aging companies have begun
off ering sustainable packaging
solutions to brand owners.
Huhtamaki Oyj, a global food
packaging specialist based
in Finland, has introduced
polypropylene and polyethylene-based
monomaterial
packaging solutions with more
than 90% content of a single
type of polymer. These plastic
packaging solutions claim to
off er properties such as high
barriers to oxygen and moisture
as well as ease of recycling,
which are essential for
the food and beverage industry.
Large-sized plastic flexible
packaging companies such
as Uflex Ltd. have introduced
an entire packaging solutions
range made of up to 100%
post-consumer recycled PET
under the trademark Asclepius.
As awareness among consumers
regarding the impact of
plastic packaging on the environment
increases, consumer
demand for products with environmentally
friendly packaging
will surge significantly. Brands
will try to promote their products
by connecting them to

sustainable plastic packaging
to get consumers' attention.
Emergence of waste
management companies
Brand owners are focused on
establishing a well-organised
plastic waste collection and
recycling ecosystem for their
products. Since the plastics recycling
industry in India is largely
unorganised, several companies
have emerged to serve as
a bridge between producers
and plastic waste recyclers.
These companies are known

as waste management companies
or producer responsibility
organisations. For instance,
Saahas Zero Waste and Nepra
are actively working in this domain,
along with several digital
marketplaces such as Recykal.
They have established digital
ecosystems to streamline the
process of EPR credit transfer, a
concept introduced by the government
to transfer EPR credits
from plastic recyclers to brand
owners. This serves as a classic
example of responsibility transfer
from brand owners to plastic
recyclers based on monetary
aspects.
India's EPR Act, with its multifaceted
objectives, aligns with global
sustainability goals. The Act is
expected to play a major role in
the transformation of the entire
recycling ecosystem by turning
it into an organised industry. This
will lead to growth in income and
improvements in the working
conditions of waste collectors,
along with a reduction in the industry's
reliance on landfills and
incineration, leading to a decline
in pollution in the environment.
It aims not only to minimise
waste generation but also to
foster resource conservation,
encourage recycling, raise environmental
awareness and
promote sustainable packaging
solutions. The Act's impact is
already evident through rising
business collaborations, growing
foreign investments, and
technological innovations in the
recycling industry. It is poised
to significantly elevate India's
plastic waste recycling to meet
the ambitious national target of
recycling 60% of total plastic
waste by 2028.
... for everyone who has to process recyclates!
Requirements and specifications are changing. Many products already have to contain
fi xed amounts of recycled material. With the ENGEL recycling package or by fi ltering and
degassing the melt in the two-stage process, your regrind can be processed directly. This
means: up to 100% recycling material and as a result high cost, energy and CO2 savings.
