Policarta srl (
) has
recently introduced a newly patented technology, which opens new
opportunities for recycling of flexible packaging laminates.
The invention, called NoW™ (“No Waste”), allows consumers to dispose of
paper-based, multi-material laminates into the existing paper collection
system, and opens new opportunities for paper-based multi-material packaging, for which recycling has
always constituted an issue. NoW™ laminates are designed to be processed in the existing paper recycling
plants, where all the different substrates can be easily separated and, consequently, recycled.
Taghleef Industries and Policarta cooperated in the development of a laminate made of 70g/m2 coated
paper + 15 micron metalized BOPP, which thanks to NoW™ technology, obtained the certificate for
recyclability according to the recently introduced ATICELCA 501/13, UNI EN 643 and INGEDE 6-2009 norms.
Tests have been performed by Stazione Sperimentale Carta, Cartoni e Paste per Carta in Milan.
This packaging structure can be widely used in packaging of food products requiring barrier to moisture and
oxygen, such as biscuits and salty snacks.
Policarta Develops
Meeting with
Our Customers
/ Europe
This past autumn a meeting was held in Hungary with our customers
in the beautiful, southern town of Pécs. Here we celebrated the latest
upgrade to the largest production line of
Hungary, which has improved
the production capability, and more than doubled the output of our 5
layer specialty BOPP films. In addition to the official meeting program,
our guests had the opportunity to visit a variety of local sites, including
Cella Septichora, one of the nine Hungarian UNESCO world heritage sites
that is listed in the category of a cultural-historical architecture, and of
course, the cathedral of Pécs. The event took place in the Villány wine
region, where our customers were able to taste the original Hungarian cuisine pálinka, as well as the locally famous wines.
To close the festivities, everyone enjoyed a gala dinner, and capped the evening with a very dynamic folk-dance exhibition,
presented by a local dance-group, as we danced into the night with a lively party. We look forward to hosting our customers
again in Hungary!
