Plastic packaging plays a crucial role in protecting products, reducing food waste and increasing convenience. However, there is no doubt that more sustainable consumption and waste management practices are needed. BarrierPack answers the market’s need for sustainable alternatives for flexible laminates by offering full recyclability, validated by extensive trials by CeDo Recyling in the Netherlands, a leader in recycling technologies.
Ton Emans, managing director at CeDo Recycling and president of Plastics Recyclers Europe, said: “Before the European Commission announced a strategy in January 2018 to ensure that all plastics packaging is recyclable by 2030, Mondi had already brought BarrierPack Recyclable to the commercialisation phase. This innovation not only shows that flexible plastic packaging can become truly circular, but also that we can produce, use and recycle it on a large scale. Flexible material designed for recycling is key to enabling circular safeguards of precious resources in Europe.”
“Mondi is committed to developing sustainable plastics using circular economy design approaches, so we are delighted to be able to bring this valuable innovation to market,” says Carl Stonley, Technical Account Manager at Mondi Consumer Goods Packaging.
