Ceflex publishes design guidelines for flexible packaging

20 Jul 2020 − 

Ceflex, the cooperation initiative of various companies and associations along the value chain of flexible packaging, presented new design guidelines on July 9th.

These guidelines are intended to help in the development of recyclable consumer packaging solutions in the flexible packaging sector and strengthen the recycling economy. At the same time, they are intended to guide brands and retailers to make conscious design decisions so that all flexible packaging can be recycled.

The aim of the "Design for a Circular Economy (D4ACE)" guidelines is to produce high-quality recycled materials that remain in the value chain and can be used in a larger number of sustainable end markets. The focus of interest is on polyolefin-based structures, which account for over 80% of flexible packaging in the EU market.
