from unwieldy glass bottles, petpower and seaquist closures teamed together to develop an eyecatching and lightweight new pack. &nbspto keep the new package looking its best at all times, the ambercoloured squeezable container has been topped off with a custom simplisqueezer plug to prevent any unwanted drips, leaks or spills. &nbspa quick squeeze of the shapely container suffices to cleanly dispense the syrup into the attractive measuring beaker, which has also been cleverly designed to sit snugly on top of the childsafe overcap. more information at www.webpackaging.com packaging perfection heineken group in russia offers to the consumers a new option of packaging of the popular beer brand. now the product line of the national premium brand bochkarev is produced in aluminum

the life sciences industry. watching expenses is a critical task at group health as well, where the companys seattle facility handles mailorder prescriptions and serves as a central fill location for its 26 pharmacies located in both washington and idaho. since adding a maverick enterprises upm bt universal packaging machine with bottle and tote infeed, group health has reduced its labor needs, improved efficiency within its confined 7,000 sq area, and readied itself to handle growing sales volume. in turn, those benefits help to hold down group health member costs. more information at www.maverickinc.bizevery last drop out of a ketchup bottle researchers from a number of german institutions have embarked on a joint project to reduce leftover traces in plastic packaging. &nbspby applying thin films, 20nm thick, to the inside surface of the packaging, the team hope to reduce leftover traces by a half or less. &nbspsponsored by the federal ministry of education and research bmbf, the project involves two fraunhofer institutes process engineering and packaging ivv, in freising and interfacial engineering and biotechnology igb, in stuttgart, the munich university of technology, and a number of industrial partners. &nbspdr michaela mller from igb said we make the coatings from a plasma of the type already familiar from neon lamps. the plastics are placed in a vacuum chamber gases are then introduced and ignited by an applied voltage. &nbspwe can deposit different coatings with defined properties on the surface of the packaging, depending on the proportions of electrons, ions, neutrons and photons in this luminous gas mixture, said mller. &nbspthe project is seeking to address the difficulties leftovers cause for recycling, in terms of increased water usage, expense and time. more information at www.prw.com &nbsptvs group company plans bioplastics production chennaibased harita nti, a tvs group company plans to manufacture base resins from biomass.
