Australian packaging supplier Orora Limited is planning to build a A$20 million (US$15.3m) production line to make multi-walled dairy bags that supplement an agreement with New Zealand-based dairy co-operative Fonterra. The dairy bags will be used in Fonterra’s milk powder operations.
The European Union has adopted a legislative proposal that amends the Packaging and Packaging Waste Directive (PPWD) to address the use of conventional single-use plastics carrier bags and explicitly sanctions the actions of member states that have moved towards compostable bags.
California has become the first US state to approve a ban of single-use plastics bags across its entire territory, despite strong opposition to the move. Until now, such bans have only been implemented by individual cities or counties.
