COVID-19 update (Jan 2021). Treesearch is following the recommendations from the Public Health Agency of Sweden and the local restrictions from the Treesearch partners. Due to health concerns and  travel restrictions all courses during spring 2021 will be given as on-line courses. For summer and autumn we hope to give courses in person, with the complementary possibility to attend on-line.

Course content:

Packaging will be presented and discussed from the performance perspective, in certain applications with a focus on food stuffs, including product safety (especially materials and barriers perspective), economics/services (systems perspective), communications and marketing, logistics, design and sustainability. Materials used in packaging, and some of the converting processes, will be covered, such as glass, metals, polymers and fiber based packaging, but with an emphasis on the two latter.

Study visit to a packaging production and a materials recovery plant is planned.
