Driven by a shared vision of sustainability and strong collaboration, DSM, Sabic, Cepsa, Fibrant, and Viscofan have created a multi-barrier casing for meat products made via advanced recycling post-consumer plastics. The transition towards recycled-based multi-layer films enables the packaging industry to adopt a more sustainable solution without compromising functional performance. The development of this packaging material underlines a strong commitment to enabling a circular economy by working together with partners throughout the value chain and addresses the increasing consumer, societal and regulatory demand for more sustainable multi-layer barrier casing solutions. Produced by Viscofan, the newly developed sustainable casing claims to consist of several layers of different polymers. DSM Engineering Materials supplies the high-performance certified circular polyamide (PA) Akulon CRC-MB, and Sabic supplies the high-performance certified circular polyethylene (PE)* from its Trucircle portfolio of circular solutions. Both products are based on used and post-consumer plastics, which would otherwise be discarded as landfill or lost to incineration. Using advanced recycling, the used plastic is converted into new feedstock, which then enters the production chain to deliver new…
