The latest smarter news from RPC bpi group
beyond the headlines
RPC bpi protec has been shortlisted for three leading packaging industry awards, underlining its innovative and sustainable approach to providing customers with the latest flexible packaging solutions.
X-EnviroPouch, the fully recyclable stand-up pouch solution, has been shortlisted for both ‘Best New Concept’ at the UK Packaging Awards and the fourth annual Sustainability Awards organised by Packaging Europe.
While traditional stand-up Doy pouches enable a wide variety of today’s consumer products to be conveniently packaged, their traditional laminate structure makes them very difficult to recycle. X-EnviroPouch is a new pouch solution that delivers functionality with full recyclability, bringing stand-up sustainability to this popular packaging format.
Separately, recognising the culture of sustainability across the business, RPC bpi protec’s Reprocess customer recycling initiative is a finalist in the ‘Best Environmental or Energy Efficiency Programme of the Year’ category at the annual Plastics Industry Awards. The closed-loop recycling initiative captures surplus plastic packaging and turns it into second-life products for the benefit of its customers, forming part of the RPC bpi Group’s recycling of over 85,000 tonnes of polyethylene each year.
