High performance products which may be recycled after use in standard plastic or paper recycling streams.
From rollstock for FFS machines to standup pouches, ProAmpac offers multiple recyclable products for plastic flexible packaging.
In North America we work with How2Recycle®, the most widely available infrastructure for recycling flexible packaging, to ensure our solutions meet store-drop off requirements.
In Europe ProAmpac follows the recycle ratings guidelines to communicate with customers about products’ ratings and recycle-ready structures.
ProActive Recyclable Rollstock is a recyclable film formulation designed to overcome the challenges faced by form/fill/seal operations of recyclable structures. Considered a recycle ready structure, ProActive Recyclable film is pre-qualified for in-store drop-off in North America.
