Phoseon Technology has announced its acceptance as a member of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition. Phoseon has joined other companies within the Coalition that are dedicated to creating more sustainable packaging that is good for the environment while being practical for people.
The Sustainable Packaging Coalition (SPC) is a membership-based collaborative that believes in the power of industry to make packaging more sustainable. The SPC is the leading voice on sustainable packaging and passionate about the creation of packaging that is good for people and the environment.
Our mission is to bring packaging sustainability stakeholders together to catalyze actionable improvements to packaging systems and lend an authoritative voice on issues related to packaging sustainability.
At Phoseon, we are fully committed to the well-being of the environment, and continuously work to reduce the environmental impact of the products that we manufacture. In 2002, Phoseon pioneered the use of LED technology for UV curing to replace traditional toxic mercury bulbs from the curing process. Phoseon LED products provide significant energy savings, prevent pollution, and reduce waste. Collectively, Phoseon UV LED lamps have eliminated millions of pound of CO₂ emissions.
With traditional UV curing processes, the tremendous heat associated with mercury UV lamps require a significant amount of electricity to operate. Phoseon UV LED technologies provide energy savings up to 85 percent compared to traditional mercury-vapor UV lamps. With Phoseon light sources, there is no need for fume extraction units to remove the gases generated by mercury-vapor UV lamps.
“By joining the Sustainable Packaging Coalition, we our showing our commitment to manufacture environmentally sustainable products that save energy, eliminate greenhouse gases, and remove mercury waste from the UV curing process,” says Bill Cortelyou, President and CEO at Phoseon Technology. “This membership emphasizes our ongoing dedication to support customers that are creating sustainable packaging.”Tags: Label & Narrow Web Magazine | UV LED Curing | Sustainable Packaging Coalition | Sustainability
