Sustainability news - what's new with the Loop packaging concept?
Lasers and sustainability - a conversation with Jordi Pinot, President and CEO of Macsa ID

Show Notes

In this episode I take advantage of a visit to Macsa ID in Barcelona, to chat with Macsa's CEO Jordi Pinot on the topic of sustainability in packaging and how laser coding can help companies meet their sustainability goals.

Before this, there is a quick update on the Loop circular packaging system. Kroger is now a Loop partner here in the US as well as Walgreens. I'm still somewhat skeptical about this, but it does seem to be making progress.

On the topic of lasers for coding and marking products, Macsa has a very complete line up of laser systems for just about every application - see more info here: https://www.idtechnology.com/products/coding-solutions/laser-coders/ 

In the podcast, we discuss how laser coding allows for permanent prints to be added to all kinds of products. Lasers use no inks or solvents, making them an environmentally friendly way to add date and traceability codes as well as barcodes to many types of packaging materials.
