Global emissions must be reduced, however doing so without rolling back development is crucial. One of the biggest challenges for governments worldwide is to view the Earth’s ecosystem as a whole, and to avoid implementing short-term political “poster policies” in some countries or regions and not others.
In a world where solar and wind energy is becoming increasingly important, so too becomes the need to store the surplus green electricity during particularly sunny or windy periods. In northern Europe, this stored energy is particularly required in the winter due to the increased electricity demands, and therefore large, powerful batteries are needed to store this electricity.

Glad Midsommar! – Happy Midsummer!
Midsummer is an event that predates Christianity, and it has been celebrated ever since. Swedes typically meet up with family and friends over food and drinks, preferably close to nature and outdoors, always hoping for good weather but often getting disappointed. Still, midsummer is such an important festivity that there have been proposals to make the Midsummer's Eve the National Day of Sweden.
In Sweden it is often said that summer "officially" begins after midsummer and even though we at Opticom are not off on vacations quite yet, we want to take the opportunity to wish you a wonderful summer in due time!

Every year our Research division - Opticom International Research - is helping Lif - The Swedish Association of the Pharmaceutical Industry - to map the pharmaceutical companies' work with e-health.
The results for 2021 indicate a strong belief in the possibilities of e-health, but also show that the corona pandemic has affected the industry.

The world of bioplastics has exploded, partly driven by increasing government support which has been instrumental in driving the growth of the bioplastic packaging market. Bioplastics as a term encompasses a wide range of materials. Yet the word “bioplastic” often carries a narrow connotation of a compostable, plant-based plastic with limited functionality and a prohibitive cost.
Sustainability, particularly regulatory and public concerns around single-use packaging waste, combined with other powerful trends has resulted in some major changes in packaging consumption. Global regulators are moving closer to regulating bioplastics, and companies and retailers are proactively making bold commitments to improve both the sustainability of their packaging and to fundamentally rethink their packaging systems.

While much uncertainty remains, there are two global mega-trends that will continue to affect us – mainly concerning digitalization and sustainability. Before the pandemic, we saw a strong trend towards sustainability and especially environmental factors. Since then, the fight for human survival and business over the past year has shifted focus. Yet sustainability is here to stay, and critical in order to save our planet.
The pandemic has already given digitalization an extra boost, and to quote Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, “We’ve seen two years’ worth of digital transformation in two months.” Others claim that digitalization has now taken a 10-year leap forward. However, the MedTech industry has only begun to scratch the surface of their digitalization potential, and even less so for sustainability.
