      Eco-friendly packaging such as moulded pulp products has gained commercial importance in the recent years. However, it remains a greatly under-researched area, and there is an arising need to consolidate the best practices from research and industry in order to increase its implementation. The goal of this paper is to give an overview of the main aspects involved in the manufacture of moulded pulp products.

      This research investigates the potential of titanium oxide nanotubes as oxygen scavengers in packaging applications such as modified atmosphere packaging as well as a colour indicator. As opposed to commercial scavengers that need water to be active, titanium oxide nanotube performs at their best in dry conditions, making them a strong potential candidate for pharmaceutical and medical devices industries.

    2. On The Performance of Mechanical Shock Indicators (pages 257–268)

      This study focused on the influence of pulse duration on the trigger threshold of three types of commonly used shock indicators with the ultimate aim of making recommendations on the effectiveness and use of the devices. Results showed that the triggering of each of the devices was, to varying extents, dependent on shock duration and magnitude and demonstrated that the individual rating listed on the device does not always correspond to the actual triggering threshold which is likely to lead to misuse.

    3. An industry-oriented strategy for the finite element simulation of paperboard creasing and folding (pages 269–294)

      A finite element model for the simulation of paperboard creasing and folding, based on standard features available in a multipurpose finite element code, is proposed as an analysis tool for the definition of a safe parameters space in industrial applications. The paperboard extreme anisotropy is accounted for by means of shell elements, embedded in the 3D elastoplastic mesh and used as in-plane reinforcements. The strategy employed for the model parameters identification is critically discussed, and the model is verified against a reference, recently published approach.
