New, recyclable packaging film for fresh and processed food from Mondi

Mondi, a global producer of sustainable paper and packaging solutions, has created a recyclable polypropylene film. As the company states, it is ideal for the thermoforming of flexible films for modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) and vacuum packaging, which is known for its ability to extend the shelf life of products such as meat and cheese.

Mondi's film is certified as recyclable

The new, coextruded material includes a top and bottom web, with an internal barrier layer that comprises less than 5 percent of the entire structure, meaning it qualifies as a mono-material construction and is fully recyclable in existing waste streams. The Aachen, German-based Institut cyclos-HTP –– the Institute for Recyclability and Product Responsibility –– has independently certified that both the top and bottom webs of this construction have the highest qualification "Class AAA" in recyclability.

The previous multi-material construction rendered the previous packages unrecyclable and also resulted in a much higher carbon footprint as confirmed by life cycle analyses.

"We're delighted to report that this innovative new film reduces the package's carbon footprint by 23 percent compared to existing conventional structures,," said Günter Leitner, Managing Director of Mondi Styria, the Austrian plant that produces this film.
