Abstract

The plastic packaging design paradigm in the production process can cause degradation in the residual value of material. Degradation in residual value will reduce the quality of plastic packaging after recycling. Currently, plastic packaging design only focuses on material sources not on conservation of material and product. Design criteria for material value conservation already exist, but a real example of the packaging design still unavailable. From the observation on the residual value of material categories, there are many products’ packaging that violate design criteria for material value conservation. The aim of this study is to redesign rigid plastic packaging for material value conservation. Redesigning processes are based on the design criteria for material value conservation. Redesign of rigid plastic packaging uses the identification of mismatches in design, then scoring is given before and after redesign for further comparison. Scoring of packaging uses quantitative analysis technique. The result of redesigning is proposed pictures for product packaging design. The proposed designs packaging are evaluated by consumer acceptance survey. The results of this study are the score of design packaging increases after redesigning and the evaluation shows a high level of consumer acceptance for the proposed design. The proposed designs packaging are expected to be references of design for material value conservation and increase the material value after recycling.
