In order to achieve this an analysis of the origin of the raw materials and their further processing will be presented. A comprehensive approach into the validation of packaging materials will be given to aid a life time assessment (cradle to gate vs cradle to grave) of different polymeric materials. Based on the findings of this investigation, a case study into the selection of packaging materials for different goods will be given and alternative packaging solutions will be discussed.
