Honeycomb Paperboard Pack—Green & Low Carbon Packaging Solution for Home Appliance
Globe warming caused by Green House Gas emissions has been threatening human life and development, and the CO2 emission associated with production and use of packaging plays an important role in atmospheric greenhouse effect. The carbon footprints of both plastic-based packaging and honeycomb paperboard were studied in this article, and two typical examples of green & low carbon packaging solution for Haier air condition and automatic washing machine were illustrated respectively in conclusion. The analytical results indicated that the paper packaging material can not only reduce carbon dioxide emission dramatically, but is also a technical way for carbon storage. Therefore, replacement of plastic-based cushion packaging with honeycomb paperboard material is a green and low carbon development road with which it can provide a feasible and technical solution with environment protection, material saving and GHG emission reduction for packaging industry.
