While some people tend to think outside the box,we at Ecobliss think into the box. That’s for your product packaging of course. There are a lot of good reasons to pack up your product in a box. For protection and firmness of course. And for handling and storage. But why ‘hide’ your product in a box when you are able to show it! And you know: showing is selling. And why should it be square? Think of beautiful 3D shaped boxes for instance. Holographic or metal surfaces can be applied for the most visual candy you can imagine. And various combinations of transparent plastic boxes and blisters can be realised to suit your most advanced requirements.
So when we say ‘We think ‘inside” the box… You know we put a lot in… to get the best out!”

The UK packaging industry is calling for the phrase ‘sustainable packaging’ to be scrapped and is urging instead for Government to get to grips with the real issues affecting the industry, according to a new report. A national shortage of packaging technicians, fears over scarcity of raw material supplies and a lack of political will to tackle the core issues were all voiced in the PwC report Sustainable Packaging: Myth or Reality. Leading retailers, manufacturers and consumer groups also unanimously agreed that the much used sustainable packaging phrase should be phased out and the focus should be on ensuring packaging delivers maximum sustainability throughout the entire supply chain and is recoverable after use.

Blisters are the 100% way to make your products visible to the world!
Ecobliss, The Smart Source for Blister and High Visibility Packaging.
February 2013 – Briggs and Stratton Europe has recently started using Ecobliss‘ cold seal blister packaging for packaging their spareparts program for lawn mower engines. With cold sealing blister packaging, only pressure is required to make a perfect card-to-card bond. This makes the packaging process simple, quick and very cost-effective. A range of packaging equipment, from the very simple to highly automated, is available to support this packaging process. Cold seal blister packaging is therefore scalable to any packaging job, small or large.
Ecobliss cold seal blister packaging consists of a pressure sensitive fold-over, or separate front and back blister card, and a transparent blister. The blister is trapped between two pieces of board that are bonded under pressure without using any heat. Together, blister and card form a beautiful, highly visible shelf presentation for your product. Another bonus of this technology is that the people doing the packaging will not be exposed to any hazardous or uncomfortable radiation, heat, smell or noise.
Increased flexibility, improved logistics, great appearance and sustainability where the main reasons for Briggs and Stratton to choose for cold seal blister packaging.

“At Ecobliss we understand that packaging is essential in capturing that first moment of truth. It only takes seconds for a consumer to notice a product on the store shelf. That moment presents an incredible marketing and selling opportunity. Nearly 70 percent of all purchase decisions are made at the shelf. Nearly half of all packaged goods are sold without any additional marketing support,” says Chakravarthi AVPS, CEO and managing director, Ecobliss India.
The company during the four-day exhibition showcased its expertise in blister packaging. “Blister and high visibility packaging have proven to be the ideal, self selling packaging for producers and retailers and are still gaining over box packaging. Customers are attracted by a clear and clean presentation of the packed product. The blister bubble shows the actual product and protects it from damaging and tampering. Combined with product information printed on the blister card blister packaging is the perfect, self selling combination,” said Chakravarthi.
The visitors to the stand were given a small printed yellow smiley badge that was packaged at the stand using Ecobliss’ blister packaging technology.
Cold seal blister products are prominently used in various segments like pharmaceutical, electrical electronics, automobile, FMCG, food and agriculture, textiles and apparels, cosmetics and healthcare and so on.
Ecobliss has expanded the product range of different blister types like heat seal blister products, tear resistant blister cards, Ecostrong tamper proof blister products and other high visibility packaging,” All these packaging concepts were promptly displayed and live demonstrations of packaging were held as well,in their well decorated booth at pack plus 2012.

Traditionally Philips Lighting designs two types of packaging for most of their products.
The Western European market place typically prefers carton boxes and Southern European counties are demanding the products to be packed in blister packaging. In competition with other suppliers Philips also challenged Ecobliss to come up with a packaging design that could serve both, ‘blister’ and ‘box’ countries. The packaging should look “high tech” and protect their beautiful new Power LED lamp range. The packaging should be “free standing” for standing shelf presentation but it should also be “hang able” on a pin. For shelf space saving and transport volume reduction the packaging should preferably not be bigger than the size of the lamps and the packaging should pass stringent drop testing without any problems. The price of the package should obviously be kept as low as possible, and investments in new packaging equipment for this project should be avoided.
Now that’s what we call a challenge!
Ecobliss came up with a truly innovative, and as you may have seen in the stores, the winning design, The Ecobliss Blister Box. The Blister Box is a clear plastic folding box that is partially thermoformed to accommodate a perfect fit for the lamp. The lamp inside the box is completely visible, and the crisp, clear plastic is beautifully printed with the Philips brand and all required details. For the Philips project the front of the packaging perfectly follows the shape of the lamp (partially thermoformed). Also the bottom is thermoformed with the purpose of achieving maximum “free-standing” stability.
The new packaging consists of only a single piece of foldable, pre-thermoformed PET plastic. Even the piece of material that holds the lamp in place inside the Blister Box is part of that single piece of material
Printing is done directly on the plastic in UV offset and no additional insert pieces of plastic and/or paperboard are required. After die-cutting the flat, printed folding cards are thermoformed on the Ecobliss ESP T4, a high volume thermoforming machine especially designed to thermoform flat pieces of plastic in perfect registration with the printed area. (contrary to thermoforming from a roll.
The thermoformed, fold over cards are supplied to Philips where the packing operation of the Power LED lamps takes place. No machines are required for the packaging operation. The Blister Box passed the stringent drop testing procedures of Philips in the first test with flying colours.
The Blister Box for Power LED’s is designed to use as little as possible material. Because of its shape and design, the packaging is hardly bigger than the lamps. This saves costly shelf space as compared to normal blister packaging, but also transport cost (less volume). The clear PET material can be recycled after use and there’s absolutely no need for separation of packaging materials by the consumer since it’s made of only one material. The amount of energy used for packing is zero.
On January 18-22 2012 Ecobliss Blisterpackaging Ecobliss has organized the Ecobliss Joint Venture days. (Ecobliss JV days 2012)

