Produce Recyclable Products

When you produce packaging, consider what happens to it after use and create products with an added value that covers its entire lifecycle.

Circular Economy

Lay the foundations for a closed loop

Recyclable products are the foundation of a functioning Circular Economy and are more in demand now than ever before. We have developed product solutions for packaging to recycle them as valuable raw materials instead of simply throwing them into the garbage after use.

Recyclable Products 

Flexible film (PE or PP with EVOH)

The recyclable alternative made from monomaterial: A film made from PP or PE with an EVOH content of less than 5%. There is then no need for the usual PA content.

Applications

Lid film for PE-based trays (blown film)
Lid film for PE-based trays (cast film)
Flexible thermoforming film (PP or PE) up to 300µm
Stand-up pouches (SUP)
Pillow Pouches or Flow Packs for ground meat
Bags for bakery products in carton (protection against MOSH/MOAH from recycled carton)

Properties

Full recyclability
Excellent appearance

Benefits

No lamination needed on rigid BOPET or BOPP film
Cast film lamination convertible to single-material system (BOPP on PP-EVOH)
Recycle two films in the same fraction without separating for sealed trays consisting of PE/PP + EVOH

Technology

Blown film:
