Lamiflex recycling concept

Recycling for better sustainability and pricing

The Lamiflex recycling concept ensures proper recycling of Lamiflex plastic packaging materials. It closes the material loop and ensures that we can maintain prices at a lower level even if costs for external raw materials increase.

The Lamiflex recycling concept

The Lamiflex recycling concept is set-up to ensure proper recycling, and if possible in a closed loop. The Lamiflex protective packaging materials are applied as usual in your production facility. Once your products have arrived at your end customer and the protective packaging is removed, it is placed in special containers. 

Discarded edge protection is picked up and brought to a Lamiflex recycling center where it is ground to a material that is used for production of new Lamiflex products. 

Stretchfilm, with or without reinforcement, can also be included in our recycling concept. It is turned into a PCR plastic to be used as a raw material for manufacturing of new polyethylene products.

Plastic materials are perfect for recycling

Thermoplastics such as polyethylene (PE) and PP are especially suitable for recycling. Using only a small amount of energy the plastic can be grinded, melted and used to manufacture new products. The plastic retains its properties and can be recycled over and over again without deteriorating.

Lamiflex recycling centers

Currently we have recycling centers established in Slovakia and in Germany. New recycling centers are established as needed, based on requests by direct customers and end customers in cooperation.
