Sustainability

What does “reLIFE50" means?

reLIFE50 is a brand name which identifies those laminating BOPP films manufactured by Taghleef Industries which contribute with 50% of their weight to using PCR (Post-Consumer Recycled). In the manufacturing process, both, Polypropylene and the adhesive (for thermal films) are PCR.

What is PCR chemical recycling?

PCR Chemical Recycling is a raw material which is manufactured from Post-Consumer Recycled plastics, which cannot be recycled mechanically, jointly with fossil-based feed stock and, hence, its quality, characteristics and properties are equal to fossil-based raw materials. Polypropylene and the adhesive (for thermal films) coming from PCR Chemical Recycling are suitable for Food Contact Compliant.

What’s the origin of the recycled raw material, PCR?

Petrochemical companies undergo innovative chemical recycling processes to return mixed plastic waste back to the original polymer to help drive circular economy. Polymers are produced using a pyrolysis oil feedstock that comes from the recycling of mixed plastic waste.

What is a circular economy?

A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design. This means that materials constantly flow around a ‘closed-loop’ system, rather than being used once and then discarded. As a result, the value of materials, including plastics, is not lost by being thrown away as they come back to the cycle.
