INTRODUCING & WELCOME: Kirsi SEPPÄLÄINEN | Stora Enso at 12th “THE CONFERENCE”

Kirsi Seppäläinen | Vice President | Strategic projects, Biomaterials Division, Stora Enso

Speaker at the 12th INTERNATIONAL LABEL CONFERENCE 2018

What a tree can do –

Innovation as enabler for circular economy

“We have used trees and pulp for paper for many centuries. However, this sustainable and renewable raw material can do much more. New technologies help us to separate the valuable fractions of the tree more efficiently and use them into applications replacing current fossil-based materials – products that are renewable, reusable and recyclable. The components of the tree: cellulose, hemi-cellulose and lignin can create applications replacing  plastics, carbon fibres, polyester, phenols – almost anything that is made from fossil-based materials today.”

Kirsi Seppäläinen

Kirsi2

Member of Biomaterials division management team since March 2012. Responsible strategy process, various strategic projects, marketing communications,branding and multisite certification. Prior to this position managerial responsibilities in communications, marketing and sustainability at Stora Enso, Metsä-Botnia, Uponor and Helvar Merca Group with international focus. Stora Enso Pathbuilders’ programme 2012-2013 and Pathbreakers’ programme in 2015, both programmes focusing on strategy and innovation with IMD.

About Stora Enso

Part of the bioeconomy, Stora Enso is a leading provider of renewable solutions in packaging, biomaterials, wooden constructions and paper globally. Our customers include packaging producers, brand owners, paper and board producers, publishers, retailers, print houses, converters, and joinery and construction companies.  Stora Enso has some 26 000 employees in over 30 countries. Our sales in 2017 were EUR 10 billion, with an operational EBIT of EUR 1 billion.

We believe that everything that is made from fossil-based materials today can be made from a tree tomorrow. Our materials are renewable, reusable and recyclable, and form the building blocks for a range of innovative solutions that can help replace products based on fossil fuels and other non-renewable materials.  Biomaterials division offers a wide variety of pulp grades to meet the demands of paper, board, tissue, textile and hygiene product producers. We also develop new ways to maximise the value extractable from the wood as well as other kinds of lignocellulosic biomasses. The extracted sugars and lignin hold potential for use in a range of applications.

THE CONFERENCE welcomes TANJA FELL, Msc. | Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV | IVV · Department of Process Development for Polymer Recycling

 

TANJA FELL, MSc.

 

Tanja Fell holds a Master of Science degree in Food Processing. She works as senior scientist at Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging IVV since October 2011.

As a member of the group of process development for polymer recycling, there she leads many industrial and research projects in the field of packaging recycling.

She develops processing concepts (recycling concepts) for packaging materials (for petrochemical and bio-based polymers). One of their main tasks is the process development for the separation of composite materials by using the CreaSolv® Process. In addition, she deals with the evaluation of the recyclability of packaging materials and with the reduction of odors in plastic waste or recyclates.

  • CONFERENCE TOPIC
    • Packaging Recycling „Opportunities and Challenges“
    • Packaging recycling (Collecting, Sorting, Recycling-Technologies)
    • Packaging and its challenges during recycling
    • Recycling-friendly packaging design
    • Plastics recycling via CreaSolv® Process (Examples)

Mission Statement

The Fraunhofer IVV stands for high-quality food products and safe, effective, and convenient packaging systems. Efficient use of raw materials and minimal environmental impact are priorities in all our development work. We also transfer our technologies and expertise to applications outside the food and packaging industries. Companies and research organizations appreciate the Fraunhofer IVV as a business partner. People are inspired by our research work and the resulting products.

Department: Process Development for Polymer Recycling
Field: Recycling of packaging waste

We use our expertise in process engineering, chemical engineering, and recycling to develop processes for recycling plastic packaging materials and in particular packaging films. In general these films require a complex multilayer structure involving different polymers in order to meet today’s technical and optical demands. Recycling into high-quality individual polymers is not possible using currently available separation technologies. To address this situation, we are using our patented CreaSolv® Process to develop customized solutions for both post-consumer waste and post-industrial waste. This process dissolves the target polymers as mono-materials from the composite film and processes these into high-quality regranulates for use in new packaging materials. In parallel we are developing recyclable packaging solutions and verifying these using commonly used separation technologies.

We are also researching and optimizing the circular economy and/or cascade systems for biopolymers such as PLA

Better Entrepreneurship | 11th International Label Conference 2016

Where are the heroes of our future?

The psychology of entrepreneurship can be better understood by comparing it to the hero‘s adventure in mythology because myths are often seen as symbolic representations of the psyche. The hero and the entrepreneur are found to be similar in their respective adventures, a three-part sequence of separation from the community, initiation into new creative powers and a return to the community with a boon for his fellow citizens. Both are creative, curious, energetic risk-takers who are guided by mentors. Entrepreneurship can be seen as a manifestation of a universal human psychological condition, the desire for individual creativity.

 Where are the heroes of our future? Economy needs creativity and creativity needs freedom.

 

Wo sind die Helden unserer Zukunft?

Man versteht die Psychologie des Unternehmertums besser, wenn man sie mit dem Abenteuer von Helden in der Mythologie vergleicht, denn Mythen sind häufig als symbolische Darstellungen der Psyche zu verstehen. In Bezug auf ihre Abenteuer besteht zwischen Helden und Unternehmern eine gewisse Ähnlichkeit. Die Abfolge besteht jeweils aus drei Teilen: die Trennung von der Gemeinschaft, die Entwicklung neuer schöpferischer Kräfte und die Rückkehr in die Gemeinschaft mit einer Belohnung für ihre Mitbürger. Bei beiden handelt es sich um kreative, neugierige und tatkräftige Hasardeure, die von einem Mentor angeleitet werden. Das Unternehmertum lässt sich als Manifestation eines universellen psychologischen Zustands des Menschen, den Wunsch nach individueller Kreativität, betrachten.

 Wo sind die Helden unserer Zukunft? Die Wirtschaft braucht Kreativität, und Kreativität erfordert Freiheit.
