DEKORA – SMART DECORATION AND FUNCTIONALIZATION OF EMB-GLASS
Name of the operation: “DEKORA – Smart decoration and functionalization of EMB-glass”.
In order to strengthen its global market position through technology breakthrough products and production processes, Steklarna Hrastnik, as the owner of the processes and the business where the demonstration production line will be set up, brings together in the consortium partners (RC eNeM, Solvera Lynx, Grec) whose advanced products and services will be complementary to the pilot development and demonstration of an advanced packaging glass production line that meets the emerging needs of the new era:
1. Increasing the added value of products by taking into account trends in digitalization, personalization and increased transparency (objective: development of a new technological process for the automatic application of functional materials on packaging glass and the integration of an electronic component into a smart label for packaging).
2. Produce products in a sustainable way (Objective: To reduce the environmental impact of the materials used to make the packaging).
3. Automation and digitization of processes, taking into account modern standards for safety, health and comfort at work – implementation of an advanced industrial environment that addresses the challenges of an aging workforce).
By demonstrating a new technological process for the automatic application of functional materials on packaging glass, acquiring a completely innovative production line and realizing an advanced industrial environment by integrating the latest technologies, the Consortium is the first in the wider region (and a breakthrough in the world) to present the processes, technologies and approaches of the packaging industry the glass of the future.
In order to demonstrate the new technological process for the production of packaging glass – for the automatic application of functional materials in an advanced industrial environment – in addition to development activities, an investment in state-of-the-art hardware and its upgrading is envisaged; whose value represents more than 50% of the total project value.
