Driving Sustainability: Initiatives of a UK-based BOPP Film Manufacturer

A UK-based BOPP Film manufacturer is driving sustainability in the industry with five key initiatives. They focus on incorporating recycled content, developing high-barrier films through coating technologies, promoting monomaterial laminates to replace non-recyclable structures, advocating for BOPP recycling as best environmental practice, and exploring chemical and mechanical recycling options for polypropylene. Their product offers fully recyclable solutions based on renewable polypropylene sourced from forestry by-products or waste cooking oil.

Not all European countries recycle BOPP flexible packaging (e.g. UK and France). Europe’s recent plastic tax aims to encourage the industry to use recycled materials as the best end-of-life material option. Recycling does present other challenges, such as food compliance.

These include incorporating recycled content and utilizing coating technologies for high-barrier films. They also emphasize the development of monomaterial laminates to replace non-recyclable materials such as PET, PVC and advocate for BOPP recycling as the environmentally responsible choice.
