Sustainable Packaging Symposium 2011—co-produced by Greener Package and the Institute for Sustainability, an AIChE Technological Community—will feature invited experts from the packaging, science and engineering industries. The program will offer session presentations that will answer critical questions remaining top-of-mind for management teams attempting to implement sustainable packaging initiatives.
UGS packaging experts will be on hand at Sustainable Packaging Symposium 2011 to discuss with attendees solutions for their product packaging needs, with a focus on sustainable and rapidly renewable materials. While at the show, attendees are encouraged to visit Unisource's exhibit booth to find out how partnering with Unisource can help provide state-of-the-art technology and packaging design to meet their business requirements.

"We also have the in-house knowledge and experience to address every facet of technology packaging design – including packaging engineered materials and supply—with the added benefit of ensuring environmental sustainability. Our ground-breaking bamboo packaging molding is a strong example of our extensive design and materials engineering capabilities as we continue to research and develop innovative solutions to meet the needs of our customers."
