The stretch film made of 80% of recycled raw material, produced by Barbier Group and distributed by Raja won a Packaging Oscar on November 25th 2019.
Packaging Oscar rewards manufacturers and professionals from packaging who innovate in the five following categories; “consumption”, “processing”,”production”,”environment and CSR” and “promising starts”
After several years of research, the Barbier’s team in partnership with RAJA is delighted to present its first manual stretch film made of 80% of recycled raw material. This Oscar illustrates the strong environmental commitment of Barbier Group. Indeed, incorporating 80% of recycled raw material without affecting the mechanical properties of the film is a real technological performance!
Manual Stretch Film with 80% or Recycled Raw Material :
This film is a real eco-friendly alternative to manual stretch film from 100% of virgin raw material. This film is used for palletizing and contains 80% of Recycled Raw Material namely :
- 30% of recycled film from selective collection
- 50% of recycled film from manufacturing process
The jury appreciates :
- The effort to integrate 80% of recycled raw material ( enhancement of the circular economy)
- The technical performance which ensures the same mechanical properties (resistance, stretchability) as the standard film
Together, let’s work to reduce our carbon footprint !
