Bemis Unveils Encore Recyclable Film for Standup Pouch Packaging
Bemis Company, Inc. has launched Encore ultra-clear recyclable film, a technology that combines readily recyclable material with shelf-appealing transparency, helping CPGs attract today’s consumers while achieving the sustainability goals of their businesses.
“CPGs can feel confident with Encore ultra-clear recyclable film - it can provide the clarity and transparency shoppers demand, and still run on most standard existing manufacturing equipment,” explains John Wilson, market manager.
Compared to prior offerings, this new Bemis technology provides the advantages of a standard standup pouch, with the added benefit of improved recyclability. It can also incorporate convenience features, such as press-to-close zippers.
Encore ultra-clear recyclable film is made of polyethylene, which was designed to be recycled through existing How2Recycle store drop-offs. This technology offers benefits of low haze, good stiffness, and high gloss. The film is currently available across multiple markets, including dish detergent pods, pet food and treats, confection items and more.
