The circularity of multilayer films has been a challenge to recyclers and film manufacturers. Different solutions are proposed, each of which has its pros and cons. Design for recycling is a good candidate to close the loop in the packaging value chain. However, comparing to modern recycling technologies, a question will arise : novel recycling technologies vs design for recycling, which one is more sustainable. Within our expertise in TNO, we have conducted extensive research on recycling of multilayer packaging using dissolution as well as novel mechanical recycling methods.Continue reading “Circularity of multilayer films: novel recycling technologies vs design for recycling”
