Sustainable Pharma Packaging

We at Körber believe the pharmaceutical industry will ultimately dispense of plastic packaging within a few years. Our Rondo Solutions are pioneering when it comes to sustainability. Today pharmaceutical packaging expects to be innovative, compact, safe, and environmentally friendly. That’s because opinions in this area also began to change some time ago. The aim is to dispense with plastic and replace it with biocompatible materials such as recyclable boxes, compostable sachets, and environmentally friendly tubes. Wood, bamboo, and fungi serve as raw materials. Körber has been a pioneer in the area of sustainable production chains for more than 40 years. We supply international pharmaceutical customers with packaging that is made solely of paper fibers that are also biodegradable. We not only think about ways in which we can manufacture packaging in as resource-conserving a manner as possible, but also how this packaging can best be disposed of or recycled. Another fact that speaks in favor of our sustainable solutions is that they can be produced by more than 90% of our packaging machines. Our commitment to environmental compatibility is also reflected in the numerous times that our innovative packaging solutions have received awards such as the Pro Carton ECMA Gold Award and the Pharmapack Award.

  • Webinar Delivering the Difference: Know-how and Cutting-Edge Technology

    The presentation will focus on pressing over the pain points of Pharma Manufacturing, where we present the ECOSYSTEM of Körber Pharma as a great solution. I plan to address the burning questions - What is an Ecosystem and why is it so important in Pharma Manufacturing? The specific details on exploring Körber as a brand and its expertise in Pharma machinery (Packaging for parenteral, vaccines, blister, capsules, etc, handling/buffer/conveyer machines and Visual Inspection machines (automatic, semi-automatic visual inspection and manual machines)), Software (MES and other software innovations), Materials for pharma packaging (our green footprint apart from other advantages, e.g. test battery) as well as Consulting in Pharma Manufacturing, including topics such Pharma 4.0, validation (CSV, CQV and process validation), vertical and horizontal integration and best practices, will be included. The presentation would be rather in an interactive format and would aim to show the audience the relevance of our motivation tag line – Delivering the Difference in Pharma Manufacturing.