Ecobliss, The Smart Source for Blister and High Visibility packaging!
The 23rd International Series of Exhibitions for the Processing, Packaging and End- Line Printing Industries. Indonesia’s established international trade show for the packaging and processing sectors in South East Asia’s biggest market.
Supported by The Indonesian Packaging Federation, The Indonesian Food & Beverages Association, The Indonesian Woven Polyolefin Manufacturers Association and The Indonesian Master Printers Association.
On the back of a sold out event in 2009 and positive market projections for 2010, ProPak Indonesia 2010 returns 1-4 December 2010 as the country’s longest running processing and packaging event. Taking place as an integral part of Manufacturing Indonesia 2010, Indonesia’s most important industrial trade event, ProPak Indonesia 2010 now in its 23rd edition, is set to provide a focus for the processed foods market growing by over 10% pa and a packaging market valued at over US$125 million.
2010 Positive Economic Forecasts
The Indonesian economy is expected to grow moderately by 5.2% in 2010, better than any neighboring ASEAN economies. A large domestic market with an emerging middle class and relatively young population whose consumption accounts for 60% of GDP will help drive healthy and solid growth going forward. This is underpinned by relatively low inflation and increased consumer
bank financing activities. Similarly, foreign direct investment activities are set to rise in tandem with Indonesia’s positive economic growth prospects and stable political scene following the recent legislative and presidential elections. Within South East Asia, analysts have indicated that Indonesia is where they would put their money and that Indonesia’s growth will have a stronger footing than its neighbors.

Vinçotte announces proudly the first OK biobased certificates of a whole range of raw materials. The first licensee holders are each located in a different continent: Asia, America and Europe. List of certified products >>
As active drivers for sustainable development, multiple companies are proactively searching for alternatives to fossil-based raw materials. Several manufacturers are making synthetic materials using as their base starch, cellulose, lactic acid, “bacterial fat”, etc. By so doing, these companies contribute in an innovative manner to resolving the economic and environmental problem of fossil fuels and greenhouse gases.
OK biobased – NEW AS OF SEPTEMBER 2009!
As a result of the increased environmental awareness among customers, there is a growing market for products on a basis of renewable raw materials. And that environmentally conscious motivation on the part of customers is exactly the reason why there is a need for an independent, high-quality guarantee of the renewability of raw materials. The “OK biobased” certification meets that need perfectly.
In contrast to LCA (Life Cycle Assessment), the investigation method behind the OK biobased certification is very simple and the exact value can be precisely and scientifically measured and calculated. This renders checks and re-checks very transparent and also allows “apples to be compared with apples” with the greatest ease.
On a basis of the determined percentage of renewable raw materials (% Bio-based), your product can be certified as one-star-bio-based, two-star-bio-based, three-star-bio-based or four-star-bio-based.
1 star stands for 20-40% biobased; 2 stars stand for 40-60% biobased; 3 stars stand for 60-80% biobased; 4 stars stand for more than 80% biobased
Industrial biotechnology has the potential to save the planet up to 2.5 billion tons of CO2 emissions per year and support building a sustainable future, a WWF report found.
As the world is debating how to cut dangerous emissions and come together in an international agreement treaty which will help protect the planet from potentially devastating effects of climate change, innovative ideas how to reduce our CO2 are very valuable.
A recent report published by WWF Denmark identifies the potential to be between 1 billion and 2.5 billion tons CO2 per year by 2030, more than Germany’s total reported emissions in 1990.
Industrial biotechnology could help create a true 21st century green economy, the report states. Industrial biotechnology applications are already widely used in everyday life. They help reduce the amount of time needed to bake fresh bread, increase the yield in wine, cheese and vegetable oil production and save heat in laundry washing.
“Low carbon biotech solutions are a good example of hidden or invisible climate solutions that are all around us already today but are easy to overlook for policymakers, investors and companies.” says John Kornerup Bang, Head of Globalization Program at WWF Denmark and coauthor of the report.
A newer example on how biotechnology solutions could help reduce carbon emissions is the harvesting of biogas from waste digesters and wastewater streams.
The report emphasizes the potential of taking that existing technology even one step further and creating fully closed loop systems.
Biorefineries are able to transform any biobased waste material into a valuable feedstock for the production of other biobased materials. The possible emission reductions for such processes are estimated to be as high as 633 million tons of CO2.
The report indentifies four fundamental dimensions of industrial biotechnology: Improved efficiency, the substitution of fossil fuels, the substitution of oil-based materials and the creation of a closed loop system with the potential to eliminate waste.
But as with most technologies, the potential to achieve sustainability objectives does not automatically translate into such goals being realized.
“Politicians need to set the path toward a green economy. This will not be easy, and we must look for new solutions, which can help us reduce emissions very quickly. It is clear that there is no alternative to explore these innovative pathways,” John Kornerup Bang said.
