Our innovation goals are:
With more than 60 years’ experience in the polymers industry, Selenis is in a position to lead our sector towards circularity through innovation in products and processes. Alliances with our clients to find ways where we can deliver high-end products with the minimum social and environmental impact, and even have a positive impact, is one of our main goals. Through our expertise, the collaboration between our production sites in Portugal and Italy, as well as through the engagement in industry and international associations, we are able to respond to the needs of our clients and to the demands of end users.
Innovation in the packaging industry can lead to the development of new, more sustainable materials and technologies, as well to production and recycling processes that increase recyclability, this contributing to the regeneration of resources.
In 2021 we launched our Innovation Task Force, joining together key team members from different countries, departments, and positions. In 2022 we tested pioneer innovation methodologies, that drove creative new ways to approach problems and create the novel concepts that are being implemented.
Our team learnt new ways to overcome hurdles in adoption and implementation of the projects we are working on, and with that we were able to drive progress on our projects at a much faster pace. With a new set of agile skills and stringent project management, we are now perpetuating innovation beyond workshops.
