David Clark from Amcor discusses sustainability in SPE Blow Molding Conference

David Clark, Director of sustainability from Amcor Rigid Plastics, will deliver a keynote message in this October’s Blow Molding Conference,

sponsored by SPE (Society of Plastics Engineers, US)’s Blow Molding Division and staged from October 5 to 6 in Atlanta, Georgia, US.

In his speech, Clark will convince blow molders serving the packaging industry that sustainability can mean much more than light-weighting bottles and can even generate opportunities.

“Dave will provide attendees with an overview of Amcor’s sustainability program and how it is integrated into its business strategy and everyday operations,” said Scott Steele, chairman of the Blow Molding Division and vice president of Plastic Technologies Inc. “There is general misunderstanding of what sustainability is and why blow molders should care about it. Molders know about light-weighting and recycle use, but they may not be aware of the other opportunities a sustainability mindset can bring to their business.”

Clark leads Amcor’s EnviroAction program to enhance the environmental profile of Amcor Rigid Plastics’ plants and products, combining his hands-on technical and project-management skills with an interest in finding more sustainable business strategies. He is closely involved with PET recycling and issues related to the collection, processing, and use of recycled containers, as well as integrating sustainable design into Amcor’s product development and innovation processes.

The Blow Molding Conference will feature industry speakers presenting segments in both packaging and industrial applications. Planned sessions include: PET/Polyolefins Outlook, Industrial Processing Equipment, Sustainability and Light-weighting, New Packaging Materials and Applications, Industrial Materials and Applications, Blow Molding Optimization and Packaging Machinery Advancements.
