Amcor HealthCare AmSky System Scores Win for Recyclable Packaging

The company’s blister system was recognized for improved sustainability and innovation in healthcare packaging at Packaging Europe’s 2022 Sustainability Awards.

Amcor Recycle Ready Blister System

Amcor was named Recyclable Packaging winner at Packaging Europe’s 2022 Sustainability Awards. The company was recognized for its Amcor HealthCareTM AmSkyTM blister system, a breakthrough vinyl-free and aluminium-free thermoformed blister system. This recycle-ready solution is a more sustainable and carbon footprint optimized alternative for the most in-demand healthcare packaging type.

Amcor’s AmSkyblister system is designed for both PE rigid and PE flexible recycling streams. It removes the traditional use of PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and foil from the packaging by using a polyethylene (PE) thermoformed blister and lidding film, enabling pharma companies to improve the recyclability of their packaging. Due to its integrated design, the lidding is also child-resistant and senior friendly (CRSF) to ensure safer and convenient packaging. The AmSky™ Blister System also benefits from up to 70% reduction in its carbon footprint when compared to typical blister packs in the market.

Dr. John Forsyth, global product manager blister systems & sachets at Amcor, says, “AmSky’s breakthrough recycle-ready blister system showcases how material science and design play a vital role in the future of healthcare packaging, and we are delighted to see it recognized for the Recyclable Packaging award. It demonstrates our heritage in healthcare, strong R&D expertise, and commitment to ongoing innovation and sustainability.”

Packaging Europe’s 2022 Sustainability Awards took place in Lisbon, to honor the industry’s most important sustainable innovations across the packaging value chain.
