Husky Injection Molding Systems highlights its commitment to sustainable packaging solutions for future generations with sustainable packaging being a highlight of its booth at K 2019 in Dusseldorf, Germany. With the company’s industry-leading position and history of being a socially responsible, environmentally-conscious global player, Husky is dedicated to making a positive impact in aligning the goals of sustainability with the many positive attributes of plastic packaging.


An increase in sustainable packaging options is a global focus, with consumers looking for packages with a lower carbon footprint that contain more recycled and recyclable content. The company’s variety of system solutions enable more post-consumer resin (PCR) in packages, including PET preform molding systems capable of handling 100% recycled content and PCR options for its multi-layer technology. As well, the company is developing more energy efficient systems, increased lightweighting capabilities and innovative tethered closure designs to meet recycling and packaging legislation. The company is currently developing a new system focused on incorporating PCR, enabling customers to bring more than 60,000,000 kg of PET annually into the circular economy within the next 24 months. The system works in conjunction with equipment that purifies recycled material and eliminates intermediate steps of pelletizing and re-melting, reducing costs while ensuring package quality.


As part of Husky’s commitment to the environment and to help enable the sustainability goals of its customers, the company has also signed the New Plastics Economy Global Commitment from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. The Global Commitment brings together brands, businesses and governments around the world to tackle the issues of plastics and the circular economy.
