Novamont and Saes Group launch new alternatives to non-recyclable plastic
Bioplastics firm Novamont and functional materials company Saes Group have developed solutions to meet the growing demand for materials with lower environmental impact and high functional performance.
Working with two prominent research companies, the firms have unveiled a range of compostable solutions that are UNI EN 13432 standard compliant.
Intended for use in a wide variety of applications, including food packaging, the new solutions provide gas and water vapour permeability comparable to that of traditional packaging which they say can be recycled at their end-of-life together with organic waste in industrial composting plants.
This is “an absolute first for the food packaging sector”, making it possible to combine compostability and gas barrier properties, according to Novamont and Saes Group.
Produced using raw materials of plant origin, the packaging solutions developed by Novamont and Saes Group in collaboration with leading Italian manufacturers of flexible packaging are ideal alternatives to the multi-layer packaging that is not recyclable or not recycled because contaminated with food residues.
Novamont will be showcasing its new R&D and engineering solutions the company’s stand at K 2019 in Düsseldorf (hall 6 – stand A58).
