Using less plastic and more recycled content is among many stated company targets. Upcoming legislation (i.e. PPWR), will require the inclusion of 30% PCR across all plastic packaging, including flexibles. But the industry seems unable to efficiently and cost-effectively supply the required demand at scale.
Could Mono rPET films help meet these targets?
Mono rPET offers excellent pack performance for 50-75% of household applications and represents the optimum in terms of material usage.
So far, PET hasn’t been among the preferred materials for household applications, as its circular benefits over existing structures have never been a Unique Selling Point. Until now…
A recent LCA study and recycling tests have shown that Mono PET Films for household packaging:
Can be integrated into packaging portfolios without negative impact on pack performance or packaging line efficiencies
Reduce plastic and increase food-grade PCR content
Can efficiently be sorted and recycled through chemical monomer recycling, offering superior Film-to-Film yields
Offer significant carbon reduction compared to existing structures
Offer economic benefits once scaled
By integrating rPET into household flexible packaging portfolios, we could meet global reduction targets and simultaneously provide input for an efficient film-to-film recycling system.
Stop trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Dare to think differently.
In this webinar, you will:
Gain insights into challenges of meeting carbon reduction and PCR targets with existing structures and recycling solutions for household flexible packaging.
Access new data (LCA) that shows mono rPET for household flexible packaging has significant environmental benefits over traditional structures.
Get inspired about how to integrate mono rPET into your household flexible packaging portfolio, and how this helps meet legislative PCR and carbon reduction targets.
Learn more about how monomer recycling is a best-in-class chemical recycling solution, and can provide you with a high-quality and stable supply of food-grade PCR.
