• Amcor has expanded its AmLite product line with the launch of a new high-barrier laminate that will allow customers to move to recyclable flexible packaging across a variety of consumer-product segments.

    Made from the company’s revolutionary, more sustainable high-barrier polyolefin film, AmLite Ultra Recyclable can package a range of food, home and personal care, and pharmaceutical products, and be recycled in existing polyolefin recycling streams.

    Featuring an ultra-thin, transparent barrier coating to replace aluminium and metallised barriers, AmLite can be used for a variety of formats, such as pillow pouches, stand-up and spouted pouches; bags; lidding for trays and containers; stick packs and more.

    Luca Zerbini, Vice President of Marketing, Innovation, and Sustainability at Amcor, said this new generation of AmLite adds recyclability to the environmental benefits and is the culmination of several years of research and development.

    “Our recyclable laminate delivers high-barrier protection, can be used on our customers’ filling machines, and can be recycled where polyolefin collection and recycling streams exist,” Ms Zerbini said.

    “AmLite Ultra Recyclable will help solve sustainability challenges for consumer goods brands, pharmaceutical companies and retailers, and help keep plastics out of the environment.”
