Recyclability

Our key differentiator and objective of our innovative focus is twofold. Firstly, we are focused on replacing plastic in packaging by developing alternative paper-based packaging products, explore our EcoPack product. Secondly, we are also developing new, sustainable wash-off adhesives which maximise the recyclability of  PET, discover how our new PurityWash product makes this possible. These products will be key for businesses due to the introduction of "Plastic Tax" in February 2022, as it is crucial the recyclability of packaging is improved to reduce landfill and maximise business efficiency.
