ALPLA and Henkel have set another milestone together in relation to sustainable packaging. The bottle bodies produced in Germany for the dishwashing detergent Pril will now be produced from 50 per cent recycled material from yellow bag waste. Recycled beverage bottles are to be used for the remaining part, so the bottle bodies will consist of 100 per cent recycled PET.
First Ever 100% Recyclable Aerosol Spray Cap with Insert, Mono-material: The Sustainable Way to Realize a Fine Spray
Focusing on sustainability as well as functionality, Weener Plastics (WP) has developed a revolutionary spray system for aerosol spray caps with an insert: the Ultimate Spray System (USS). This patented two-piece product technology – the most sustainable option on the market today – offers the performance of familiar, proven conventional spray caps.

Together with W&H as Ultimate Flexipack’s supplier of their previous 5 blown film lines, a new project for an inline MDO with VAREX II 5-layer blown film line was started.
Successfully creating sustainable and recyclable packaging starts during the design phase: The right choice of adhesive significantly influences what can be done with the package at the end of its primary use. With its RE range of adhesives and coatings designed for recycling, Henkel enables packaging to go beyond current functionalities – to create flexible packaging that has recyclability “built in”. Products in this range must fulfill stringent external testing requirements for sustainability.
Oberdiessbach, Switzerland –Hoffmann Neopac, a global provider of high-quality packaging for pharma, beauty and oral care, has “capped off” its commitment to reducing plastics in its tube designs.
