The Good

  • Recyclable in the paper recycling stream unlike most  flexible packaging alternatives
  • Paper recycling works effectively in most places around the world, with kerbside collection widely available
  • There is no limit to the number of times paper can be recycled making it a highly circular material
  • More cost-effective than most bioplastic alternatives to flexible packaging
  • Durable, highly functional and can be used as a direct replacement for plastic in numerous formats

The Bad

  • Flexible packaging formats like pouches are likely to be sorted out of paper recycling streams as the majority are made from plastic with a thin paper outer layer
  • The material needs to be thick in order to meet paper recycling standards (120um+) limiting its use to pouches and robust form / fill / seal machinery
  • Although still undergoing certification for acceptance in paper recycling streams, it has been successfully trialed and accepted by several recycling facilities
