GEA is a development partner for fully recyclable flexible packaging

May 10, 2017

With The Full PE Laminate, Borealis and Borouge has developed an innovative monomaterial solution based on Borstar® Bimodal polyethylene, which makes it possible for PE flexible packagings to have a second life as valuable end products. The production-related advantages are also persuasive: The Full PE Laminate is just as stiff, tough and puncture resistant as conventional materials, it can be made into high-quality films. A consortium that included GEA introduced this ground-breaking solution for the manufacturing, processing and recycling of flexible plastic packaging, which is a matter of growing importance for the packaging industry. GEA experts in Weert, The Netherlands, adapted the packaging equipment GEA SmartPacker CX400 Quatro Seal for use with the new film material. They tested The Full PE Laminate on the vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) flowpacker and adapted it to achieve an optimum film run.
