    Design for recyclability

    Design for recyclability

    In this episode of OMV’s podcast series “Rethinking Resources”, the host and journalist Steve Chaid is joined by Hery Henry (https://www.linkedin.com/in/hery-christian-henry/), a leading expert on design for recyclability. Hery is Group Head of Brand and Sustainability at Wipak, a company that develops and manufactures highly innovative, premium quality, flexible packaging solutions.
    Smarter designs for the products we consume is leading to massive progress in circularity because things that are made right to begin with can be used, recycled and reused over and over again. Specific to this episode, this means when designers are thinking about how to make attractive packaging, they also need to be thinking about how it will be disposed of after it has been used. Discover in this episode, which kind of material is most promising as sustainable packaging alternative for the future and how we as consumers can steer the industry in the right direction.
