Growing awareness of plastic waste hazards and technological advancements has influenced various manufacturers in India to innovate environment-friendly packaging.
According to Union Environment Ministry, India produces more than 25,000 tons of plastic garbage per day, of which 60% is recycled. The remaining is burnt, part of it clogs drains, enters the ocean as microplastics, and some is disposed of in landfills. The city of Mumbai is taking action to reduce the usage of plastic boxes and containers for food delivery after outlawing single-use plastics. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) offered to use steel containers during a meeting with restaurant associations. The United Nations Development Programme estimates that India generates 15 million tonnes of plastic per year, of which only 25% is recycled.
Government and leading manufacturers are collaborating leading to growing demand for biodegradable packaging. For instance, In July 2021, The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) of India introduced items for ecologically friendly packaging that are made from natural, plant-based, food-grade ingredients that decompose quickly. The ecologically friendly packing bags that DRDO and Ecolastic introduced are available in both water-soluble and water-resistant varieties. The bags are supposed to have no negative effects on the environment and can organically decompose in three months. In a recent development in February 2023, plastics commonly used in the packaging industry have been shown to bio-transform in under 4 months and return to nature in just 176 days, leaving no microplastics or toxins behind. This work was done in collaboration with Indian plastic manufacturer Toppan Specialty Films (TSP) and sustainable plastic innovator Polymateria. Biaxially oriented (flexible) polypropylene, which is used in food and cosmetic packaging, is degrading fully quickly.
Government initiatives and various product launches are fuelling the biodegradable packaging market.
The growing desire for sustainable packaging has been immensely growing due to increased knowledge of social concerns over waste, climate change, and carbon footprint reduction. These factors have led to various product innovations by leading manufacturers in India. For instance, in June 2022, Global brewer, Corona announced the introduction of a new six-pack in India that is entirely compostable and biodegradable and is created entirely of barley straw. This new circular container design underscores Corona's overarching objective of defending and safeguarding the environment. The new six-pack from Corona, which is constructed entirely of barley straw, is in keeping with the World Environment Day theme of "Only One Earth," which centres on "Living Sustainably in Harmony with Nature."
- In March 2023, with the help of ABB India - a leading manufacturer and supplier of pulp and paper machinery - Parason, automated and increased the production of biodegradable packaging options. Through this partnership, Parason hopes to decrease the usage of single-use plastics and Styrofoam packaging among its clients, including those in the food service and hospitality sectors, travel, transportation, and industrial canteens.
- Beginning on July 1, 2022, India no longer permits the manufacture, importation, storage, distribution, sale, or use of any single-use plastic products that have been determined to have a high potential for littering and low usefulness.
The FSSAI has taken initiatives towards the reduction of plastic footprint in the F&B industry, wherein many food businesses in India have pledged to eliminate single-use plastic in the coming years; develop environmentally friendly substitutes; and, an effective plastic collection and recycling/distribution system. In addition to framing the Packaging Regulations that provide guidelines for businesses looking to verify that the packaging materials and processes manufacturers are using are safe for food. Several awareness-raising and collecting campaigns were held following the Swachhata Hi Seva Campaign. These are a few of the key elements that made it possible for beverage firms to reaffirm their dedication to sustainability. Reusing the drink's packaging can promote more product recycling, a plastic-free environment, and a reduction in carbon impact.
As consumers become more environmentally conscious, there is a growing demand for packaging solutions that are eco-friendly and sustainable. Paper-based packaging, which is renewable, biodegradable, and recyclable, is a popular choice among environmentally conscious consumers. Moreover, plastic waste has become a major environmental issue, and many countries, including India, are implementing measures to reduce plastic usage. Paper-based biodegradable packaging offers a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic packaging.
India has a large forestry industry and produces a significant amount of wood pulp, which is a key raw material for paper-based packaging. According to the Indian Pulp and Paper Technical Association, India's paper industry has grown from a production of 0.7 million tonnes in 1950 to over 22 million tonnes in 2021, making it the fastest-growing paper market in the world.
Moreover, the Indian government has taken steps to promote the use of eco-friendly packaging solutions. For instance, it notified the Plastic Waste Management Amendment Rules, 2021, which prohibited the manufacture, import, stocking, distribution, sale, and use of single-use plastics (SUPs), intended to phase out the single-use Plastic Carry Bags of thickness less than 120 microns.
