PP flexible recycling – a valuable feedstock stream to be established

Free on-demand webinar

Recording of live webinar from 26th November 2020

Duration: 20 minutes

Sustainable flexible packaging based on polypropylene

Polypropylene (PP) is a very versatile material which is today – thanks to its wide performance window – used in many different flexible as well as rigid applications. Consequently, PP represents a large volume among the plastic materials used in the packaging industry.

We want to put facts on the table and discuss with the entire value chain how PP brings value into flexible packaging and the recycling industry.

Focus of the webinar will be the debunking of 3 myths around PP flexible packaging:

  • Myth 1: PP flexible packaging stream is not sizeable
    Speaker: Peter Niedersüss

  • Myth 2: PP recyclate from flexible packaging does not find valuable end applications
    Speaker: Auli Nummila-Pakarinen

  • Myth 3: PP cannot be designed as mono material
    Speaker: Stefan Ortner
