approaches tailored to the specific types of packaging to be delaminated, including metalized and non-metalized flexible packaging as well as rigid packaging. During the webinar have been showcase the following advancements:

  • IONIQA: Depolymerization Processes of Polyesters from Rigid Packaging Structures to obtain monomers such as terephthalate (BHET)
  • ITENE: Delamination of Multilayer Film Packaging Using Green Solvent-Based Processes
  • UNIBO: Delamination of Metalized Films Using Solvent-Based Solutions

This webinar has been a unique opportunity for industry professionals, researchers, and stakeholders to gain insights into the latest technological advancements in packaging delamination. Attendees had the chance to engage with the presenters during a live chat and Q&A session at the end of the event.
