Avery Dennison Expands Film Matrix Recycling

Avery Dennison and Belgian-based Seliplast AG (acronym for Second Life for Plastics) have launched what they say is a first-of-its-kind recycling option for label matrix waste made of polypropylene and polyethylene.

The program is now available to converters in Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and France.

This new offering builds on a 2014 pilot established by the two companies in which more than 1,000 tons of plastic laminate and matrix waste in Avery Dennison’s plant in Turnhout, Belgium were converted into new granulate for industrial and household products. It eliminates the need for waste material to be shipped outside of the region for manual sorting and recycling, which had previously been required due to the sticky nature of the residue.

When the required conditions are met, Avery Dennison and Seliplast AG can offer converters a viable local alternative to landfill or incineration, which also reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

One thought on “Avery Dennison Expands Film Matrix Recycling

  1. We would be delighted to know if post consumer packaging flexible laminate waste could be economically recycled creating value using Avery Dennison’s technology/ plant for recycling.We have mountains of this in India in every city and very little commercial use.
