Whitepaper: Creating a PCR Food Contact Material that meets European regulations
This whitepaper describes our journey with an ambitious goal: to re-use recycled LDPE for food applications. After several positive results made by Trioworld Landskrona in their chemical evaluations, Trioworld decided to fully commit to designing an FCM (Food Contact Material) containing recycled material (PCR).
In order to achieve this “closing loop” we set apart three different but equally important criteria;
- To create a stable and thus recycle proof material
- To create a recyclable multi-layered laminate
- To make sure the structure was fully tested for safe use in food products
The Holy Grail in Sustainable Packaging:
“Answering the questions and matching the ambitions from our customers regarding sustainable packaging has been our most important priority at Trioworld. We’ve been a strong believer in PCR for a while now, and being able to apply PCR in a packaging concept for Food has truly been the holy grail of sustainable packaging innovation.”
