Indeed, Naperlou. It's interesting to see how materials advances, and new applications for same, are enhancing not just products but packaging and thus supporting quality assurance and enabling better yields (less damage). The key difference recently is the affordable cost and flexibility of materials so that we're not talking replacement but actually the ability to use them in applications where previously there weren't any options.

This is a very interesting example of a new process bring better "functionality" to a process while being more efficient.  It requires less heating time (less energy) and the material can easily be recycled.  A great example of design engnieering improvements that help everyone.
