Amplify Opens with Pre-Event Sustainability Summit on June 13

FSEA-Sponsored Pre-Amplify Sustainability Summit will shine a light on the latest information on sustainability and environmental responsibility in print and packaging, especially around recyclability of products with special finishing applications, including decorative foils and coatings.

The Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech) and the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) are pleased to feature the FSEA-sponsored, pre-Amplify Sustainability Summit on June 13 at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The Amplify event begins on June 14 and runs through June 16, 2022, at the same venue.

The Summit program will:

  • Begin with an overview of the recently released American Forest & Paper Association (AF&PA) Design Guidance for Recyclability, a resource to help designers and brands in the design and manufacture of packaging to meet recyclability goals.
  • Outline new information arising from recent studies on the repulpability and recyclability of both hot and cold transfer foils.
  • Feature a panel of experts, including representatives from American Greetings, Diamond Packaging, KURZ Transfer Products and others, who will discuss packaging sustainability from the perspective of brand owners.
  • Detail alternatives for hot and cold foil waste that can help eliminate the landfill.
