Recycling

What is a Circular Economy ?
A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.

Why is Circular Economy important ?
As well as creating new opportunities for growth, a more circular economy will:

  • Reduce waste
  • Drive greater resource productivity
  • Deliver a more competitive economy
  • Better address emerging resource security/scarcity issues in the future
  • Help reduce the environmental impacts of our production and consumption

What is the future of packaging ?
We are committed to designing plastic products which have the lowest environmental impact throughout their life cycle.

  • We are offering 2-ply laminates which is 100 % re-cyclable. Giving your products a similar high-resolution print and appropriate shelf life according to the structure.
    • We are also working continuously to develop other 2-Ply laminate options for more flexible options.
  • Aluminum foil is known to be a material which is hard to recycle, but has great barrier properties leading to a longer shelf life.
    • We are substituting it with an alternative recyclable film, without a major compromise on the barrier and shelf-life properties. We are successfully supplying the laminate in roll form and pre-formed pouches for pre-cooked sauces.

Where next for recycled materials ?
We are committed to simulating the market for recovered materials through innovation, imagination and entrepreneurialism. Working with partners to create longer-lasting roads and more. Let’s work collaboratively to take things further, faster

  • IPP is recycling its in-house extrusion film waste back to granules. Extruding the recycled granules to make PE films and also selling recycled granules. We are using the recycled material for:
    • Poly bags for secondary packaging
    • Selling the granules to manufactures of Injection molding applications (demands are growing by the day).
  • Some manufactures re-use the waste produced to make furniture, water-proofing membranes, build more durable roads, etc. Eventually reducing carbon foot print and moving towards a circular environment.
