The Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) is inviting all members to attend a virtual site visit of Martogg Group's Life Cycle Management (LCM) division on 12 May at 10am (AEST).

The Martogg Group was founded in 1975, and has since become one of the country’s largest privately owned polymer distribution, resin compounding and plastics recycling companies. 

Martogg's LCM division is dedicated to providing businesses and brands throughout Australia and the world with an extensive range of recycled polymers, both for industrial and food contact applications. 

Members of the senior LCM team will be available to answer questions, including Austen Ramage (group sustainability manager), and Greg Kerslake (group manufacturing manager), along with sustainability advocate, Sustainable Sally, with whom Martogg LCM recently joined forces.

Martogg says the partnership with Sustainable Sally provides a combined effort to bring awareness to the importance of the circular economy in Australia for converters, brand owners and consumers alike.

The team will also premiere a three-part video series, which discusses the current state of the recycling industry in Australia, showcases the technologies involved and recycled polymers that are available, and shares the story of "some of the great work already being done in this space".
