We need global standards to share product information throughout the value chain. And in this era of Digitization and Machine Learning we need even more strict standards to let algorithms and rules do the work. That is why we need ETIM, the standard format to share product data. Learn more about how ETIM can support your business.
For over 20 years intraPLAN has stood for conceptual planning in the building materials trade. As managing director I advise owners in the area of location planning with future-oriented logistics solutions. In addition to new construction and conversion planning, this can also include extensions or detailed logistical planning.
In my presentation, I will use the example of Materiaux PLUS SA to show how optimal logistical planning, in close cooperation with the customer, has resulted in a sustainable building materials business.
Circular packaging an economic and sustainable necessity for companies with a vision of the future. Until 2017, very large quantities of packaging waste went to the Far East for recycling. Due to fraudulent practices in the region, one country after another prohibits the import of these waste streams.
This year Valipac has demonstrated in a project with Wienerberger, Total, Rymoplast (recycler), Oerlemans Packaging, Fema and the waste collectors that the circular story works and is also economically viable. This team has succeeded in turning plastic waste from packaging on construction sites into new, equally high-quality shrink hoods for pallets with bricks of Wienerberger. As a result of this demonstration project, the next challenge is to convince as many building material manufacturers as possible to use these circular packaging and thus develop a European recycling industry for plastic films.
