Dead man walking
In industrial automation, Windows XP is still a current reality, though in April it was officially declared dead. All machine manufacturers that are using it must face a change, but if it made wisely, it can turn into a new and winning product strategy.[...]

Made in Italy
Compared to Germany, Italy is not so able to “make system”. Yet this does not mean we are not competitive on international markets, as it is often said. European commission must radically change its vision of Italy and start using more effective competitiveness indices, such as for instance the WTO ones, otherwise they risk to give us wrong recipes to recover from the crisis.[...]

Plastics: DoC guidelines. At the end of December, on the European Commission site, the Union Guidance on Regulation (EU) No 10/201, also known with the acronym, PIM (Plastics Implementation Measure), providing guidance on application of the information flow along the supply chain of plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food, was issued. The document, that can be downloaded free of charge, originates from the work of a team of experts gathering public and private technicians from DG Sanco. The guidance is aimed at professional organisations and member states competent authorities dealing with questions concerning the interpretation and implementation of certain aspects on the declaration of compliance and adequate information in the plastics supply chain. As you can read in the introductory notes, this document is an evolving document and will be updated to further clarify aspects related to its implementation.[...]

New additives for polyolefins
Among plastic films for food contact, polyolefins, especially polyethylene and polypropylene are the most widespread due to their sealability, low cost and inertia characteristics.
One of the limits of these materials lies in their easy thermo-oxidative and photo-oxidative degradation depending on degradation and cross-linking reactions in the presence of oxygen, almost at every step of their life cycle: during production, storage, processing and end use.
During the year we received, from more than a reader, the indication of proposing Food Packages magazine also in digital format (PDF) in addition to the paper format.
As the essence of the project myFoodPackages, to improve our services according to the needs expressed by those who follow our media, we gave the request to publish Food Packages in PDF format in order to facilitate the collection, portability and indexing of all the issues.
In packaging, sustainability means analysis of raw materials, a targeted planning of structures, recycling, optimization and reduction: packaging plays a key role for the future of our planet. Sustainability is a complex question that cannot be identified with simple packaging reduction.
Food Packages 53 follows out the argument article by article.[...]
That sustainability is an ace in the hole for cellulosic packaging producers is one of the most deeply rooted convictions in the paper and cardboard industry. According to Comieco and Pro- Carton, the ecological the figures impact speak of clearly: card- board today is 915 kg of CO2 equivalent per ton. This figure shows a reduction of 5% in three years. Given these encouraging promises, what, and how much, space is there for improvement? Discover the answers in this issue.[...]
