New material development & processing technology for the evolving Mono Material movement in both food / non-food packaging

In many food-packaging applications, including stand-up pouches and flow wrappers, films are typically made using mixed materials in the structure.

Mono-material structures and barrier innovations are rapidly developing to replace laminations, “composites” utilizing paper, aluminium and barrier resins or mixed polymers !

As brandowners commit to using more recycled content in their packaging, today – we are not only going to see continued growth in this trend but with even more ‘sustainability’ built in to monolayer structures, by using  recycled grades – such as those seen in packaging fresh produce from mono material recycled PET.

What options are out there in mono material rigid packaging trays for fresh food ?

Are there clean recycled PE streams that can be incorporated into finished products with the performance comparable to virgin resin?.

Will usage of recycled grades weaken the performance of the mono material packaging ?

Numerous brand owners are working with suppliers and converters to redesign those structures to eliminate foil, nylon or other materials in order to meet both consumer demand for sustainability . Polyolefin suppliers have also been tweaking their processes to produce advanced grades of PE and PP and nearly all the major polyolefin players have developed recycled resin portfolios.

Oriented PE in films like MDO or BOPE are being explored now to deliver stiffer and tougher all-PE films.

The 3rd Recyclable Mono Material Packaging Solutions has lined up a top panel of experts in the packaging supply chain to share about the innovations & challenges in switching to mono materials while maintaining product quality !

NTCP (National Test Centre Circular Plastics)



NTCP’s mission is to Make plastics waste 100% recyclable

It is Europe’s first independent testing and research centre with facilities on industrial scale and it sets out to examine the behaviour of different plastics during sorting and washing. The centre conducts independent tests, challenging experiments and research. The practical tests and experiments with real waste streams yield a structural data collection that helps stakeholders and clients from the chain to accelerate their circular objectives.
