Biodegradable Packaging:

How patent analytics can help organisations solve technical problems and hit their sustainability goals faster?

It is now common knowledge that consumers are purchasing more from brands that are following eco-friendly practices – plastic-free packaging. Hence, it has become imperative for organizations, especially the FMCG sector, to shift to biodegradable packaging.

However, organizations are facing the difficulty to overcome specific technical issues with bio-packaging materials which are hindering them from achieving their sustainability goals.

If technology drives the growth of a company, tapping a source of technology intelligence becomes imperative. Speaking about technical intelligence, patents offer an incomparable wealth of data that is in the public domain and is available at low or no costs at all.

In the webinar, Arindam and Shikhar showcased how patent data can answer pressing technical concerns like:

  • How can you reduce non-biodegradable content in your packaging products?
  • Better alternatives to plastics and other non-biodegradable content in packaging materials and products.
  • What big and small players are doing to make their packaging products sustainable?
  • How can they achieve their sustainability goals by incorporating already available compostable materials in the market into their product?

Do these questions sound like your concerns as well? Register for the webinar and get them answered.
